SPCA of Texas Receives $50,000 from ASPCA® to Support the Pet Resource Center


(DALLAS, TX), February 11, 2019 - The SPCA of Texas is thrilled to announce that it has received a generous grant in the amount of $50,000 from the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) to support its Pet Resource Center. The SPCA of Texas' Pet Resource Center offers services for pets of low-income families, providing everything from medical care to behavioral support. The goal of the Pet Resource Center is to keep pets in their homes and out of shelters. The program has become a lifeline for many low-income families who need assistance accessing resources to care for their pets.

Oftentimes, low-income pet owners feel their only option is to relinquish their pet to a shelter when they face hard times. But research shows that in many cases, pet owners who have strong emotional bonds with their pets would choose to keep their pet, if only provided the short-term help needed to make it possible. Lack of financial resources should never be a reason for separating pets and their owners, so the Pet Resource Center provides alternatives to surrendering pets. By providing medical, behavioral and housing assistance at no cost to the pet owners, the Pet Resource Center makes it possible for owners to keep their pets in their homes.

With support from the ASPCA, the SPCA of Texas is able to provide exceptional care for these animals in need, helping these pets stay in their loving homes and out of shelters.

"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!"
