By the time ACTion Programs for Animals received the call about Angel the dog, the animal in question had already lost use of his hind legs.
“He basically came to us not able to really walk with his hind legs. He was skin and bones,” Insurriaga said.
That’s Nora Insurriaga, the operations manager of the animal welfare organization ACTion Programs for Animals in Las Cruces. She says Angel came to APA in a coordinated effort with the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley.
