At Roswell Animal Control, the dogs are only guaranteed seven days from their date of impound to the day they are due out; the euthanasia rate is staggering.
The Facebook page, Roswell Urgent Animals at Animal Control stays in constant contact with Animal Control to help the community find their lost pets, and lend exposure to the shelter animals to give them a chance at finding homes or qualified rescues.
Since Feb. 18, Beth, a brown and black German shepherd cross has been at the facility. Little is known about her, except her nails are cruelly overgrown, and it looks as though it is painful for her to even walk.
Her age has mistakenly been listed as under a year, but most agree, Beth more than likely seems to be more like eight years of age.
Meanwhile she sits completely dejected in Cage 3.
If ever there is a sad story of an innocent dog having to deal with an irresponsible owner, it is Beth's tale.
For more information about Beth or the other beautiful dogs at Roswell Animal Control located at 705 E. McGaffey in Roswell, New Mexico, please call (575)-624-6722.
