If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday?!
This holiday season, the SPCA of Texas has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that celebrates generosity worldwide! Occurring this year on December 3, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday which kick-off the holiday giving season.
On #GivingTuesday, gifts made online at spca.org/GivingTuesday will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000, thanks to a generous gift provided by Northern Trust.
The SPCA of Texas invites the North Texas community to support the animals on #GivingTuesday through donations to help the organization rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals each year. It takes about $800 to care for each animal that comes through our doors. Whether it’s $10 or $200, every dollar makes a difference in an animal’s life. During last year’s #GivingTuesday, 747 gifts were made to the SPCA of Texas, helping the organization raise over $97,000. This year, the goal is $100,000.
Entering its eighth year, #GivingTuesday is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that provides a platform for people to encourage the donation of time, resources and talent. As a global movement, #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
The SPCA of Texas is participating in #GivingTuesday this year to spread the word about the importance of adopting, spaying/neutering and vaccinating pets to serve the most vulnerable animals in our community and make North Texas and beyond safer and healthier for pets and people alike.
You can show your support for the SPCA of Texas on #GivingTuesday by donating at spca.org/GivingTuesday. All money raised will go towards the SPCA of Texas’ important mission to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
