Animal Humane New Mexico celebrates the generosity of the neighborhood on Grateful Wednesday

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – If you’re looking to add a furry companion to your family this year, Animal Humane New Mexico can help. Animal Humane PR and Media Manager Madison Beets highlights adoptable Lady Bird and talks about the success of Giving Tuesday.

About five years old, Lady Bird is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix who came to Animal Humane as a stray. While not much is known about her past, Animal Humane officials learned that Lady Bird is very friendly and is a fan of cheese and squeaky toys.

Animal Humane New Mexico has reopened for walk-in adoptions on both their main Albuquerque campus at 615 Virginia St. and their Westside Adoption Center at 10141 Coors Blvd. They are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The staff ask visitors to wear masks.

December 1st is a thankful Wednesday as it comes after the biggest giving day of the year, Giving Tuesday. Madison said the organization raised over $ 61,000 this year to go towards Animal Humane’s programs and helping the pets they help annually.
