Petitioning City Commission of Hobbs, NM

Pass Delila's Law - Ordinance 1024 aka Animal Law

The City of Hobbs Animal Shelter, aka "Adoption Center", has a kill rate of over 72% of animals brought into the shelter. They are not pro-active and even make it difficult for rescues and other shelters to save animals from this high kill shelter. We want to require the city and the shelter to utilize legitimate rescues and no kill shelters who are willing to rescue animals instead of euthanizing them. We need support to make this happen! Please sign our petition and share with others!


Proposal for an addition, or amendment, to this ordinance,

section 6.04.090, subtitled "Impounding Animals".

I would like to propose that the City Commission pass an 

amendment, N., stating that the City Manager, Supervisor, 

or Animal Protection Officer must refrain from euthanizing,

or humanely destroying, any animal which has a legal Refuge

group or Shelter willing to take that animal within a reasonable 

timeframe. Definitions of a Refuge group or Shelter are contained 

on page 4 of this ordinance under section 6.04.020, "Definitions".

A suggested reasonable timeframe for rescuing an animal should

be between 5-10 days, depending on distance from Hobbs.
