We recently reached out to our friends at Fort Bliss MWR and Fort Bliss Volunteers in search of volunteers who can help us keep up with our dog walking, and we had a great response!

Thank you to all of our friends, partners, and volunteers who have helped us care for our animals during this busy summer season.

PUPDATE: I GOT ADOPTED!! This little one was found as a stray on 26 June. She came to us back in January and was returned to owner but she’s back again. She’s currently in foster and the owners have some time to reclaim her. She is chipped but so far the owners have not replied. If you’re interested in this girl, inquire at the adoptions office! She’s young, seems healthy, and will come to you spayed and fully vaccinated!

Fire Station Microchip Scanning

We have collaborated with the El Paso Fire Department once again to give you a more convenient way to help reunite found pets with their families!

If you find a lost pet, you can now take them to any El Paso fire station, 24/7, to get them scanned for a microchip. This will not only be more convenient for you as the finder—as fire stations are in just about every neighborhood around the city—but it will also help keep lost pets out of our already crowded shelter and help them reunite with their families faster!

To find a list of fire stations in El Paso, visit www.EPFire.org and click on the "About Us" tab.

Thanks to everyone who joined in on our little purr-quiz!

The correct answer IS leave them be and wait! A kitten's best chance at survival is with their mother. If you find a litter of kittens, it's likely that mom isn't too far away, either looking for food or got scared and looking from a safe distance.

Fostering is a great alternative to pet ownership, especially for families that are frequently on the move! To find out more about our free foster program, visit our website www.elpasoanimalservices.org/foster or just come on in to get started!

Active-duty military families stationed in the El Paso area might truly enjoy fostering a #dog or a #cat because they receive all the benefits of helping and loving pets without the stress that comes with deciding what to do with animals when it comes time to rotate to a new location here or overseas. Fostering is temporary and vital to #shelter animals, and all food and supplies, plus any necessary medical care, is paid for and provided by the shelter itself! Please consider being a foster family ❤️ #FortBliss, Texas. #foster #pets need love, too!
