About Us

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 over 66 years for the purpose of building a better community for all animals through adoptions, education, foster-care, volunteer work and community events.

The HSEP is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and does not receive any funding from the City or County of El Paso, the State of Texas or the federal government. The facility is totally dependent on adoption and service fees, fundraising activities, donations from the community and grants for all of the operating expenses.  The HSEP is NOT affiliated with any national organization such as the Humane Society of the United States, nor is it a member agency of the United Way of El Paso County. 


The HSEP also has an on-site veterinary clinic to provide necessary medical care to residents. The facility does not provide veterinary services to the public or to owned animals.  In accordance with state law, all animals adopted out of the HSEP are surgically sterilized prior to release to a new pet parent.
