El Paso, TX –  The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Pets Advancing Wellness Success ( PAWS) has been busy with training and finding cadets “furever” homes this past month.

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.

In, June, three of our canine cadets completed the program and are now basic obedience certified. The three canine cadets also found “furever” homes with the help from the Animal Rescue League of El Paso.

Canine Cadet Toby will be calling the Medina Family is “furever” family.
