The City of El Paso Animal Services is in urgent need of new foster homes for animals in the shelter. Find out how you can help a pup in need. The weather is getting colder and it's not just cuffing season for humans. Many dogs and cats in the Borderland are in need of forever homes and the City of El Paso Animals Services shelter has hundreds of dogs that need homes. The shelter is now asking for help from the public to open their homes and become foster homes.

The Animal Services shelter has hundreds of medium and large dogs that need foster homes and their current pool of foster homes are at capacity. They are now asking the community to open their homes temporarily to a dog in need. Fostering is free and Animal Services help by providing all the food, medical care, and supplies needed to house any foster dogs. If your home already has a dog, bring them to the shelter to see what adoptable foster dogs would fit into your family.

Fostering is a wonderful way for you to give back to your community and help save animal lives. This allows them to free up space in the shelter so they can help more dogs, and also allows them to work with rescues to get dogs transported. It also allows them to give medical care to sick or injured animals that come into Animal Services. Other ways you could help the City of El Paso Animal Services shelter include:
