El Paso Animal Services Shelter, Humane Society Offer Half-Price Adoptions Due To Overcrowding

The City of El Paso’s Animal Services shelter and Humane Society of El Paso will have half-price adoption prices June 1-17.

The special price is due to the shelter having 500 animals and the Humane Society reaching maximum capacity, putting healthy, adoptable animals at risk, according to City officials.

In light of this situation, these organizations are reaching out to the community for immediate assistance to help adopt and find permanent homes for these shelter pets. The City’s rescue partners also are working to transfer animals from the City shelter to get them fostered or adopted.

Shelter overcrowding issues are very serious, and action during the next few weeks is imperative. Without the community’s assistance there is no other choice than for Animal Services to euthanize adoptable pets, according to City officials.

The City and the Humane Society will cut their adoption prices in half, from $100 to $50. This fee includes spay/neuter procedure required on any animal exiting the facility, rabies vaccination, registration and age-appropriate vaccinations to be in compliance with city ordinance. Pet adoptions can be made at the campus housing both the City shelter (5001 Fred Wilson) and the El Paso Humane Society (4991 Fred Wilson).

Adoption hours for Animal Services are from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Humane Society adoption hours are from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
