ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Balloon Fiesta Park went to the dogs for two days. And cats.

Fetch and Releash, a pet show, brought adoptable pets from all over New Mexico – rescue groups and shelters from afar when Raton, Gallup, and Española came with cats and dogs in need and local puppies and kittens from Albuquerque and beyond New York joined Santa Fe.

In addition to certain breeds of dogs represented, such as Basset Hounds, Great Danes, Greyhounds, Labradors, and many more, the two-day exhibition also brought in non-profit organizations that rescue pet rats, prairie dogs, and horses.
