EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – In an effort to help at full capacity at the El Paso Animal Services Center, the city has reopened the Mission Valley Adoption Center.
The Mission Valley Adoption Center, located at 9068 Socorro Rd., will assist with adoptions as the main shelter remains at capacity and continues to experience high animal consumption.
The Mission Valley Adoption Center offers pet adoptions from noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
There are currently over 1,000 pets at the Animal Services shelter, with approximately 50-70 lost and stray animals entering the shelter daily. The Mission Valley Adoption Center will help reduce some housing space in the main shelter, but the department is still asking for community support to help reduce the number of animals in the care of animal services.
All pets at the center are ready to go home and their adoption fees will be waived, which includes the sterilization procedure, microchipping, age-appropriate vaccinations, and a municipal license.
The adoption center will house approximately 40 medium to large dogs, which is the largest pet population at El Paso Animal Services.
The community can help Animal Services by adopting, adopting, volunteering, donating, and ensuring that their personal pets at home are microchipped, microchipped registered and up-to-date, and their pets sterilized or sterilized and vaccinated.
