The City of El Paso Animal Services’ Cinco de Mayo Adoption Fiesta is back and bigger than ever!

With over 500 pets looking for their “furever” homes, Animal Services would like to invite the community to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with their furry “com-PAW-dres” on Saturday, May 6, 2023.

All adoptions will include the pet’s spay/neuter procedure, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations, and City license. The public can also bring their pets to get free pet microchips from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition to featuring hundreds of lovable pets, the fiesta will also include folklorico dancers, local vendors, food trucks, a doggy fashion show featuring adoptable shelter pets, and live performances from local bands David Orozco Y Los Precavidos and El Cobra Norteño.

El Paso Animal Services also urges the community to support the shelter by getting involved by adopting, fostering, volunteering and donating; as well as ensuring that all owned pets are up to date on their vaccinations, have a microchip and are spayed or neutered.
