You're looking for a gift idea for the animal lovers on your list and there are lots of animals looking for homes, sooo........

This may not be a good idea for everybody on your Christmas list but, for those who love animals and have the ability to care for them, it's shopping made simple!  The El Paso Humane Society is loaded with beautiful animals that really need a forever home.  Ditto for the El Paso Animal Services facility.

El Paso Animal Services typically charges $30 for adoptions which covers spay/neuter surgery, microchip with national registration, local registration and age - appropriate vaccinations.  Beyond cats and dogs, they also often have other animals such as rabbits, birds, snakes, hamsters, guinea pigs, and ferrets.

For more information and to find out how much the fees are for the more "exotic" animals, please call (915) 212 - PAWS.  Or, you can visit their website and/or their Facebook page.
