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.

We have a fun contest to announce to our supporters! The SPCA of Texas is offering a shelter pet naming contest to those who register for its 16th annual Strut Your Mutt, the Race to End Animal Cruelty, from March 1 through March 7, 2021. All who register during that time will be entered for a chance to win and choose the name of a shelter pet at the SPCA of Texas, pending final approval by the organization. The winner will be announced on the SPCA of Texas’ social media channels on March 8, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. To register for Strut Your Mutt, visit www.gostrut.org.
The goal of Strut Your Mutt is to raise awareness about animal cruelty in North Texas. The SPCA of Texas’ Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit responds to thousands of calls to rescue abandoned or neglected animals, many resulting in criminal convictions in multiple North Texas counties. This critical work continues, even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
To participate, register and form a team at our all new website, gostrut.org, and fundraise to help the SPCA of Texas. Registration for a virtual strutter with a sport t-shirt is $40, a virtual strutter with a t-shirt is $35 and a virtual strutter without a t-Shirt is $25. Additionally, runners can track their mileage with apps such as Run Keeper and Strava. Once a team is registered and given a memorable name, strutters can set up a fundraising goal, recruit team members and build team spirit through their team page.
