There is no doubt that denizens of Roswell,NM love their dogs. That is a picture of a beautiful and happy Husky in the Ford fx4 off road pickup truck that had stopped at the intersection of 19th and Main Street near JP Stone Community Bank and Walgreens.
Contrast this peaceful and happy picture of a cruising canine with the sentiments and concerns of the Death Row Dogs of SE New Mexico page maintained at Facebook whose most recent post proclaimed headed to the landfill. Animal control will be killing today to make room for more intakes over the weekend. PLEASE ADOPT OR WORK WITH A LOCAL RESCUE TO FOSTER.
Another post from the same page takes a pot shot at the chief of police in Roswell who the poster believes is behind the 7 day and then be euthanized policy of Animal Control: PLEASE consider opening your home to a sweet dog . . . I saw him yesterday and he is as precious as can be . . . just adorable and only 1 yr old . . . young enough to train to have fun with and past the puppy poops. If he is not tagged by a rescue or adopted, he WILL be destroyed and none of the dogs gets a reprieve from this hard-hearted chief of police in ROSWELL, NM.
I do admire the creators of the FB page for sticking up for man’s best friend, but it is irresponsible dog owners, NOT animal control, who are to blame for all the feral, uncared for dogs roaming the streets of Alien City. I wonder how long all the dog lovers would propose the dogs be kept alive at AC? Ideally, most all would prefer a no kill shelter versus a kill shelter, but Who pays for it all? Still many thanks to all you dog loving rescue folks!
