The more than 50 animals rescued from a home in East El Paso on July 23, 2013 are now available for adoption by the public. The City of El Paso Animal Shelter has completed its evaluation of the 54 dogs and one cat.
The evaluation revealed that one the dogs had a previous owner, who is not related to the hoarding case. The dog has since been reunited with its original owner.
The remaining animals are currently housed at the shelter, 5001 Fred Wilson, and at the Humane Society of El Paso, located next door to the city's shelter. Adoption fees for animals at the shelter or the Humane Society are $60. The adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, microchip and registration.
To adopt an animal, visit the shelter. The shelter is open: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
For more information, call (915) 842-1000.
