A raffle will be held for those who raised $60 or more to win a HSEP prize bag. Other contests include “Largest Team” and “Most Spirited Team”.

El Paso’s Inaugural Animal Advocacy Day is February 24

The El Paso Animal Collaborative, an initiative of the El Paso Community Foundation, is partnering with the Texas Humane Legislative Network (THLN) to host the first El Paso Animal Advocacy Day this weekend.

Organizers say the event will run from 1- 4 p.m. Sunday, February 24 in the El Paso Community Foundation Room, located at 333 North Oregon Street.

State Representative Joe Moody will share insights on how citizen advocates can best coalesce their voices for animals. Moody, the first Speaker pro tem from El Paso, has been endorsed by THLN.

Via a news release, officials shared that the public can “Learn what animal protection issues are at stake in the 2019 legislative session and how you can get political for animals. Exciting legislation has already been filed to advance the humane treatment of animals this session – critical protections for tied-out dogs, banning the predatory practice of “pet leasing,” enabling the adoption of retired research animals, to allowing good Samaritans to free dogs in hot cars.”

Laura Donahue Halloran, Executive Director for Texas Humane Legislative Network, will break down the critical elements of these bills and explain how to help both spread the word and make change in Austin.

This event is free and open to the public, however organizers are asking potential attendees to RSVP so they can ensure seats for all.

The El Paso Animal Collaborative was formed in 2018 by the El Paso Community Foundation. The group, which meets quarterly, addresses the issues faced by the animal community in our region.

Participating organizations include: Animal Rescue League of El Paso, Animal Shelter Advisory Committee (ASAC), Cat Rescue Corporation, El Paso Animal Services Shelter, El Paso County Sheriff Animal Control Unit, El Paso Veterinary Medical Association, El Paso Zoo, Enchanted Pass Animal Rescue, From The Heart Rescue, Horses Unlimited Rescue and Education Center Inc., Humane Society of El Paso, Paws for Love, Second Chance Wildlife Rescue, Stick House Sanctuary, Sun City Cats, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Therapy Dogs International.
