ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Homeless pets in metro Albuquerque just got a serious upgrade to their shelter accommodations.
Animal Humane New Mexico is celebrating the grand opening of its $2.8 million state-of-the-art adoption center.
The new building features 25 'dog real life rooms' complete with their own ventilation and drainage systems.
Each room also has its own digital tablet where potential adopters can get a peek at the dog in action before deciding if they want to meet the pooch.
Animal Humane says you don't have to be interested in adopting right now to come check out the new digs.
"We really want people to come out, see this amazing new addition to our community for homeless pets and invest in our work," Animal Humane Marketing Director Dawn Glass said. "We're doing great things for homeless pets, and we want everyone to come experience that this weekend."
This is just phase one of planned construction at Animal Humane located at 615 Virginia Street SE.
The festivities continue on Sunday ( details here ).
When it's cold outside Albuquerque and Rio Rancho's homeless sometimes count on the kindness of strangers to keep warm.
