We will be here, as we have since 1938, to provide critical services to our community’s most vulnerable animals and their people now and long after this pandemic is over. And we need you to be there for us. This global pandemic will have an impact on our organization, volunteers, staff, fundraising, events, and the economy. Your support enables us to continue in our important work to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
In addition to the animals at our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas and equine and livestock at our Equine and Livestock Center in McKinney, we have animals in our care at the Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center who are under significant medical and/or behavioral treatment, and they will continue to rely on us to rehabilitate them and care for them until they are ready for adoption. These animals came to us from rescues performed by our Animal Cruelty Investigations team. Give generously and be there for these animals. Your support will allow us to continue in our important work.
Additionally, the SPCA of Texas strongly encourages everyone to remember their pets when planning for emergencies. It is always important to be prepared and have a plan for your pets.
