(KCEN) -- Hundreds of Central Texas families got a little bit bigger today.
The Texas Humane Heroes hosted a free adoption day, since they're closing for renovations next week.
Vivian Kusak has been waiting weeks to welcome her new dog Taco to the family.
Today was the big day and didn't cost her a dime.
"It is very important to give him a good home. He'll give me his love and I'll give him my love," says Kusak.
Texas Humane Heroes held one more adoption day before they close for renovation. Their goal was to give away over 200 pets in six hours.
With lines of families out the door, close to a thousand people came to the Humane Society to give one these house ready pets a home.
According to Executive Director of Texas Humane Heroes Ron Marallo, "We call them fully vetted. Their spayed and neutered, they're micro chipped. Thirty-day free health insurance."
Texas Humane Heroes expects all of the pets to be gone by the end of the day because starting next week, they'll start restructuring their 16 acre facility and will have a grand opening in march."
Jenna Styles of Texas Humane Heroes says, "We are allowing volunteers to come in to help with renovations to help with painting, remodeling and moving things around."
In an effort to decrease the amount of homeless pets Texas humane heroes just finished renovations at the Williamson County location, hoping it will increase adoptions.
"We increased adoptions from 60 to 70 per month to over 200 per month. We want to get those same numbers here."
Making families like Vivian and Taco a little bigger.
Texas Humane Heroes is expecting to have a grand re-opening in March around St. Patrick's Day.
