THIS WEEKEND: SPCA of Texas Celebrates North Texas Giving Day at NorthPark Center

SPCA of Texas to Participate in 10th Annual North Texas Giving Day on September 20, 2018

 

 

WHAT: The SPCA of Texas is pleased to take part in the tenth annual North Texas Giving Day on September 20, 2018! Every year, the people of North Texas come together to help thousands of local non-profits for North Texas Giving Day, including the SPCA of Texas. On that day, gifts made through the SPCA of Texas' profile page on the North Texas Giving Day website will be matched dollar for dollar up to $75,000, thanks to a generous gift provided by an anonymous donor as well as multiplied by bonus funds and prizes between 6 a.m. and midnight, for an 18 hour giving extravaganza!


The SPCA of Texas will start off the week's celebrations on Sunday, September 16, 2018 at North Texas Giving Day's Dallas Donation Station at NorthPark Center. Dallas' non-profits will be there celebrating with interactive activities and live performances.


On September 20th, join the SPCA of Texas and other North Texas charitable organizations in celebrating North Texas Giving Day, presented by the Communities Foundation of Texas. This 18-hour event galvanizes citizens to come together and support local nonprofits through online giving. The SPCA of Texas will celebrate the event at Finch Park in McKinney as well!


Our donors' generosity makes it possible for us to rescue, heal and find homes for more than 35,000 animals each year. It takes about $800 to care for the animals that come through our doors. If nine people give the average donation, they 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 save animals.

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!"
