PAW-some time had by all at the
33rd Annual K9 Classic
The 33rd Annual K9 Classic, presented by GYN PATH Services, Inc., has come and gone and we can't wait to see what is in store for next year's event! We are proud to announce that we have raised more than $23,000 through this event to cover the medical expenses of the animals in our care.
More than 150 animal lovers and their furry companions participated in the event. Guests were able to enjoy vendors, activities, and food trucks. Every year, the Humane Society of El Paso intakes and cares for an average of 4,000 animals. Medical expenses for their care total nearly $400,000 a year.
Thank you to this year's sponsors: Raising Canes Chicken Fingers, El Paso Veterinary Medical Association (EPVMA), and Lovett Law Firm for your support!

Meet Our New
Education & Volunteer Coordinator

HSEP is excited to introduce our new Education & Volunteer Coordinator, Tayler Quintana. Tayler has a unique background in both animal welfare and working with volunteers. She received her B.A. in Animal Science from New Mexico State University, has worked at HSEP as an Animal Care Associate, and was the United Way of El Paso County’s Volunteer Action Center Coordinator for several years. 
Tayler has deep ties with the El Paso community. Originally born in El Paso, she spent her younger years living in various places. She returned to El Paso in 2011, and for the past 10 years has been an active Girl Scout volunteer as a Service Unit Manager of 6 Girl Scout troops. Along with her daughter, McKenzie, they work to teach younger scouts the importance of community service and giving back. 
As Education and Volunteer Coordinator, Tayler has hit the ground running. She is busy setting up next month’s Critters ‘N’ Kids Summer Ed-Venture Camps, recruiting and training new volunteers, and getting our new volunteer software “GivePulse” up and ready for summer volunteers. With her enthusiasm and work ethic, she will have the department back in pre-COVID shape in no time. We look forward to working with her and her corp of volunteers!

Picks Up, Miners!
After two years of not being able to participate in UTEP's Project Move (Miner Opportunities for Volunteer Experience) due to the COVID Pandemic, we were so excited to welcome their volunteers back to HSEP on April 30th.

This is the 12th year that UTEP hosted the annual day of community service. Campus leaders created this event so UTEP students, faculty, staff, and alumni could give back to the community, and provide opportunities for volunteers to learn more about the community, its residents, and their needs.

Volunteers helped us prepare for our 33rd Annual K9 Classic. They washed vehicles, loaded supplies for the day of the event, helped organize our tool room, and spent time with our animals.

Thank You, Miners! We look forward to participating in next year's Project Move!
Volunteer Spotlight
Meet Frances! She has been a part of the HSEP volunteer team for only a short period, however, she’s already proven time and time again that she’s here to support dogs in need. She has a passion for dog training. Frances has eight years of training experience and works with KPro K9 dog training. She doesn’t shy away from “problem dogs.” Frances makes it a point to work with the dogs that need a little extra work and uses her time to share her knowledge so that everyone is ready to get a stressed-out dog on track for adoption. Frances has shown that all dogs can find a perfect home with a bit of extra love, a little effort, and a lot of teamwork.

Thank you Frances for everything you do for HSEP and our animals!
Are we in your estate plan? 
Nearly every year, the Humane Society of El Paso receives bequests from generous donors who had not previously informed us that they had provided for such a legacy gift. Perhaps they hesitated to tell us because changes in family or financial circumstances might make it necessary to remove or reduce the charitable provision; or perhaps it simply never occurred to them that we would be interested in knowing. Actually, we are interested for the following reasons: We would like to know so we can thank you, and we can also discuss with you any particular purpose for which you would like your gift to be used.

If you have arranged a future gift, we invite you to tell us about it by contacting Deb Benedict, Executive Director at (915) 532-6971 ext 110. We are also happy to honor any wishes about anonymity.
