El Paso Animal Services wants your old blankets.

With winter settling in, the shelter is looking to stock up on some warm ground cover for the doggos and kitties waiting to get adopted. While El Paso winters aren’t typically the coldest, our nights can get pretty chilly. So, Animal services is asking for donations of new or gently used blankets, sheets, and towels. The one item they will not take are comforters. Dogs have a tendency to rip them up and leave a mess.

Donations can be dropped off at the front door of the shelter located at 5001 Fred Wilson any day between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. And if you could launder the gently used ones before dropping them off they would appreciate that, too.
