This is a 5-year-old female basset hound mix ready for a good home. You can visit her at the Roswell Animal Shelter at 705 E. McGaffey St. The impound number is 6427. Shelter hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday 8 a.m.-4 p.m. You can call the shelter at (575) 624-6722 or go to http://roswell-nm.gov/176/Animal-Services to learn more about adoption requirements.
People are encouraged to consider adopting an animal from the shelter, but please remember having a pet is a long-term commitment and should be made only if you are able to properly care for the animal.
Tip of the Week:
Introduce your dog to your household slowly. Many pairs of hands petting him or her at once will only frighten your dog. Later, introduce him or her to neighbors, regular visitors and other family members. Give your dog a sense of who your - and your dog's - friends are.
