DIMCP Rescue Flight 6-1-2021

Yesterday, over 40 pups headed off to our rescue partners in Utah, Colorado and Wyoming to find their forever homes thanks to another lifesaving rescue flight from Dog Is My CoPilot, Inc.! Many of those pups were long-stay residents, who will quickly find loving homes up north. 💜

Rescue flights like these are so important—not only to the pets on board getting a second chance, but also to the pets that enter the shelter every day. 40 pets heading out on a flight might seem like a lot, but those empty kennels they left filled up the same day and then some—during summer months, we average 50-100 pets coming into our care every day. Help us help more pets, and sign up to be a Flight Attendant Foster for a rescue flight pet ➡️ www.elpasoanimalservices.org/foster

Thank you to Black Dog Animal Rescue, Casper Humane Society, Humane Society of Utah and Foothills Humane Society for being our partners in lifesaving!

Meet Oliver

Oliver loves attention, and he deserves all of it. This sweet boy is quick to curl up by your side and soak up the belly rubs and neck scratches. Being at the shelter has made Ollie a little shy at first, but after just 5 minutes outside, he shakes off his stress and comes right out of his shell!

Looking to add a sweet boy like Oliver to your family? Come meet him at the shelter! Walk-up Adoptions (no appointment necessary) available Tuesdays through Saturdays from 1-4 pm!

In observance of the Memorial Day holiday, we'll be open for curbside appointments from 11 am - 2 pm today. We will resume normal business hours tomorrow, June 1.

While you're celebrating today, don't forget to keep your pets safe. Here are some tips to make it a safe holiday for you and your pets:
🐾 Make sure your pets are wearing their collar and tags in case they get lost
🐾 Place pets in a safe room away from stressful guests, and give them a fun toy or treat to keep them busy
🐾 Make sure doors and gates are kept closed, so your pet can't run out
🐾 Keep human food away from pets—you don't want to make an emergency trip to the vet!

#RescueMonth

CALLING ALL OLD-DOG LOVERS!!!

Larry is looking for YOU!

He's a chill, calm, cuiet, cuddly guy (we couldn't ruin the alliteration there with 'quiet'). His idea of the perfect day is to just snooze on the couch with you.

We don't know how old he is because he refuses to tell us, but we expect he's about 10-12 years old. As you can see, he looks amazeballs in tanks.

Special care he requires:

💖 Lots of kisses
💖 You must tell him how great he is at least once a day
💖 Requires a fashionable wardrobe
💖 New owner must have at least one couch

If you think you might be the right family for this cool guy, send us a message!! 🥰

Meet our #FosterFriday Feature, Penny! She spent four months at the shelter before going into foster, and has really taken to the luxury of soft beds, infinite squeaky toys and snuggles from her foster family. Her foster family says she's a very sweet, smart girl who is spayed, housebroken, crate trained and would make a good family dog!

Penny looooooves her evening walks, belly rubs, sunbathing, and giving kisses. She likes to "talk" and has a lot to say (we're working on karaoke, but she can't carry a tune).

She is a bit nervous and takes some time to adapt to change, but once she does she settles in nicely. She's playful but not destructive, energetic but not rough, can be a bit of a couch potato, and will ensure no pizza crusts go uneaten.

Think Penny is your perfect match? Reach out to our Foster team at [email protected] to set up a time to meet her.

If you come across a litter of kittens, resist the urge to pick them up! While it may seem like kittens are orphaned, it's actually very rare for momma cats to abandon their kittens. Momma cats will often leave their kittens to search for food or to scout out safer locations, and will come back to check on her babies periodically. A kitten's best chance at survival is with their mom, so don't kitnap them!

We are celebrating and highlighting our rescue partners this month! We couldn't save lives without the help and support from our local and national rescue partners. Enchanted Pass is a great local rescue that helps pets find loving homes, but also helps keep pets with their families.

After a mobile home fire in Chaparral caused numerous families to lose their homes and items, Enchanted Pass Animal Rescue stepped in to help make sure they have what they need. We were happy to share some of our resources to help our partners at Enchanted Pass in their efforts to keep pets with the families that love them. Thank you to our partners for being such a great resource for our community!

Chihuahua Rescue

Over six weeks ago, we took in almost 100 Chihuahuas from and overwhelmed family. While some were able to find foster or rescue, many had some challenges that needed specialized care. But last week, our shelter advisor Faith Wright from American Pets Alive! was able to connect us with a new rescue partner in Ohio that can help these pups get the care and attention they need! This morning, we loaded up over 50 pups and they began their journey to Humane Association of Warren County where they have fosters and animal care staff waiting to help them.

Thank you APA! and Humane Association of Warren County for helping us save lives! We couldn't do it without our rescue partners both local and nationwide.

#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.
