LAS CRUCES, New Mexico- Residents of Las Cruces have spoken with animal officials to voice concerns over the lack of 24-hour veterinary care.
Currently, there is no 24-hour care at veterinarian hospitals over the weekend.
That's according to Dawn Duncan, Founder and President of Animal Companions of Las Cruces. He told ABC-7 that if your animal has an emergency in Las Cruces, you may have to take it to El Paso, where it may cost more to transport than aid.
Duncan has spoken with the Las Cruces City Council and would like to collaborate with non-profit organizations to alleviate the burden.
