Animal Services to “Clear the Shelters” this Saturday with Free Pet Adoptions

El Paso Animal Services will again take part in the national “Clear the Shelters” adoption campaign on Saturday, August 17, 2019.

During this event, Animal Services will provide free pet adoptions for all of its shelter pets.

“The department is committed to saving as many lives as possible this year by extending its adoption hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to allow adopters enough time to take part in this popular adoption event,” officials said via a news release.

Officials share that last year’s “Clear the Shelters” event spurred over 270 adoptions, and this year, El Paso Animal Services hopes to find 300 or more forever homes.

This year’s event will also feature food trucks and pet-related vendors. In addition, free adoption goodie bags will be given to the first 50 families that adopt, courtesy of Hill’s Pet Nutrition.

Though adoptions will be free, donations of blankets, food, and kennels are welcomed. The public is encouraged to come early to the event as our shelter pets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

WHO:             El Paso Animal Services

WHEN:          Saturday, August 17, 2019   |   11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

WHERE:        El Paso Animal Services Center   |   5001 Fred Wilson Ave.

Animal Services “Home for the Pawlidays” Adoptions Starts Friday

On Thursday, officials with the El Paso Animal Services unveiled their “Home for the Pawlidays” adoption event.

Animal Services will be offering free adoptions on all of their shelter pets during this two-week special.

While adoption specials are offered year-round, Animal Services wants to remind the community, especially during the holidays, that adopting a pet is a life-long decision.

The department encourages those interested in adding a new member to the family, to visiting the shelter and adopt a pet together rather than gifting your family member an unexpected pet for the holidays.

The “Home for the Pawlidays” adoption special begins on Friday, December 7, and runs through Sunday, December 23. Shelter pets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Though fees will be waived, donations of blankets and wire crates are always welcomed.

All adoptions will include the animal’s spay/neuter procedure, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip and city license.

WHO:          El Paso Animal Services

WHAT:        “Home for the Pawlidays” adoption event featuring free adoptions

WHEN:        Friday, December 7 through Sunday, December 23

Animal Services Pets to Take First-Ever “Rescue Flight”

Early Friday morning, more than 70 shelter pets from El Paso Animal Services will take to the skies as part of the department’s first-ever, large-scale transport flight.

These animals will be flown to new cities that are in need of lovable shelter pets. This transport flight comes at a crucial time as the shelter begins its peak intake season.

This life-saving event is made possible through a collaboration of partners to include: Wings of Rescue, GreaterGood.org, Freekibble, Humane Society of Tulsa, Humane Society of the United States, and Sierra West Airlines.

If members of the community would like to donate to Wings of Rescue to help fund this El Paso flight and others, they can do so online.
