Home for the Holidays Clear the Shelter Day is December 23 in Central Texas!

LARAS House Promotes Program to “Make Your House a Home…Adopt a Shelter Animal!”

MEXIA, TEXAS, DECEMBER 11, 2017 – LARAS House (Limestone Animal Rescue and Adoption Shelter) in Mexia has a fun day planned to kick off a week of free pet adoptions just in time for Christmas.  Beginning on Saturday, December 23rd through to January 1st, LARAS House will offer free adoptions of their dogs and cats.  Area residents are encouraged to come out and adopt our adorable pets while we are able to waive the adoption fees.


Some very generous sponsors have joined with LARAS House to help make the holiday happier for both families and people wishing to adopt and shelter pets.  Sponsors include: The Malark Foundation; Propane Energy Company; Alan's Tire and Service; REMAX Premier Properties/Womack Insurance/Bobby Forrest; Classic Paint and Auto Body and Wrecker Service/Classic Metal Buildings; Tomahawk Live Trap LLC; Reed and Reed, LLP- Attorneys at Law;  Herbst and Associates,  Shiloh Community Association, Mammoth Pet Products, and several other Friends of LARA House.  Our Sponsors help to cover adoption costs (vaccines, spaying/neutering, care and micro-chipping) for pets adopted during the event.


LARAS House participated in the National Clear the Shelter Day event in August and successfully adopted out 21 dogs & puppies, and 43 cats & kittens.  “We hope to have even more adoptions for this event,” says Valerie Lang, LARAS House Board President.  The 501.C3 no kill shelter has set a goal of raising $8,000 in sponsorships to cover 80 adoptions.  They currently house 85 dogs and 103 cats ready for their forever homes.


LARAS House still has sponsorship opportunities available.  More information can be found on their website: larashouseshelter.org.  Sponsors will be benefitting both the animals in need of homes and the families who otherwise may not be able to afford the new companion they long to love. 


A limited number of event shirts will be available for $20 with all proceeds going towards the event.
