Since the beginning of the COVID Pandemic, we knew our work at the Humane Society of El Paso would be an essential resource to our community. COVID has brought on so many changes to our facility; when our doors closed to the public, a silence fell over our main building. There were no volunteers to help us with our daily functions, and there was no laughter of families leaving with a new family member. The changes were surreal, but our staff knew our furry work kids needed us more than ever!
Our team was divided into two groups to ensure that the other group could still care for our animals if one of us got ill. Even though we are working apart, our mission brings us together. Slowly things have gotten a little more familiar, some of our core volunteers have been able to return, and adoptions by appointments began. It's not our regular normal, but our team has learned to adapt and have kept our tradition of completing families four paws at a time! #TheWorkContinues
