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.

(DALLAS, TX); July 1, 2020 – The SPCA of Texas is thrilled to announce that Fur Ball 2020 will be held on Saturday, September 19 at 6:30 p.m. And this year, the SPCA of Texas’ gala is going virtual for the first time due to COVID-19 with a program that is sure to inspire and uplift the spirits. The one-of-a-kind virtual experience will feature mission-focused stories, entertainment and gratitude, all with a focus of raising important funds for the SPCA of Texas in support of our critical work in our community through live and silent auctions packed with fabulous items, the always-exciting Pony Up for Paws and more. Please stay tuned to www.FurBallDallas.com for details about this reimagined event.
Fur Ball is DFW’s salute to the bond between people and their pets and a celebration of the SPCA of Texas’ important mission to provide every animal with exceptional care and a loving home. All money raised through Fur Ball 2020 will go directly to the SPCA of Texas to help rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals and help keep pets in homes, out of shelters and off the streets. During this difficult time, more than ever, the SPCA of Texas depends on its patrons’ generosity to continue to provide these essential services to our community’s most vulnerable pets and their people.
Fur Ball 2020 is sure to be the bark of the town thanks to Chair Patricia Villareal, Co-Chair Steve Atkinson, Auction Chair Amber Camper and Auction Co-Chair Rebecca Marabito. The Emcee for the evening is Brian Curtis, NBC 5 News Anchor, and the auctioneer is nationally acclaimed auctioneer Grant Snyder.
