El Paso Animal Services, in collaboration with Friends of El Paso Animal Services, is excited to announce an upcoming Puppy Shower from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Old Sheepdog Brewery, 3900 Rosa Ave.

The family-friendly event aims to invite and prepare the community for fostering the abundance of puppies and kittens in need.

“Fosters are desperately needed to help us care for the thousands of puppies and kittens that enter our shelter every year,” said Terry Kebschull, Director of El Paso Animal Services. “Our goal is not only to provide temporary homes for these young animals but also to support and prepare foster families for the rewarding experience of raising them.”

The event will feature hands-on activities and presentations on puppy training, bottle feeding, and fostering. Additionally, attendees can enjoy food and drinks, including a special brew from Old Sheepdog Brewery featuring a shelter pup on the drink can, with proceeds benefiting the Friends of El Paso Animal Services nonprofit. The event will also offer free pet microchips, discounted pet vaccines, and on-site adoption and fostering opportunities.

Friends of El Paso Animal Services will be accepting much-needed donations such as puppy or kitten food and formula, training pads, blankets, and other items needed to support lifesaving programs. These contributions are essential in maintaining the health and well-being of foster pets.
