The SPCA of Texas is one of the oldest and largest comprehensive nonprofit animal welfare organizations in Texas with locations in Dallas and McKinney. The SPCA of Texas operates two animal care and adoption centers, one animal rescue center, three low-cost care clinics and two mobile clinics to fulfill its mission of providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home. The clinics provide low-cost or free spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and preventative healthcare services to the public and shelter animals. Animal Cruelty Investigations investigates reports of animal cruelty and neglect in multiple North Texas counties. Staff veterinary teams and animal behaviorists, along with an active corps of volunteers, care for all animals brought in through seizure, transfer or owner-surrender.
The grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will allow the SPCA of Texas to increase the number of senior dogs in their Fospice (Foster + Hospice) program. These dogs have a good quality of life, but the costs of their ongoing medical care are extensive, historically deterring adopters. In Fospice, the organization covers the cost of their medical care and foster volunteers take the dogs into their home, giving them loving care for the rest of their lives.
