El Paso Animal Services Celebrates Summer with FREE Adoptions

It’s the Dog Days of Summer, and as temperatures rise, so does the pet population at the shelter.

The City’s El Paso Animal Services is asking the community to consider adopting a shelter pet this summer, especially as the shelter remains at critical capacity, with over 1,000 pets waiting for their forever homes. The department will have numerous opportunities for the community to meet great, lovable shelter pets over the weekend.

Families looking to adopt can visit shelter pets at the El Paso Animal Services Center located at 5001 Fred Wilson. Cats and kittens are also available for adoption at the Cats At The Zoo (CATZ) Pet Encounter and Adoption Center inside the El Paso Zoo and Botanical Gardens. El Paso Animal Services will also have dogs available for adoption at Sunland Park Mall during the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ Indoor Adoption Event.

Dozens of other local shelters and rescues will also be offering pet adoptions at the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ Indoor Adoption Event at Sunland Park Mall on Saturday, June 25 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m

All free pet adoptions include the animal’s spay/neuter procedure, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip and City license.
