The regular animal shelter at 5001 Fred Wilson is currently at capacity which made the satellite office necessary.

A former community center, located in the lower valley at 9068 Socorro Road, is being used by El Paso Animal Services as a secondary animal adoption center.

It will be open from noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, and will be closed on Mondays.

All adoptions at this new facility will be free and will include the animal’s spay/neuter procedure, initial age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip and city license, according to El Paso Animal Services. - KFOXTV
