There's a problem of lost & stray animals in El Paso, Texas; that's why many amazing people have started organizations to help get rid of these problems & give lost animals a good home. I love animals but I also know I don't have room of EVERY single dog or cat out there. Thankfully there are many places that you can find online that want to help find sheltered dogs & cats to loving families.
