Animal Services Kicks Off “Welcome Home Your New MVP” Adoption Special

In an effort to continue finding forever homes for the hundreds of animals at the Animal Services Shelter, the Department of Animal Services is teaming up with their national network partner, Best Friends Animal Society, to bring the El Paso community another low-cost adoption event.

Throughout September, the Animal Services Shelter will host “Welcome Home Your New MVP,” a sports-themed adoption special.

The “Welcome Home Your New MVP” adoption special will feature reduced adoption fees of $25 and run from September 1 through September 30. Adoption fees will include the animal’s spay/neuter procedure, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip and City license.

Best Friends Animal Society is a national organization that operates the nation’s largest sanctuary for homeless animals and provides adoptions, spay/neuter and educational programs through partnerships in order to save all animals and end animal homelessness.

Their No More Homeless Pets® Network teams up with local shelters to actively save lives and reduce shelter deaths. The City of El Paso’s Department of Animal Services became an official network partner last month.

The efforts and services of the Animal Services Shelter support the City of El Paso’s strategic goal to nurture and promote a healthy, sustainable community. For more information, visit Animal Services at or contact us at (915) 212-PAWS.
