Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, is a game in which players take turns throwing bean bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. It dates to the late 19th century, if not earlier. There is both an American Cornhole League and an American Cornhole Organization.

DACHS, founded in 1955, is Las Cruces’ oldest animal welfare organization, DACHS said on its website.

“We are volunteer-based and dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals in our region,” the website said. “We do this by working to change local rules and laws regarding animal welfare, administering programs that help get pets out of the city/county shelter and keep them with their families, promoting spay and neuter through both financial support and marketing, and educating the public about humane practices.”
