I found a stray animal and Animal Control is closed. What should I do with the animal?

You have a few options. If you feel comfortable with the animal you can keep it and contact Animal Control the following day, or you can take the animal to Animal Control and place it in one of the drop off cages on the North side of the building. If you are unable to keep the animal or transport it to Animal Control, then you can call the police departments’ non emergency number, 575-439-4300, and they will dispatch the on-call Animal Control Officer to your location for pickup.
