As Summer 2021 begins, the City of Rio Rancho’s Animal Resource Center (ARC) is excited to find pet residents their forever homes. From June 7, 2021 through July 31, 2021, adoption costs for long-term and spayed/neutered, vaccinated, chipped, and fully-vetted pets are reduced to $25. Adoption costs are regularly $100.
The ARC, located at 3441 Northern Boulevard NE in Rio Rancho, always has a wide selection of pets available for adoption. Those interested in pet adoption may make an appointment to visit the Center by calling (505) 891-5075. To view available pets, please visit www.facebook.com/RioRanchoAnimalResourceCenter or search for the Animal Resource Center on www.petfinder.com.
Pet adoption from shelters offers many benefits, including boosting your psychological, emotional, and physical health and helping reduce the number of pets in shelters. Additionally, when you adopt a pet from the Rio Rancho Animal Resource Center, you have the benefit of getting a pet who has received a medical evaluation (and spaying/neutering), vaccinations, a microchip, and behavior screening.
