Holiday Adoption Gifts and Donations
With the holidays quickly approaching, the La Porte Adoption Center and Animal Shelter is offering a unique holiday gift opportunity. From the family member or friend who has everything, to the company who provides gifts for employees and customers, give the gift that keeps on giving. By sponsoring an adoption or making a donation in honor of your gift recipient, you can make your gift shopping easier and save an animal’s life!
You can sponsor the adoption of an animal for $85.00, or make a donation of any amount, in your gift recipient’s name. The City of La Porte Adoption Center and Animal Shelter, will send a personalized letter advising the recipient of your donation in their name.
The City of La Porte Adoption Center and Animal Shelter is excited to announce the second annual, Christmas Ornament Fundraiser. The proceeds from this fundraiser will offset the annual cost of our microchip program. Every animal adopted from our shelter receives a registered microchip at no cost to the adopter. This fundraiser will allow us to continue providing this valuable service to our patrons allowing the quick identification and recovery of their animal should they be separated.
A Christmas tree will be set up for public view at the shelter, during the week following Thanksgiving. The tree decorations will include lights, tinsel, and simple wooden ornaments representing the pets of our community.
For a $10 donation, your pet’s name will be painted on one of those ornaments, and then placed on our tree throughout the holiday season, for all to see.
