Where's Bixby? At the HSEP!

Three years after adopting Bixby, Mike, Bixby’s human, decided to embark on a cross-country journey. That can be a lot for a dog, and Mike considered rehoming Bixby.

Holiday Miracle

Backyard Breeders: Busted!

In the special report, you'll see the collaborative effort between KVIA ABC-7​, City of El Paso Animal Services​, and the Humane Society of El Paso. An HSEP staff member went undercover to shed light on the dark trade, with Animal Services Field Operations standing by to enforce the law, and Stephanie Valle KVIA ABC-7​ reporting. The story is heartbreaking, but does have a happy ending! Bumblebee, the puppy featured, is now in her loving fur-ever home. There are still hundreds of pets in El Paso who need loving homes, and the HSEP encourages you to adopt your fur-baby from a reputable shelter, not buy from someone's living room or backseat.

Even more exciting, the art will be auctioned off, and local nonprofits who participate will receive a portion of the proceeds. This is an exciting and innovative project, and the HSEP is honored to be a part of it!
