The Department of Animal Services and the El Paso Fire Department have come together to bring you a unique calendar that pairs loveable shelter pets with the brave men and women of EPFD.
The “Firefighters and Furry Friends” calendar is on sale now at the Animal Services Shelter located at 5001 Fred Wilson Avenue, and is only $15. The calendar also includes a special voucher for a free pet adoption at Animal Services.
The calendar was made possible through a partnership between the City of El Paso Public Affairs Office, Department of Animal Services, the El Paso Fire Department, the International Association of Fire Fighters-Local 51, the City Manager’s Office and the Snaps for Shelters organization.
City Manager and the Mayor and City Council thought this was a unique way to get the community excited about adoption, and our partners were thrilled to make the calendar happen.
The goal of the Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar is to create awareness for the thousands of homeless pets that come into the Animal Services Shelter each year that are in need of a loving forever home.
To view a sample of the calendar, visit Animal Services’ Facebook page, just search for “El Paso Animal Services.” The Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar is available on a first come, first serve basis.
Proceeds from the calendar will help Animal Services with reduced fee adoption events throughout the year.
