(DALLAS, TX; WAXAHACHIE, TX); April 6, 2022 – It’s raining pets at the SPCA of Texas, and the North Texas animal welfare agency is offering the public a chance to welcome a new family member with its “Showers of Love” event in April.
Through April 30, all adult animals (6 months and older) are only $25 to adopt at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas, Ellis County Animal Care Center in Waxahachie and Fosters.
“The adoptable dogs and cats at the SPCA of Texas are ready to shower you with love!” said Kelli Eaves, director of Lifesaving Initiatives. “By adopting a pet, you not only save the life of the pet you are adopting, but also save the life of the pet that takes its place at the shelter.”
The SPCA of Texas provides animals care and shelter from a wide range of backgrounds, from owner surrenders to seizures from animal cruelty cases. It provides the added benefit of professional medical care and treatment, and assessments to help make sure animals are prepared for adoption.
Clearing space at the shelter is particularly important at this time of the year as the SPCA of Texas is in the midst of “Kitten Season,” when shelters are inundated with new feline arrivals. The COVID-19 pandemic has also created a backlog of available pets looking for good homes.
“There are some absolutely adorable and loving animals in the shelters right now,” Eaves said. “We’d love to find them all homes so we can fill up our shelters with more pets in need and continue the cycle of adoptions.”
Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older. Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 6 months and older, initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative, a microchip, 30 days of PetHealth Insurance provided by PetHealth, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, one week of free on-demand training from the GoodPup training app, a rabies tag and a free leash or temporary cat carrier.
Adoptable pets can be viewed online at the SPCA of Texas website (www.spca.org/findapet), as well as directions to all of the SPCA of Texas’ five locations (www.spca.org/locations).
