This department is charged with enforcing relevant animal laws contained in the Municipal Code and New Mexico State Statutes. They respond to calls for service relating primarily to dogs and cats. They also handle calls relating to porcupines, skunks, rabbits, and to a lesser degree antelope, deer, and other game animals. In the case of game animals, they work closely with the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
Animal Control responds to calls for service for dog bites, possible rabid animals, sick animals, deceased animals, mistreated animals, and inappropriate animals within the city limits. The call are generated from all city departments and the general public. Even though the officers are few in number, they are a highly dedicated group of City employees who care a great deal about our city, animals, their treatment and the adverse impact of stray animals on the community.
