BBSNews 2016-01-12 — ABQ AWD: The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department says Star Wars pets have arrived and are ready for adoption. The event will take place at all City shelters, Saturday, January 16. The Force is strong in these lovable furry creatures. Let the Force awaken within you. It’s a Force that can’t be beat. Much like Luke – these pets are just looking for their fathers. Let it in and adopt a Star Wars pet. Select a unique companion for an adoption fee of only $10 for pets 6 months or older.
Along with a dog adoption Animal Welfare is providing one day of free Jedi basic dog training. Star Wars fans can come to the Eastside shelter from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to take a photo with their favorite Star Wars character. The photos will be done by WinstonFoto.com, and the 501st Legion will be in Star Wars costumes.
