Start the New Year on the Right Paw


No one wants to start the new year with an emergency trip to the vet or having to look for your lost furry friend. Keep your pets happy, healthy and safe with some tips from El Paso Animal Services!

  1. Keep them indoors—fireworks and loud noises can spook them into trying to run away.
  2. Make sure they are wearing a collar and tags to identify them easier in case they go missing. 
  3. Create a safe, quiet space for them away from guests and noises to reduce stress.
  4. Keep alcoholic drinks out of reach from your furry friends.
  5. Check your pet’s microchip to ensure your contact information is updated.

Remember, you can update your pet’s microchip for FREE on If your pet does go missing, visit our Lost Pet Resources page to file a Lost Pet Report and find more information to help reunite you with your pet. 

Have a happy and safe New Year!
