'Cause for the Paws' out, 'Rebels & Roses' in

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

The Humane Society of East Texas has some new friends. Outlaw Music Productions is putting together a benefit concert to help offset the costs of running the no-kill shelter.

More than 25 artists will be performing to aid the animals.

The shelter has recently been upgraded with larger cages and more comfortable sleeping areas, but there are still monthly bills. When Outlaw Music heard Miranda Lambert would not be returning to Tyler for her "Cause for the Paws"  benefit, they decided to organize the first annual "Rebels and Roses East Texas Music Festival." And, they're offering something else.

"They have actually offered to have a guitar autographed by all 25 of the artists and bands that are going to be performing over those three days. The tickets are five dollars and you can get those tickets online at outhousetickets.com," Gayle Helms with the Humane Society of East Texas said.

The event is May 10 through 12. Concert tickets are $15 a day. The benefit is being held at K. E. Bushman's Winery in Bullard, and there is camping available.
