Heartbroken kitties need you

Sisters Dulce and Doodle entered the Humane Society of El Paso under heartbreaking circumstances: their owners passed away. In the hope that these two sweeties find a loving home to mend their broken hearts, they were brought to the HSEP.

Serendipity strikes the shelter

Star was at the Humane Society of El Paso longer than most other dogs. She quickly became a staff and volunteer favorite due to her loving nature and playful spirit. Star loved every person that she met, but she was very choosy when it came to her canine playmates. For that reason, Star was routinely overlooked by potential adopters. To make matters worse, she is a black Pit Bull, and dogs like her statistically spend more time in shelters than most.

Help the HSEP win $100,000

Exciting news! The Petco Foundation, in partnership with Petco, will be granting Holiday Wishes in the form of more than $750,000 in grant awards to qualified animal welfare organizations. This contest is designed to help the animal welfare organizations save more lives during the holidays and year round. So, what does that mean for us? We have a chance to win $100,000, but we need your help!

Fact or False?

There are many misconceptions about shelters, shelter animals, and certain breeds. Red and his buddy Star are going to help clear up the confusion, and share which of these misconceptions are fact, and which are just false!

Pet Lover's Calendar

To prepare for 2017, which will be here before we know it, Humane Society of El Paso Calendars are now on sale! Calendars are just $10, and can be purchased at the shelter during regular business hours.

Telethon Recap

The Annual Save-a-Life Telethon was a hit yet again! This year marked the 23rd year in a row that the Telethon has been the HSEP's largest fundraiser, and many lives will be saved as a result!

Let's get real: Illness in the shelter

Let’s get real about illness in shelters! The sad fact is that it is unavoidable. The Humane Society of El Paso prides itself on maintaining a clean and healthy environment for the animals in its care, but germs and viruses always find a way of sneaking in.

Home, sweet home!

Home is where the heart is, and no home is complete unless the heart is filled with love. Elena has been a special resident of the Humane Society of El Paso for the better part of 2016. Elena came from a home that was very full, but not with love: Elena was rescued from a hoarding case in Las Cruces, where she lived in deplorable and inhumane conditions with dozens of other dogs. Elena and a male counterpart, named Damon who was adopted a few months ago, were transferred from Animal Services Center of Mesilla Valley in January. Elena was terribly under-socialized, and suffered from extreme anxiety. Elena’s mental health has been slowly improving over the past few months, but she was still missing a piece of her heart. Elena had neither a home of her very own, nor a person who was devoted to loving her.

El BugO Proceeds Exceed Expectations

El Bugo is one of the most fun and most unique events in El Paso! This year, the HSEP was chosen to be the beneficiary of the event proceeds. For the check presentation, an adoption event was help at Rudolph Volkswagen, and the donation amount was more than anyone would have thought!
