In the past, ARL with the help of donations from the community was able to purchase masks especially used for pets rescued from fires. ARL was able to furnish each fire house in El Paso with masks to use in cases of smoke inhalation to the families pets. The masks have been used on occasion to save a special family pet.

About Us – Animal Rescue League of El Paso

Scroll to the bottom of this page to view maps of pet shelters and rescues in El Paso. In 2012 the Sheriff’s Department started a programs entitled “PAWS” in Detention (Pets Advancing Wellness and Success). Sheriff Richard Wiles, in collaboration with Animal Rescue League of El Paso and the Humane Society of El Paso, has created a canine training program to assist inmates in attaining vocational training and to provide homeless pets an opportunity to be adopted. The PAWS in Detention kennel was built by inmates for inmates. Equipment and supplies were purchased through inmate-generated funds and construction was assisted with inmate labor. Inmates receive instruction in Animal Care by performing daily cleaning and sanitizing of the kennels and cages, feeding the animals, and through training interaction. Since the program’s inception ARL has had an 80% adoption rate with the dogs that have graduated from this program. So the advantage of adopting a PAWS graduate now is that they have been through a training program to learn to listen to commands, walk properly on a leash and interact with many different people. Having them perform so well just shows there is so much potential for them to become a great family member.
