  • Dozens of puppies may be euthanized unless adopted

    LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Plans by the city-county animal shelter in Las Cruces to euthanize about 50 puppies will be re-evaluated after a weekend rush of adoptions.

    Kennel supervisor Paul Richardson says the number of expected euthanizations is way down because people came to the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley after hearing about the plans.

    Richardson says 17 puppies were adopted Saturday and the shelter was on track to do about the same on Sunday. That's way above normal.
