Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Founded in 2001, Pets Alive-El Paso works to stop the killing of adoptable animals in El Paso animal shelters by promoting spaying/neutering, by providing free spay/neuter services to low-income pet guardians .I think its wrong that more animals pets are being killed cause owners don’t want them anymore or they can’t find others to adopt them it is sad but I am glad that one of the older shelters in El Paso are adapting the no kill policy I adopted my cat a few months a go from Petco cause I felt like he deserved a great home with ppl who will love him and take care of him the best they can
