SPCA of Texas

Founded in 1938, SPCA of Texas is the most comprehensive and longest-serving animal welfare agency in North Texas. Our mission is to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.

About Us

Welcome to the
SPCA of Texas!


We are local and supported by North Texans. All money donated to the SPCA of Texas stays in North Texas to help our local community.


We are an independent nonprofit and do not receive general operating funds from the City of Dallas, State of Texas, federal government or any national humane organization.


We never euthanize animals for time or space, only as an end-of-the road option to prevent long-term hardship and suffering. We have a 96% live release rate.

We prevent and prosecute animal cruelty.

Our Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit serves the North Texas community by investigating thousands of reports of animal cruelty each year, including abuse, neglect, hoarding, commercial breeding, animal fighting and more. We work hand-in-hand with local law enforcement and animal control agencies, assisting with the rescue and care of animals that suffer from cruelty or neglect.

Join the Fight

We care for animals.

We provide rescued and stray animals the life-saving care and rehabilitation services they need, plus affordable, high-quality care for pets. We bring wellness and spay/neuter services to the communities where they are needed most, two mobile wellness vehicles and a full-service clinic.

Our Clinic Services

We connect people and pets.

Each year, thousands of pets find their fur-ever homes through foster and adoption programs at SPCA of Texas. Potential adopters can meet pets at shelters in Dallas and Ellis counties, at mobile adoption events and at select PetSmart locations.

Adoption Opportunities

We keep animals in their homes.

The SPCA of Texas’ Russell H. Perry Pet Resource Center provides temporary support to pet owners in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex who are experiencing financial hardship and are at risk of having to surrender their pets.
