The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Visits the SPCA of Texas!

We had a very pleasant surprise here at the SPCA of Texas last Sunday. Girl Scout Troop 5391 came to show their love for animals with their Take Action idea to make dog treat bags out of bandanas. When the girls learned about our new animal friends from Louisiana and Mississippi, they decided that they would deliver treat bags to our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. They also enjoyed some time with our dogs and cats! Thank you for your support, Girl Scouts!

PHOTOS: Gulf Coast Transfers at the SPCA of Texas

Check out all our photos of the dogs and cats who came from the gulf coast on our Facebook page! Go to our Facebook photo album to see them and even download them.


They're here!

All of the animals have safely arrived at our shelters! The Louisiana SPCA arrived at the Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center in McKinney at 6:55 a.m. with 87 cats and 60 dogs. The Humane Society of South Mississippi arrived at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 8:15 a.m. with 34 cats. So that’s a total of 181 dogs and cats.

All of the animals had a long ride, but they’re all settled in with fresh water, healthy food and lots of cuddles. Huge thanks go out to the teams from Louisiana and Mississippi who made the long drive to bring the animals to North Texas! The SPCA of Texas is thrilled to be able to help the Louisiana SPCA and the Humane Society of South Mississippi make room for the animals sure to need help as Isaac hits the Gulf Coast.

We’ll be transferring 50 of the dogs to our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center today and are going to be evaluating all of the animals so that we can put as many of these adoptable transfers onto our adoption floors as soon as possible, hopefully today! Stay tuned to www.spca.org/findapet to see all our adoptable pets.
