  • Mesilla Valley shelter trying to place puppies

    LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Officials at the Mesilla Valley Animal Services Center say they are struggling with an unusually high number of puppies.

    The shelter says it has more than 40 puppies, ranging in age from day-old newborns to 12 weeks. Population Supervisor Curtis Herring says some were brought in with their mothers as strays, while others were motherless - surrendered by their owners.

    He said the shelter is not a good place for puppies as the threat of disease is high.

    The shelter said it is working with local and national rescues to try and place the puppies. And it is hoping to find homes for some over the weekend.
