Urgent Dogs of Roswell Animal Control

Two more dogs at Roswell Animal Control in New Mexico are slated to die by lethal injection. Trevor, or better known as Cage 57, is a two-year-old brindle pit bull mix. He must have had an owner, because he came into the shelter wearing a pretty blue collar. Sadly his family has not claimed him.

Does his family work, and they are not able to get to Roswell Animal Control at the limited hours of operation? Does the family even have the money to reclaim their dog? Does the shelter ever reach out to the community with low cost or free spay and neuter programs?

Look into his face; that hope of someone leading him out of the shelter still glimmers in his eyes.

Then there's Flander, or better known as Cage 52; this two-year-old black and white heeler might have a rescue person coming for him on Friday, but "tomorrows" aren't always promised at Roswell Animal Control.
