Yes, this is true. Cats must follow the same ordinances as dogs. They must be kept on a leash when not indoors or in an enclosed fence. For more information, call Animal Control at 575-439-4330.

There is a city ordinance that requires all dogs and cats that reside in the city limits to be licensed. The city license aides Animal Control officers in ensuring that dogs and cats receive their rabies vaccination (rabies vaccination is required to purchase a license.) The city license is also a valuable tool used by Animal Control to locate owners of stray pets. For more information, call Animal Control at 575-439-4330.
If you feel the bite is serious, seek medical attention immediately. Whether you go to a doctor’s office or the hospital emergency room, they will contact Animal Control to report the bite and an Animal Control officer will be dispatched immediately. If you do not seek medical attention you may call Animal Control at 575-439-4330 and an Officer will be dispatched.
The Officer will locate the animal and verify whether it has a current rabies vaccination. If the animal does not have current vaccinations it will be impounded and quarantined for 10 days. You will be informed if anything out of the ordinary is observed during the quarantine period. You will also be contacted by an Officer approximately 10 days after the bite during a follow up to ensure that you are recovering satisfactorily.
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.
Your first step would be to go to Animal Control and identify your pet. After this is done, you will need proof of current rabies vaccination and city license. If your pet is not current on these, you will have to purchase these from Animal Control. If your pet has not been spayed or neutered, you will also have to pay for this procedure to be done, unless your pet is registered by a recognized organization such as the American Kennel Club, United Kennel Club, etc.

Most newspapers and radio stations offer free advertisements for pet giveaway. Local supermarkets have bulletin boards and allow pet owners to place flyers on these.
Animal Control also has two bulletin boards. One is located inside the building and the other is located outside on the Southern wall.
