The city of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is hosting a holiday event for pets spending the holidays in the shelters.
This year’s annual Operation Silent Night encourages everyone to donate gently used or new blankets, dog sweaters, jackets, beds, toys (for dogs and cats) or treats for all the pets awaiting adoption to get a new permanent home.
Santa’s elves will distribute the gifts on Christmas Eve.
Those interested in volunteering or bringing donations can drop them off at the Animal Welfare Department shelters or at any Petco stores in Albuquerque beginning November 18th through December 20th.
