Throughout the pandemic, many animal rescues and shelters in the Borderland have been filled to capacity and struggling to keep up with the demand of homeless animals in the area. Despite that, the Animal Rescue League of El Paso jumped at the chance to help out a good samaritan who found a dog in need last weekend.

According to a Facebook post, a person was camping in the Davis Mountains "20 miles from nowhere" and saw this dog in the wilderness. The good samaritan then took the dog to the nearest Border Patrol station who informed him the closest city to the area was El Paso, about two hours away.

While many people would have given up at that point, thinking it was too much effort to find the owners, the camper then proceeded to drive the two hours to the Sun City and looked up local rescues. He called the Animal Rescue League of El Paso and despite being at capacity, they opened their doors to help this pup in need.

The male dog isn't chipped and they are currently looking for the dog's owners. The Animal Rescue League of El Paso is asking anyone who knows someone who was camping in the Davis Mountains and lost a dog or saw a social media post about a missing dog fitting the dog's description that they please contact the rescue.
