El Paso, TX - The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office PAWS vocational program graduates two inmates and finds another canine cadet a“furever” home.

Sheriff Richard Wiles and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Animal Rescue League of El Paso created the PAWS (Pets Advancing Wellness and Success) vocational program to assist inmates in attaining vocational training and to provide homeless pets an opportunity to be adopted.

The two inmates who graduate from the vocational program are now certified in kennel maintenance and animal care. Canine Cadet Kato also successfully completed and graduated from the program and has found his “furever” home.

The canine cadets that are part of the PAWS vocational program can be adopted through the Animal Rescue League of El Paso.
