Emergency Contacts

For Animal-Related Emergencies

 Say it's 8 PM on a Sunday night and you see a dog that is injured and needs immediate attention, and you yourself are unable to contain the dog.  


If you are in Hobbs, after 12 noon on Saturday, any time on Sundays or Mondays, and after 5 PM from Tuesday through Friday,  you may do the following:

Call the Hobbs Animal Adoption Center at 575.397.9323 and you will get a message directing you to call the Lea County Communication Authority at 575.397.9265.

The same process applies for emergencies in Lovington:

Lovington Police Department: 575.396.2811
