EL PASO, Texas - In an effort to achieve its “no-kill” goal, El Paso Animal Services is establishing new lifesaving procedures to prepare for the busy spring and summer months.
Not killing animals overcrowds the shelter -- which is why it's asking for your help. Fortunately, there are many ways to give hand.
For example, Animal Services is offering free pet adoptions on Saturday. All adoptions include the pet's spay and neuter procedure, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and city license.
Officials said fostering is a great option for those who can't commit to giving a pet a forever home. Fostering a pet will free up space for other incoming pets at the shelter, and will also give Animal Services the opportunity to transfer more animals to other rescues and shelters.
If you don’t have space for a new friend at home, another way to support the shelter is to donate to its various programs and initiatives.
El Paso Animal Services is located at 5001 Fred Wilson Ave.
