[ARCHIVED] Animal Control to Focus Attention on High Priority Calls

Animal Control Vehicle

Las Cruces Animal Control, part of the Las Cruces Police Department, will maintain operations during the current public health emergency but will focus primary attention to calls deemed high priority.

Calls considered to be high priority for Animal Control officers include:

  • LCPD officer assistance.
  • Animal bites.
  • Vicious or dangerous dog complaints.
  • Animal cruelty complaints.
  • Animal care and maintenance complaints.
  • Stray animal calls.
  • Animals in traps.
  • Snake calls.

The following calls will be suspended until further notice:

  • Owner release of healthy animals unless they pose a threat to the owner or public.
  • Issuing of City-owned animal traps. All City-owner traps will be picked up on March 22.
  • Permit inspections.

To file a report with Las Cruces Animal Control, call (575) 526-0795.

The temporary changes were made to reduce the number of human contacts during the public health emergency and to help reduce the number of animals at the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley.

The Las Cruces Police Department encourages the public to heed recommendations set forth by state and federal officials on social distancing to help reduce the transmissions of illness.
