Love Stories

As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’d like to thank everyone who helps us in our work to connect shelter dogs and cats with loving homes! Everyday, our wonderful Adoption Counselors play “match maker”, and, we are thrilled when a dog or cat finds the perfect someone they’d been waiting for!

All of us have our favorite love stories of former shelter pets and their adopters.  We’d like to invite you to share your story about how your rescue pet impacted your life:  How has your fuzzy Valentine made you laugh, kept you warm, served as an alarm clock, or warned you of potential danger (i.e., that squirrel outside the window)? How has your four-legged sweetheart pulled at your heartstrings or taught you about unconditional love?

We are collecting these special stories of animal companions who fill our live with love to share on our website and during our Telethon in August. If you’d like to share yours, please send it to Deb Benedict at dbenedict@hselpaso.org or to Samantha Cortez at scortez@hselpaso.org

Wishing you a purrrrrfect week and lots of puppy love!
