      Animal Welfare is Honoring a Fallen Superhero

      At a superhero themed event in partnership with Comic Crusaders 4 NM, the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is honoring the late Travelin’ Jack, a beloved shelter puppy who became a superhero for his fellow shelter animals, spending much of his life raising awareness and funds to help hundreds of pets get adopted from local shelters.

      Proceeds from the event celebrating Travelin’ Jack will benefit Kennel Kompadres, whose work supports the Animal Welfare Department in their work on education, the spay/neuter program, and helping city shelter pets find forever homes.

      Select a sidekick for an adoption fee of only $5 for any pet on Saturday, October 5. PetSmart will distribute coupon books along with a free gift with every pet adoption.

      The event will coincide with a $5 ‘Adopt A Sidekick’ Event: Along with any dog adoption, Animal Welfare is providing one day of free “sidekick superpowers” dog training. Some of our adoptable sidekick’s superpowers include a love for snuggling, a fondness for adventures, and incredible cuteness.
