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.

Volunteer and make every day special for the animals in our shelters. Give your time and heart based on your schedule and interests.
This awesome team cares for hundreds of animals on any given day and keeps a careful eye on any observable changes that may give an insight into their health. They assist our veterinarians during surgeries, give them their medicine, administer vaccines, draw blood, take x-rays, and on and on and on! No two days are the same in the life of a vet tech; the nature of the job is that they face a new challenge every day. That’s what makes our vet techs so special – here at the SPCA of Texas, our veterinary team encounters a wide variety of medical problems that need to be treated.
If you’re interested in becoming a vet tech, stay tuned! As a part of National Vet Tech Appreciation Week, we are going to be showcasing the position and some incredible stories from around the shelter.
