VOLUNTEER.  If you have some time to "spare", consider becoming an Animal Care Center Volunteer.    Kennel Kompadres is proud to support the volunteers and their good work!  What better way to help the animals than to help counsel prospective adopters, greet and help the public, and care for and socialize the animals.  You can choose!  Be a foster parent, work with the "Fraidy Cats", walk the dogs, or help teach "social skills."  The choice is yours!  Because the  budget for this program is limited, we happily fill in the gaps, especially when it comes to providing recognition for these hard-working folks.  Volunteers supply the work, we supply the pizza!!

Toys, toys, toys.  We've supplied lots of toys--dog and cat - and rabbit!.  It's always time for new toys!

Kennel supplies.  We've bought dozens of towels, dog beds for the dogs and puppies, cozy beds for the kittens and cats, crates, dog and cat food bowls, litter boxes, kitty scratching posts, cardboard carriers, and kennel signs.

Grooming.  Electric clippers, replacement clipper blades, combs, brushes, grooming shears, hair dryers--the animals have to look their best!

Outreach and education.   We're always happy to fund the purchase of educational brochures and pamphlets and coloring books.

Adoption Events.   Shelter "open houses" and off-site adopt-a-thons are a regular occurrence.  We  provide funding for promotion and "special touches" - decorations, Halloween candy or Christmas stockings and treats for the children.  

Veterinary - Angel Fund.  "We need a quick x-ray to make sure a kitten is "mended" and ready for adoption.  Can you help?"  Of course!  "We've got a momma dog--all eight of her puppies are adopted and she's left.  We have people who are interested in her but she needs surgery.  Can you help?"  Yes!  Help us maintain this special fund for "special needs" animals.   

Spay/Neuter programs.  When the budget and reality clash, we are there to help fill in the gap to keep these important projects going.  Spay/neuter programs are at the heart of stemming pet overpopulation problems in Albuquerque.  

Foster program.  We are extremely pleased to help with the foster program.  This program saves lives every day!!  The foster parents supply the love and we supply the replacement milk for the puppies and kittens.
