EPCSO’s PAWS Canine Cadets to Attend 17th Annual El Paso Home & Garden Show

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Pets Advancing Wellness and Success (PAWS) in Detention section in partnership with the Animal Rescue League of El Paso will be at the 17th Annual El Paso Home & Garden Show.

Detention Officers along with canine cadets will showcase the function and purpose of the PAWS vocational program to the public.

The program was created to assist inmates in attaining vocational training and to provide homeless pets an opportunity to be adopted. The canine cadets that are part of the PAWS vocational program can be adopted through the Animal Rescue League of El Paso.

In early 2014, Sheriff Richard Wiles, in collaboration with Animal Rescue, started a vocational program which helps dogs find their forever homes. However, the program, does more than help the dogs, it also helps the inmates involved in the program. PAWS, is one of those programs with lofty aims.
