The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley is looking for fosters and adopters to help the shelter with the “crushing intake” numbers during the spring.

The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley are in the beginning of the spring season, where the numbers go up due to the spring baby boom. Unfortunately, last week the number of euthanasias also went up at the shelter due to the facility being at full capacity.

In the course of just three days last week, the center took in over a hundred animals and over 60 animals had to be put down The shelter’s Executive Director Beth Vesco-Mock told the Las Cruces Sun-News:

“The ASCMV is always operating a full capacity so unfortunately 59 animals has had to be euthanized since May 1 to accommodate this crushing intake, and more will be done (euthanized) this afternoon.”

The shelter is now asking for more people to come out and adopt some of the animals in the shelter. If you’re not able to adopt, they would still like people to consider fostering some animals to help.

You can adopt an animal now through the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley, located at 3551 Bataan Memorial West in Las Cruces. They are open noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. All animals adopted are spayed and neutered, as well as all age-appropriate vaccinations with microchip and license.
