The Humane Society of El Paso is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities to bring adoptable pets to PetSmart located in the Fountains of Farah in support of National Adoption Week, taking place July 11 – 17, 2022.
National Adoption Week coincides with kitten season. It’s a time following peak breeding activity for cats, and many shelters are flooded with scores of kittens in need of loving homes. Many shelters invite volunteers to come and bottle-feed kittens to learn about the joys of parenting cats.
During the in-store event, The Humane Society of El Paso invites potential pet parents to meet adoptable pets in their area. Opportunities will be given to spend time with animals in need of loving homes in a spacious area. Staff and volunteers will help potential adopters learn about caring for a pet and the types of tools, products and services they may need.
“We are proud to partner with PetSmart Charities and the PetSmart Fountains location to help our animal residents find their forever homes,” shared Lupe Diaz, Community Relations Coordinator for the Humane Society of El Paso. “By hosting large adoption events like National Adoption Week, they help our facility bring our animals out into the community to get exposure to potential adopters that may not head out to our facility.”
Adoption fees for puppies are $210, while fees for dogs 16 weeks and older are $140, plus $12.50 for city license and registration. Adoption fees for kittens are $110, and $100 for cats 16 weeks and older, plus $12.50 for city license and registration.
The adoption fee covers spay/neuter procedures, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip implant and registration, deworming, heartworm testing for dogs, and feline leukemia and AIDS testing for cats.

“National Adoption Week is an ideal opportunity to give a pet what they need most – people to love,” said Heidi Fulcher, Adoptions Grant Manager at PetSmart Charities. “Over the years, together with local partners such as The Humane Society of El Paso we’ve matched more than 10 million pets with loving homes. Globally, people say their pets are important family members that enhance their lives, too. That’s a win-win!”
