Program areas at SPCA Of Texas

Animal shelters, rehabilitation and adoptions: the Spca of Texas is the leading animal welfare organization in north Texas. The independent non-profit operates two animal shelters,and a rescue center: the dallas animal care center in west dallas, the ellis county animal care center in waxahachie, and the russell e. dealey animal rescue center in west dallas, Texas. These facilities provide shelter, rehabilitation and care for unwanted animals, which come to the Spca of Texas from a variety of sources, including: after being held as strays from ellis county and unincorporated dallas county, surrendered by their owners, transferred from municipal shelters where time and space is limited, transferred from other shelters in the wake of natural disasters, or rescued and awarded to the Spca of Texas in cases of abuse or neglect. The Spca of Texas does not place time limits on animals accepted by its shelters, and does not euthanize animals for lack of space. The shelters also serve as adoption centers where the public can meet and adopt pets. Adoptable shelter pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and kept healthy and happy by Spca of Texas shelter veterinarians, shelter staff, and dedicated volunteers. Together with community partners for mobile and offsite adoptions, and assisted by generous partnership with north Texas media, the Spca of Texas found loving homes for more than 3,100 animals in 2022.
Animal cruelty investigations unit: the Spca of Texas fields a team of three full-time humane investigators, a chief investigator, a case manager and a veterinarian who rescued more than 1,200 animal from cruelty and neglect across three north Texas counties and the city of dallas in 2022. The investigators work with local law enforcement to investigate cruelty and rescue animals from abusive and life-threatening situations. Typical cases include puppy mills, animal hoarding, animal fighting, and abandoned livestock, as well as individual animals that are starving or injured. In addition, the Spca of Texas partners with the dallas county district attorney's office's animal cruelty unit and dallas police department to assist with investigating animal cruelty cases, gathering evidence, and bringing the cases to trial.
Public veterinary clinics: the Spca of Texas operates two low-cost veterinary clinics, the myron k. martin spay/neuter and wellness clinic in west dallas, and the mary spencer spay/neuter and wellness clinic at village fair in southern dallas. The clinics provide high-quality services at low costs so everyone can afford to be a responsible pet owner. Spca of Texas veterinarians and medical teams spay or neuter, vaccinate, and microchip every adoptable animal in its animal shelters, and also provide services to financially struggling or otherwise challenged pet owners with free or low-cost services at the clinics and offsite at community centers and neighborhood gatherings. In addition, the Spca of Texas partners with other animal welfare organizations and community funders to provide free spay/neuter surgeries to pets located in specific low-income or underserved neighborhoods in southern dallas. Each year, the Spca of Texas veterinary programs help make life better for more than 50,000 pets, and the people who love them.
