By Carlos Olmedo, Guadalupe Corral-camacho, Mario E. Caire

Abstract

The Institute for Policy and Economic Development (IPED) at the University of Texas at El Paso was contracted by El Paso City Animal Services (EPAS) to conduct a survey of El Paso County residents’ attitudes and perceptions about: 1) stray and unclaimed animals within the community, 2) general issues regarding a ‘No Kill’ initiative, 3) the EPAS shelter’s capacity, 4) and the handling of animals with special needs. The main goal of the survey was to identify the level of support within the El Paso community for expanding funding and capacity at the EPAS shelter to promote a ‘No Kill’ policy for healthy animals and animals with medical or behavioral problems that can be treated or managed.
