Animal rescue operation near Roswell drops permit request

An animal rescue group has withdrawn a request for a special use permit from Chaves County.

From Forgotten to Forever wanted to run an animal rescue operation north of Roswell so that it could quarantine dogs infected with distemper.

However, a neighbor complained to the sheriff’s office that the operation caused traffic problems and excessive barking.

The property on West Gallina Road at one time had 14 rescued dogs on it.

The owners had 11 dogs of their own on it, too.

Carolyn Drakulich from the group tells the Roswell Daily Record that it no longer needed the operation because most of the dogs had recovered.
