The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is hosting free Pit Bull and Pit Mix training every Saturday at Los Altos Park during the month of October.
Animal Welfare’s goal is to get much-needed resources to these dogs and the folks who love them. Understanding the breed of a Pit Bull is the first step to being a responsible pet owner. A well-trained Pit Bull can be an ambassador for his or her breed, showing the world that with a loving home and training, Pit Bulls can make wonderful pets. Education and responsible owners are critical in changing the perception of this breed.
During the month of October we are offering free public microchip for Pit Bulls and Pit Mixes only. No appointment needed at the East Side Animal Shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd. N.E., or the West Side Animal Shelter, 11800 Sunset Gardens S.W.
Owners of Pit Bulls and Pit Mixes can sign up now for each 1-hour Saturday training classes.
Below are the dates of 1-hour classes that will be offered in October.
Oct. 7 – 1st class: 10:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.; 2nd class: noon – 1 p.m.
