Animal Rescue League of El Paso, Inc. (ARL) is a volunteer based, No Kill shelter. Founded in 1995, we serve El Paso County and Southern New Mexico. ARL focuses on rescuing homeless dogs/cats in our community who either find themselves on death row at Animal Control or on the streets as strays.
Here in El Paso it is interesting that we have more dog adoptions than we do cat adoptions. So, dogs are more popular for the population that comes into the shelter, Hoover said.

The ARL shelter is located at 7256 La Junta, in Canutillo, Texas (10 miles north of El Paso, TX). We house approximately 100 dogs and puppies and 100 cats and kittens available for adoption. We do not have a physical location; our shelter is “everywhere and no-where.” We are one of the few 100% foster-based rescues in the area of El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM. We believe that keeping rescued dogs in homes helps them get acclimatized to a home-life environment. Dogs are fostered in volunteer homes where their temporary family works hard on their manners and socialization skills. This also allows fosters to understand the dog’s personality, which helps the new owner, the dog, and us, with its transition to a new home. Our goal is that, all dogs transition from a foster home-life setting to your home already knowing how to interact with you and your family so you can be sure that the pup you choose is the right fit.The ARL shelter is located at 7256 La Junta, in Canutillo, Texas (10 miles north of El Paso, TX).

Instead they issued the following statement: “Animal Services did erroneously euthanize a dog that had been quarantined at the shelter as a result of a biting incident. We sincerely apologize to the family for the loss of their pet. Animal Services is investigating the incident and will take corrective measures necessary to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.”Saddleblanket owners Bonnie and Dusty Henson have always had compassion for animals and consider them part of the family, but dogs have left the biggest imprint on their hearts. In addition to running their iconic El Paso store, they've made time to rescue strays and volunteer with El Paso shelters.
