The Humane Society of El Paso is a non-profit organization. The HSEP receives no financial support from the municipal, county, state or federal governmental agencies, nor are we affiliated with any national organizations.

We at the HSEP are able to do our work because of generous donations from individuals like you, local business support, grants and bequests. If it were not for you, the Humane Society of El Paso would not exist.

HSEP: Where does your donation go? 79% our programs, 8% Administrative, 13% Fundraising

Where does your donation go?

Your donations provide quality care and a safe, healthy, temporary shelter for thousands of animals every year. Donations also provide public education regarding responsible pet ownership, low cost humane euthanasia services and HSEP has the only pet crematorium in the city. Administrative costs go toward having the proper leadership and employees to run the shelter. HSEP fundraising costs help the shelter put on the annual events which, in turn, raise money to support animal health and welfare programs! For more information, download our 2015 Annual Report.
