Animal Services: More foster homes for pets needed as colder weather arrives

El Paso Animal Services is preparing for the colder temperatures expected in the coming weeks by asking the community to open their hearts and homes to a great shelter pet.

Currently more than 100 large dogs are housed in outdoor play runs. With a limited number of large animal housing areas located inside the Animal Services Center, the department is hoping to place many of its large dogs in foster homes or in a new forever home.

Animal Services’ Foster Program is completely free and foster families are provided all the food, supplies, and medical care needed. All a foster family provides is a temporary loving home for a pet, or pets, in need.

Those interested in becoming a foster can come to the shelter seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to speak with foster team members.

For those interested in adding a member to their family permanently, adoption fees have also been waived for all dogs over 30 lbs. All adoptions will include the pet’s spay/neuter procedure, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and city license.

For more information on all the services and programs provided by El Paso Animal Services, visit in person at 5001 Fred Wilson Avenue, or visit their website.
