  • The Morehouse Humane Society will hold it's annual Fall Frozen Casserole Sale beginning at 8 a.m. Sept. 12 in the Christ Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall.
    Volunteers will be bringing casseroles and other dishes to be sold in order to raise money for the Humane Society. In addition to casseroles, they will also have baked goods, soups, stews and possibly side dishes, frozen desserts or salads depending on what volunteers bring.
    All proceeds from the sale will go to help with upkeep of the animals in the care of the Humane Society including medicine and vet bills. The Humane Society's mission is to find loving homes for as many animals as possible.
    "We are always anxious for our animals to find a good home," Morehouse Humane Society Board Member Fay Thomas said. "We have wonderful dogs and kitty cats out there including some middle aged dogs that would make good family dogs."
    The shelter is open Monday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shelter does not take in dogs or cats from the public. All animals must come into our shelter through Bastrop Animal Control.
    For more information about the casserole sale, contact Thomas at 281.8712. For information on adopting from the shelter, call 283-0288.
    The Humane Society will also have their bi-annual rummage sale the first weekend in Oct. at the fairgrounds and a Halloween Bake Sale the Sat. before Halloween at Walmart.
    They will begin selling raffle tickets for their annual Arms for Animals Gun Raffle for 2014 the first Saturday of 2014. The price for the whole year is $50. Raffle tickets will continue being sold throughout the year for a chance to win a gun every Saturday. Tickets are still being sold for this year also.
    "Tickets may be purchased from any board member or from Dorothy Ford at the Chamber Office," Thomas said. "DeWayne Glass also has some for sale at Bastrop Tire."
