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.

Back in February, the SPCA of Texas received protective custody of a puppy found confined to a closet inside of a Dallas apartment in connection with a case of alleged child abandonment. The puppy was seized as part of an ongoing animal cruelty investigation by the Dallas Police Department.
We’re thrilled to reveal that Mantis has found a loving forever home and is living the good life!
From her new mom:
“If anyone remembers ‘Mantis’ now named ‘Zella’ who was rescued from a locked closet in a Dallas apartment earlier this year, this is her now ❤ about 8 months old now and adored by all, she loves car rides and her two rescue pittie sisters. She’s so happy and healthy, despite her rough past and I love her so dearly.”
Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we’re able to give rescued animals like Mantis a happy ending. North Texas Giving Day is less than a month away, and we hope you make us your charity of choice. Abused animals like Mantis can’t speak for themselves, so they’re relying on people like you to give them a voice. Keep an eye out for more stories coming up about animals you’ve helped make a difference for right here in your North Texas Community, and we’re hoping for your support during North Texas Giving Day on September 19!
