Officials with the Department of Animal Services and the El Paso Fire Department announced Tuesday that the 2018 edition of the “Firefighters and Furry Friends” calendar has arrived and is now on sale.
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 North Stanton (2nd floor).
The Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar is just $10 and includes an adoption voucher inside for a free pet adoption. The calendar and voucher are a perfect alternative for anyone thinking of adopting and gifting a pet as a holiday gift.
The goal of the Firefighters and Furry Friends calendar is to create awareness for the thousands of animals that come into the Animal Services Shelter each year that are in need of a loving forever home. This is the second year the departments have teamed up for this joint project, with the previous calendar selling out.
Though more calendars are being printed for this 2018 edition, these calendars are also expected to sell out quickly. Proceeds from the calendar will help Animal Services provide more reduced-fee adoption events throughout the year.
The calendar was made possible through a partnership between the Department of 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.
