BernCo Animal Care Services to Make Additional Changes to Policy for Relinquishing Animals


Bernalillo County Animal Care Services is making additional changes to its policy and procedures for citizens who are thinking about relinquishing their animal to the county.

Many situations can occur resulting in an owner wishing to relinquish an animal(s) to Bernalillo County Animal Care Services and the new policy will determine the ways to keep animals in the best environment possible.

“Due in part to the response from the community, additional revisions are being made to the animal relinquishment policy that the county announced last week,” says Animal Care Services Direct Misha Goodman. “Having strong community input is always a key factor in making policies that enhance the lives of our pets and pet owners.”

The policy changes announced last month for relinquishing animals are on hold. The new policy will go into effect in mid-April, allowing time to make the additional changes that were suggested.
