The Animal Welf are Alliance is holding another adoption event on Saturday at Tractor Supply, 5000 N. Main St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sammye Leflar-Bohnstehn said: “We will have around 25 dogs to choose from; it’s our largest event yet. We will have food vendors, 4-H and a raffle.” There will be activities for the children, too.
The adoption rates are going to be around $100, but these will include spay-neuter costs and every dog will be up to date on their shots.
Meanwhile the Roswell Urgent Animals at Animal Control on Facebook is getting national attention. “It is really starting to heat up. We have adopted out dogs to Alabama, Florida, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Texas as well as lots of local adoptions,” said Leflar-Bohnstehn.
She noted that since the inception of the Roswell Urgent Animals page the number of animals being euthanized is down by 50 percent while owner returns have increased. “We are sending dogs to rescue organizations in Albuquerque, Corrales, Santa Fe and Clovis,” Leflar-Bohnstehn said.
Among the dogs on offer is Bruno, a 2-year-old Chihuahua. He is neutered and has all his shots. Lucy, an 18-month-old yellow Labrador retriever will also be there to greet potential human families. Leflar-Bohnstehn described another canine participant, Mona Lisa, as officially cute. The fourth dog, Katie, is a heeler/border collie mix.
