Who You Are Walking For

Rosco

7 years 11 months

Rosco first arrived at the Humane Society of El Paso 344 days ago, he was surrendered by his family full of rashes and scabs . They were informed by their vet that he suffered from allergies and was placed on medications. Since that day Rosco has been struggling with his allergies and has been on antibiotics to help combat staph infections due to his allergies and is now on a grain-free diet. 

 

 

Prince

1 year old 

Prince arrived at HSEP on March 17th, 2022, he is a very friendly and affectionate kitty. He was surrendered because his family could not afford the treatment he needed for his condition. Prince was diagnosed with Entropion, which is a genetic condition in which a portion of the eyelid is inverted or folded inward against the eyeball. This condition results in irritation and scratches to the cornea- leading to corneal ulceration, or corneal perforation. Since arriving at our facility Prince has already had surgery and is recovering.
