Save the dogs being killed by Mayor's order: investigate the Mayor & remove him from office
This petition had 5,105 supporters
The other day, unfortunately, the Mayor has announced they will be euthanizing all animals currently at animal control and that they have banned ALL NEW MEXICO SHELTERS AND RESCUES from pulling animals from their facility. Due to the shelter being closed all weekend and the deicision to kill all the innocent dogs on Monday morning, this decision means a definite death sentence to all of these animals.
Per an Examiner Article "Meanwhile many animal advocates and residents of Roswell are outraged at the Mayor's blanket decision to essentially sign the death sentences for innocent dogs. The shelter is closed on the weekends... how can an out-of-state rescue or anyone wanting to adopt the dogs even get in touch with shelter employees before Monday to save the nine dogs now marked as "Code Red"?"

Update: The Mayor has granted us a stay of execution giving us until Wednesday; however, all of these dogs need to be saved. It is unfair to punish all the dogs for the action of just a couple.
Newest update (Monday 4:12pm) The shelter went ahead and killed 5 dogs today.
We are pleading that the Mayor and City Council either (1) IMMEDIATELY ALLOW STATE AND LOCAL RESCUES TO PULL DOGS or (2) PUT A HOLD ON ALL EUTHANASIA AND INTAKES UNTIL HIS INVESTIGATION OF ANIMAL CONTROL IS COMPLETE.
We are now also asking the the Mayor and any other decision-makers in this case be invvestigated for their actions and decisions to kill all of the dogs, simply because many came from the same home. We would like to see the Mayor removed from office.
There is absolutely no reason to kill innocent dogs and the decision to do this in itself is cruel and should be considered animal cruelty in of itself. Please sign this petition begging lawmakers to reconsider and help save these innocent dogs who had no part in the attack.
