Yard Sale to benefit animal welfare group


Shoppers scoured through thousands of donated items and purchased truckloads of merchandise Saturday during a large-scale yard sale to benefit animal welfare organizations in Las Cruces.

The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley (ASCMV) and Animal Welfare and Responsibility Education (AWARE) collaborated to host the sale, proceeds from which will support shelter operations and animal care for canines and felines awaiting adoption.

"This sale and the support of the community allows us to provide that care for animals waiting to find forever homes."
