Even though some non-essential businesses have been allowed to re-open, many restrictions remain in place based upon state and local health orders. To comply with the City of El Paso’s Stay Home, Work Safe order, the Humane Society of El Paso (HSEP) continues to be closed to the public. However, while our front doors may be closed, we continue to care for nearly 200 dogs and cats at the Shelter, and 144 puppies and kittens currently living with our volunteer foster families.
HSEP has canceled several major fundraisers and numerous community events. We have also suspended a number of our programs. We’re asking you, our supporters, to make a donation that will allow HSEP to continue our life-saving work.
HSEP has temporarily suspended all adoptions. Per the Stay Home, Work Safe order, people who are not employees or required for the care of the facility and/or shelter animals are not allowed on the premises. Our reopen date is based on the Stay Home, Work Safe directive. To be ready, our staff is currently developing a new adoption process which will be followed once we are able to reopen.
We are now offering limited End of Life services Monday - Friday by appointment only. To make an appointment for euthanasia or cremation, please call 915-532-6971 ext. 107, Monday - Friday between 11:00 AM and 4:30 PM.
HSEP has temporarily suspended all volunteer activity on site to keep our staff safe. Please stay tuned to our website and social media channels for when we will re-open for volunteers and new volunteer orientations. There is not currently a timeline on when volunteering will resume.
In line with national and state guidelines, the Humane Society of El Paso has temporarily suspended our TNR project for community cats.

We want to make sure you and your family are as prepared as possible should illness strike your family. Please remember to include your pets in the planning to ensure they have a safe place to go should they need it.
