Local Albuquerque shelters will gather to keep the city’s needy animals warm this winter.
From November 18th-December 20th, Operation Silent Night takes place. The month long initiative that look for comforting donations like blankets, sweaters and beds.
These gifts go to both cats and dogs that reside in a city shelter while they wait for loving homes. Organizers say blankets will give the animals some relief from the cold cement floors they sometimes lie on.
Things like treats and toys are also welcome. All donations will be dropped off on Christmas Eve.
People can take their donations to the Animal Welfare Department shelters or any Petco stores in Albuquerque.
