SPCA of Texas Gears Up for 11th Annual North Texas Giving Day


(DALLAS/McKINNEY, TX); September 6, 2019 – The SPCA of Texas is pleased to take part in the 11th Annual North Texas Giving Day on September 19, 2019! Every year, the people of North Texas come together to help thousands of local non-profits, including the SPCA of Texas, on North Texas Giving Day. On that day, gifts made through the SPCA of Texas' profile page on the North Texas Giving Day website will be amplified by bonus funds and prizes between 6 a.m. and midnight, for an 18 hour giving extravaganza!

Our donors' generosity makes it possible for us to rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals each year. It takes about $800 to care for each of the animals that come through our doors. By donating, people give us the ability to say yes to do whatever it takes to save an animal's life. Whether it's $10 or $200, every dollar helps! Visit on North Texas Giving Day to make a donation.

Not available on September 19? This year you can schedule your gift to the SPCA of Texas between September 9 and September 18. Your gift will then be processed on North Texas Giving Day when it will be matched and multiplied with bonus funds. Plus, get in on the fun today with a personal FUNdraising page! Creating your own page is a fun and easy way to raise support from your family and friends for the SPCA of Texas and our mission to help more animals. Create a personalized FUNdraising page by going to the North Texas Giving Day website.

The SPCA of Texas will start off the week's celebrations on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at North Texas Giving Day's NorthPark Center Family Philanthropy Festival and at Party in the Park: A Fiesta at Finch Park in McKinney. Numerous Dallas County and Collin County non-profits will be there celebrating with interactive activities and live performances.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
