El Paso Animal Services had to move dogs to a separate location during overnight freeze

El Paso News

The El Paso Animal Services is trying to keep pets warm during with the cold temperatures.

They did not have enough kennels indoors at their main location at 5001 Fred Wilson Ave  in Northeast El Paso. So they moved dogs to an impromptu shelter at 3800 Sunrise Ave. 

They are asking for the communities help to try and get these dogs adopted. Another factor is that they have had more pets to house after the holidays.

“New Year’s Eve happened and there we’re a lot of fireworks and a lot of dogs ran off scared, we have had a high influx at the shelter so we are asking people that if you lost your pet, come by the shelter and look for your pet,” said El Paso Animal Services Director Paula Powell.

But if your not ready to adopted a pet yourself there’s still ways you can help out. They are always looking for people to foster pets short term. And if you cant take one home you can always bring donations. 

“I’m a dog lover and so i just feel bad for them and I hope that everyone can be compassionate and bring something out.” Rhonda Hudek a woman from El Paso who brought blankets to the impromptu shelter on Sunrise, to help keep the dogs warm. 

Rhonda wasn’t able to take home a dog but she urges people to help out in anyway they can whether is adopting, fostering or donating. S o, TX 79906 (915) 212-PAWS | 5001 Fred Wilson Ave. El Paso, TX 79906
