Help save a life with the El Paso Humane Society telethon

EL PASO, Texas --Every year, the Humane Society of El Paso telethon helps shelter pets find their forever homes.

Recently retired KVIA General Manager Kevin Lovel was key in saving one dog's life!   

"This dog was loose, stray," said Lovell.

The dog followed him home, and he pleaded with our viewers to help find "Sweet Boy" a good home.

The happy ending? Sweet Boy found his forever home. About 670,000 dogs are euthanized in the U.S. annually, so if you go through a shelter like the Humane Society of El Paso, you can save a life.  

Kevin's Daughter, Sabine, now a doctor, learned compassion from her dad for our four-legged friends at a young age. She's donated faithfully every year since she was a little girl - even giving all her birthday money one year. Although she no longer lives in El Paso, she still donates, even giving some of her wedding gift money.

The Lovells' dogs are so much a part of the family that they make the annual Christmas card.

This latest one features Rory, adopted from the Humane Society after Kevin saw her picture online.

The annual Humane Society Telethon is this Saturday, August 6, starting at 4 p.m., only on ABC 7.
