EPFD, Animal Services reveal 2020 Firefighters and Furry Friends Calendar

On Friday, the El Paso Fire Department and El Paso Animal Services announced the arrival of the 2020 edition of the “Firefighters and Furry Friends” calendar.

The community can purchase their copies of this joint-department calendar at the Animal Services Shelter located at 5001 Fred Wilson, or at the Fire Department Headquarters located at 416 N. Stanton (2nd floor).

The Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar is just $10 and includes two free pet adoption vouchers, along with a pet fire-safety sign for the window of the purchaser’s home.

The project began in 2016 as a collaboration between El Paso Animal Services, the El Paso Fire Department, the International Association of Fire Fighters-Local 51, the City Manager’s Office and the Snaps for Shelters organization.

This is now the fourth year the departments have created the Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar, which helps raise awareness for the thousands of homeless animals that come into Animal Services each year.

Proceeds of the calendar will support El Paso Animal Services’ efforts to continue offering low-cost adoptions and services.
