My neighbor’s dog is chained up in the backyard. I never see him feed his dog and I am constantly giving the dog water. What should I do?

Contact Animal Control by calling 575-439-4330 and they will send an Officer to do a welfare check on the dog. The Officer will check to see if the dog is in distress and requires immediate vet care. He will also check for the presence of food, water, and adequate shelter. The Officer will make contact with the owner of the dog and check for current rabies vaccination and city license. The Officer will then determine what steps are necessary to ensure the health and welfare of the dog.
