The Humane Society of El Paso and the Animal Services shelter are overcrowded and at maximum capacity putting  healthy, adoptable animals are at risk.  You can adopt a pet for half price, just $50, until June 17th.  The fee includes spay/nueter, rabies vaccination, registration, and age-appropriate vaccinations required by the city.

Adoptions can be made at the Humane Society (5001 Fred Wilson, 11 am to 5:30 pm M-Sat, Sunday 11 am to 4:30 pm) and the city shelter (4991 Fred Wilson, 10:30 am to 6 pm M-Sat).
Rescue animals make great pets.  I have three, and wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.  They seem to know they have been saved, and are ever so greatful and loving.
