Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in El Paso – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.The City of El Paso Animal Services Shelter is holding a pet adoption special through December 15th. For only $30, you can adopt a pet from the shelter.You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a El Paso pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in El Paso is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a El Paso animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.The Humane Society of El Paso does its very best to unite adopters with their paw-fect match. Caring staff and volunteers will help lead adopters through the adoption process and can answer most any questions about a certain breed, animal or training. The HSEP is committed to make sure adopters not only fall in love with one of the rescues, but leave with all the knowledge and resources they need to be a great pet parent.The City of El Paso Animal Services Shelter is holding a pet adoption special this weekend only to celebrate. For only $30, you can adopt a pet from the shelter.After repeated attempts to change the pet adoption program atAnimal Services, the El Paso Health Department has succeeded inreplacing one contractor with another, but the program won’t changemuch.
