Phones ringing, keyboards clicking and donations flowing. Organizers hope the 24th Annual Mission Chevrolet Humane Society's annual telethon showcases the generosity of people in the borderland and beyond.
Saturday, dozens of volunteers from the Humane Society joined forces with ABC-7 to raise funds to help sustain the city's only no-kill shelter. The El Paso Humane Society does not receive any local, state or federal funding, so the annual telethon is its largest fundraiser.
The mission of the Humane Society of El Paso is to provide a compassionate and healthful environment for animals placed in their care. The Humane Society of El Paso also focuses on responsible adoption by placing animals in loving and caring homes.
The shelter takes in around 3,600 animals every year -- caring for nearly 175 animals daily.
The Humane Society of El Paso is a non-profit agency that does not receive any local, state, or federal tax dollars.
HSEP relies on fundraising events, adoption fees, grants, and donations, and Saturday, El Pasoans' generosity was in full display as the $150,000 goal set by the shelter was surpassed by thousands of dollars.
All funds raised by HSEP stay in El Paso and directly benefit animals in its care.
