SPCA of Texas to Participate in North Texas Giving Day on September 22, 2016

 Group Sets Goal of $200,000 to Help Rescue, Heal and Find Homes for More Pets


(DALLAS, TX); September 8, 2016--The SPCA of Texas is pleased to take part in the eighth annual North Texas Giving Day on September 22, 2016! On that day, all gifts of $25 or more made through the SPCA of Texas profile page on the North Texas Giving Day website will be multiplied by bonus funds and prizes between 6 a.m. and midnight! Every nonprofit receiving a donation on North Texas Giving Day receives a portion of the total $2.5 million in bonus funds, which increases the value of every dollar donated.

Additionally, an anonymous donor is providing a dollor-for-dollar match of up to $50,000 to encourage the community to give to the SPCA of Texas on North Texas Giving Day.

North Texas Giving Day is powered by Communities Foundation of Texas, a 63-year-old community foundation that has produced North Texas Giving Day since 2009. As the largest community foundation in Texas and one of the largest in the nation, CFT works to strengthen the community through a variety of charitable funds and strategic grantmaking initiatives. The foundation professionally manages more than 900 charitable funds for families, companies, foundations and nonprofits and has awarded more than $1.5 billion in grants since its founding in 1953.

During last year's North Texas Giving Day, 200 more donors gave to the SPCA of Texas than in 2014. We more than doubled our revenue compared to the previous year and we nearly doubled our goal of $100,000! And this year, our goal is $200,000.

Our donors' generosity makes it possible for us to rescue, heal and find homes for more than 50,000 animals in need each year. The community's support is truly inspiring, and gives us all renewed energy to live our mission: to provide every animal exceptional care and a loving home.

North Texas Giving Day is not just a day. It's a movement that inspires and unites tens of thousands of donors across the world to support their favorite North Texas causes online through www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
