Found Animals

If you have found an animal, please submit a "Found Animal Report" by calling 311. Take the animal to any El Paso fire station, veterinarian, or emergency animal hospital to have the pet scanned for a microchip.

  • Post the pet as found on sites like Nextdoor or local Lost and Found Pet pages on Facebook.
  • Hang flyers where the pet was found, as most pets are found less than a mile or two from their home.
  • Visit for additional tips and a list of local rescue groups.

Animal Protection Officers will only respond to high-priority calls. This includes EPPD/EPFD assistance calls, sick and/or injured animals, cruelty, neglect, rabies, quarantine/bite investigations, traffic hazards, and aggressive animals. For any updates related to the department's closure or services, please visit
