Animal shelters protect and care for homeless animals in a community. They take in animals when owners, for many reasons, can no longer keep the pet or when the animal is lost. The animals are housed and offered for adoption to new homes. Animal shelters offer a valuable service to protect the animals and people of a community. This video segment from WILD TV features one of the two shelters of the Albuquerque Animal Services where animals are held and are available for adoption.
