Welcome to Animal Rescue League of El Paso.
All us at Animal Rescue League of El Paso hope you had a fantastic year. ARL had a very busy 2013 finding forever homes for hundreds of dogs and cats. We also introduced new events and have our very own 2014 Animal Rescue League calendar. Start your new year off with one of our beautiful calendars. We are selling them for $20 and they are available at our shelter. Once you see the beautiful pictures inside you'll want to be part of the 2015 calendar.
Animal Rescue League held a new event in September called "Running of the Chihuahuas". It was a blast! ARL held chihuahua races, a costume contest and had dog related vendors. There was music, food and a lot of fun. Everyone asked if we were planning the event for next year and the answer is "YES". We are going to expand the races to include other dogs also. Watch for this event in September.
Animal Rescue League also started another event in which we plan to continue, "Pictures with Santa"! Each Saturday before Christmas and one Sunday, we took pictures of dogs, cats, family members with Santa in our holiday village. Although a couple days were a bit chilly, it did not stop families from bringing their animals out for a picture with Santa in his sleigh. Hot coffee, courtesy of Starbucks, cookies courtesy of Vista Markets and treats for the dogs were served. The pictures were $10 each printed and mounted on a holiday card. Be sure to mark your calendar in December to bring the babies out for pictures!
We hope 2014 brings more wonderful things your way and Animal Rescue League can continue helping the stray, abandoned, abused and injured dogs and cats in the El Paso area. Our shelter is opened everyday for adoptions, some holiday exceptions, and we also show animals at PetsMart on Sunland Park on Saturdays and some Sundays for adoption. We can't thank all the people, organizations and businesses enough that help ARL continue our life saving work.
