Like thousands of El Paso pets, the Chihuahua was wondering the streets and found without any I.D or a microchip. She was turned into Animal Services in hopes of finding her owner or owners but was never reclaimed. The Chihuahua was moved into the V.I.P (Virtually Irresistible Pets) section at the city shelter which allows some animals more time to be adopted prior to being euthanized. Five days after entering the shelter she was spotted by Flores.

Adopt A Pet From El Paso Animal Services Shelter For $30
Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in El Paso – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.Meanwhile, in an effort to decrease the number of animals in shelters the El Paso Animal Services implement the equation, which includes that every pet put up for adoption is sprayed and neutered before anyone can take them home.You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a El Paso pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in El Paso is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a El Paso animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.The City of El Paso Animal Services Shelter is holding a pet adoption special this weekend only to celebrate. For only $30, you can adopt a pet from the shelter.I think its wrong that more animals pets are being killed cause owners don’t want them anymore or they can’t find others to adopt them it is sad but I am glad that one of the older shelters in El Paso are adapting the no kill policy I adopted my cat a few months a go from Petco cause I felt like he deserved a great home with ppl who will love him and take care of him the best they canIn El Paso alone, tens of thousands of animals find themselves in shelters every single year; for many, adoption is the only chance they have to live hap-paw-ly ever after. Lucky pets are adopted every single day, but Adopt a Shelter Pet Day is a big chance to raise awareness about the importance of adopting, and actually get animals adopted.
