El Paso Fire Department, Animal Services team up to help reconnect lost pets

The El Paso Fire Department and El Paso Animal Services are collaborating once again to help keep pets in their home, and out of the animal shelter.

All 34 fire stations in El Paso now have the capability to assist residents who find a lost pet by scanning the animal for a microchip.

Animal Services and the Fire Department want the community to be aware of this helpful resource as the Fourth of July holiday nears, which historically marks the peak period for lost pets in the El Paso region.

Last year, more than 2,800 animals entered the Animal Services Center during the month of July.

This first-of-its-kind collaborative aims at quickly reconnecting lost pets with their owners, preventing the need to bring a lost animal to an already crowded shelter.

Animal Services provided each station with a microchip scanner, and the Fire Department trained their station personnel on how to properly scan for a chip.

With fire stations conveniently located in neighborhoods, residents now have the opportunity to easily scan a lost pet for a microchip 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In addition, residents can also scan a pet at the Safety Health Outreach Center at 5415 Trowbridge, which is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

A list of all fire station locations is below, and there is another at the EPFD website and click on the “About Us” tab.
