Register Now!

WHAT:  Craving some creative activities for your little critters this Thanksgiving break? Our Fall Fun Camp may just be the perfect spot for unforgettable fun! Give your child the chance to spend a few days learning about and interacting with the animals at the SPCA of Texas’ Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center, where they have the opportunity to play with animals in need of love, make arts and crafts and talk about responsible pet ownership.

Campers will learn the basics of animal care from our professional staff, hear about how our rescue team works to stop animal cruelty, have the opportunity to pet and play with our shelter animals and discuss important values such as kindness and love. They’ll find out what they can do to help pets in their own neighborhoods. Best of all, they’ll meet new friends both two-legged and four-legged!

Fall Fun Camp takes place during Thanksgiving break the week of November 21-23 and is offered to kids between the ages of 8-11 years of age.
Sessions fill up quickly, so be sure to register online at

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!"
