Animal Care Services

Bernalillo County Animal Care Services is excited to enter this brand new world of animal welfare with the opening of our Animal Care and Resource Center!

On Jan. 14, 2019, we extended our services to offer adoptions to the residents of Bernalillo County.

We are an open admission animal shelter, so we can never be certain exactly what animals we will have available for adoption on any given day, so please, if you don’t find the companion animal you are looking for right away, check back often!

Our new Animal Care and Resource Center is located at 3001 2nd St. SW.
For information about adopting or other services, call (505) 314-0281 or (505) 468-PETS (468-7387). Our fax number is (505) 462-9745.
Our temporary hours are Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
and our pet viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Email us at animal@bernco.gov.

Studies from leading animal welfare organizations have found that there is no correlation between the amount of money someone pays for an animal and the amount of care they provide. As a result, we are offering donation based adoptions…..meaning, you decide your adoption fee!

All proceeds go to Bernalillo County's Quality of Life Community Fund, which will continue to benefit the thousands of homeless animals that come through our doors in the future.

What should you donate?

If you are a millionaire, we will happily accept a million dollars! However, it is about the amount of love in your heart, and not the money in your bank account that makes a house a home. We will happily accept whatever you can offer. We’ve found our average adopter donates between $50 to $60.

Thank you for helping us through our “soft opening!"

For the next couple of months, we will be open Monday through Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Animal viewing and adoption hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Stay tuned for our next steps!
