The Humane Society of El Paso (HSEP) is the oldest and largest NO-Kill animal shelter in the City and County of El Paso, Texas and have remained in continuous operation for nearly 70 years for the purpose of building a better community for all animals through adoptions, education, foster-care, volunteer work and community events.
The HSEP takes in between 3,000 and 4,000 animals annually, and celebrates just as many adoptions. Through a growing foster program and expanding outreach efforts, the HSEP is looking forward to continuing to save more lives.
