She's as cute as her name! Crumpet is a favorite around here. Our staff will purposely go out of their way to visit her in her kennel. Crumpet is so well known because can you believe this long-legged beauty has been with us Christmas Eve 2020. She's playful, she's sweet and she'd be a perfect addition to your family!

This is the last week you can help us CLEAR THE SHELTERS! Adoption fees are waived through September 19, and all adoptions include the pet's spay/neuter, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and city license.

Are you a kitnapper? Leave those kittens alone! Just because you don't see momma cat around, doesn't mean she's abandoned her babies! Mom is typically nearby hunting or hiding from humans.

Sherman's Tricks

It's so fun getting to know the pets that come into our care! We discovered that Sherman knew how to 'sit,' but we also discovered he also knew how to 'shake'!

Sherman is as sharp as a tack and as smart as can be! This boy knows all the tricks; sit, shake and is happy to wait patiently for his treat. He’s easy going and loves the great outdoors—Sherman would love to be your hiking or camping buddy!

Visit us to find your new best friend! Adoption fees are FREE through September 19 with Clear the Shelters! We are open daily from 11 am to 6 pm, no appointment necessary.

Daria has had some crummy luck, and for a pup as amazing as her, it sure is disappointing! She's about to reach 1 year at the shelter—but it's not like no one has noticed her. She's actually been in three homes since then, but none of them stuck at no fault of her own. Just wasn't the right fit, but we know her perfect match is out there! Because Daria is truly a hidden gem, a staff and volunteer favorite!

Daria would love to be your new best friend! This sweet, curvy, vivacious gal loves to be everywhere you are. She’s perfectly happy following you around all day and spending as much time with you as she can! Just give her a bed and a window and she'll be your best co-worker and power napper! Her favorite thing to do is to roll around in the grass and sunbathe, which makes her a true El Pasoan. From her fosters we've even hear she does great in a home, has been with other dogs and kids.

This week, City Council approved the Certificates of Obligation that will allow us to continue to construct an additional building that will house a medical quarantine space as well as additional large dog housing areas, which will help us save more lives!

Our current shelter was built in the early 2000s, and not as a lifesaving facility. Back then pets really only had 3-6 days before they were euthanized, so space was not a priority during shelter construction. As many of you know, we don't have the medical facility or quarantining areas to treat pets that need additional medical care, and with our limited space, we are unable to save those lives. This addition will allow us to quarantine and treat pets with contagious diseases, as well as provide more livable space for the healthy pets in our care so they don't have to share a kennel with 2, 3 or 4 more pets.

The approval of the CO's is just the first step, so we will continue to provide you with updates as construction begins!

Meet Logan

Meet Logan, who has been with us since April. Logan is a certified good boy, but like any new relationship, he prefers to take things slow. Something to sweeten the pot for this cutie? Just a little Cheese Wiz! Shelter life has made Logan a little down in the dumps, but as soon as a volunteer or staff member takes him out of his kennel, he springs into life and is full of butt wiggles and smiles. We know once this calm boy finds a home, he sure will shine into a loving pup!

Come meet Logan and his friends! All adoptions are FREE through September 19 with our Clear the Shelters adoption promotion. Our doors are open 11 am to 6 pm daily.

Hollywood

It's #NationalDogDay! We're spending it giving Hollywood all the belly rubs and telling him what a good boy he is. How are you spending it with your pets at home?

Hollywood is fit for the comfy life. How do we know? Because as soon as he sees any person coming up to him, he’s quick to flop on his back and offer up his belly for some intense belly rubs. Nothing gets his back leg kickin’ more! Give this blocky headed baby the home he deserves. 💜 It's Clear the Shelters and adoption fees are waived through September 19!

UPDATE! Moose is in a foster home! Thank you for sharing and helping us find him an urgent placement. If you still want to help, ask us about our other at-risk pets.

Help Moose find a home ASAP!

Moose will be hitting 1 year at the shelter in just a few days. All that time he's spent at the shelter being over looked—no potential adopter, not even a temporary foster home. But it hasn't been until recently that this sweet, happy-go-lucky boy is really feeling the shelter stress. He's been mentally declining really rapidly just over the last few weeks, and now he's beginning to injure himself from kennel stress. Moose NEEDS OUT, fast! Please share and help Moose find a foster or forever home.

#1stpicchallenge This is Blanche DeBarko. We adopted her in 2019. I love my "old lady". She was such a happy dirty mess in her first picture and now she is a happy, healthy, funny lady. She has her own "room" her crate with her beds and the doors are always open so she can come and go however she feels. I cant explain how much I love her and I am so thrilled everyday that she is part of our family.
Our family has been looking for Boomer in the Horizon City area. He’s been missing since Friday, 1/29/2021 Please if you see him, contact me at 915-491-7732 Please, we’re broken-hearted and missing him so much!

I'd like to talk about adopting a pet. I tried calling, but couldn't reach anybody. You can send me a Facebook message.
Found dog at Vista Del Sol & Paseo Grande. Microchipped. I contacted the microchip company. Per their records, her name is Lucy, Microchipped in 2019 from El Paso Animal Services, 2ish years old. I also contacted Animal Services, her microchip zip is 79905, not sure if thats current or not. Neither has been able to get a hold of her owner. I cannot keep her, she has jumped my wall twice now so I have her on a leash. Animal Services is picking her up today. If she is yours, contact Animal Services.
