Sticking to New Year’s resolutions to stay active in the coming year is tough, but you can stay committed by adopting a new pet from the City’s El Paso Animal Services Department and also help a pet in need.

Starting Monday, January 8th through Wednesday, January 31st, all adoption fees for dogs over 30 lbs. will be waived during the “Adopt an Account-a-Buddy” adoption event.

Studies show that dog owners tend to have lower stress levels, reduced blood pressure, and increased physical activity. The daily walks and playtime with your four-legged friends contribute not only to improved cardiovascular health but also to a more active and vibrant lifestyle.

“Many adoptable pets in shelters are medium-to-large dogs, and they often go unnoticed,” said Terry Kebschull, Director of El Paso Animal Services. “These dogs deserve an opportunity for a loving home and have the potential to make a lasting impact on your life if given the chance.”

All that’s needed to adopt is be above the age of 18 and have a valid photo ID. Adoptions include the pets spay/neuter procedure, microchip, age-appropriate vaccinations and city registration.
