Festival nets 23 forever homes
Paw festival pet costume contestants

On Saturday October 28th, 2017 the City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility hosted the Paw Festival as part of the October National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. The adoption efforts started on October 24th and ended on October 28th with the Paw Festival activities. 23 animals were paired with forever homes during this short period of time.

The festival included snacks, drinks, and activities such a jump house and a pet costume contest pictured above. This adoption period was partially funded by Triumphant Tails, Inc. a Texas-based canine welfare organization comprised of dedicated animal lovers committed to the rescue, training, rehabilitation, care and placement of unwanted, homeless, sick and/or abused animals into new homes dedicated to providing them love, care and lifelong support.

This event and partnership with Triumph Tails Inc. is just one example of the many programs the City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility host in the continuation of our committed effort to find loving homes for all the animals in our care.

For the low adoption fee of $50, you could take home one of the animals that come into our care. The adoption fee comes with a voucher to have your new family member spayed or neutered and Rabies Vaccination. The Adoption Center also provides free basic vaccinations and a registered microchip with each adoption.

The City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility is located at 10901 Spencer Highway, La Porte Texas. The hours of operation are Monday - Friday from 9AM-6PM and Saturday/Sunday from 9AM-3PM.

If you have any questions about the City of La Porte Animal Shelter and Adoption Facility, the programs offered, or are interested in volunteering in any way, please contact Animal Control Supervisor Clarence Anderson at 281-471-3810 or visit their Facebook page @laporteanimalshelter
