SPCA of Texas Announces

Virtual Paws Cause 2021


(DALLAS, TX); January 6, 2021 – The SPCA of Texas is excited to announce that Paws Cause 2021, the 25th anniversary of Paws Cause, an event benefiting Southern Dallas Spay/Neuter and Wellness Initiative and the Mary Spencer Clinic at Village Fair, will be held virtually on February 20, 2021. In lieu of in-person festivities, a pre-recorded video to bring the mission of Paws Cause 2021 to guests will be posted the day of the event at, and patrons will be able to pick up delightful goody bags at our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. the same day. Additionally, select, high-level sponsors and donors will have the opportunity to have specially curated goody bags delivered directly to them.
The SPCA of Texas made the difficult decision to step back from holding Paws Cause 2020 in light of the continued COVID-19 pandemic. While there is hope on the horizon, the organization wanted to keep the momentum going for 2021 and make some adjustments to keep health and wellness in mind. Rather than a festive event during this outbreak, the SPCA of Texas will continue to focus on animals in need – especially those belonging to those suffering from illness and loss of work. 

Paws Cause 2021 is sure to be a tail-wagging success thanks to Chair Whitney Eichinger. Goody bags will including a bottle of bubbly, chocolate morsels, a special stemless flute emblazoned with the Paws Cause logo, a La Croix sparkling beverage and an SPCA of Texas bandana for the four-legged friend in your life, all in a custom goody bag provided by Tory Burch.

All proceeds from Paws Cause 2021 benefit the Southern Dallas Spay/Neuter and Wellness Initiative and the Mary Spencer Clinic at Village Fair. The Southern Dallas Spay/Neuter and Wellness Initiative and the Mary Spencer Clinic at Village Fair provide much-needed to care to pets in underserved areas, for free or at a low-cost that families can afford. These services bring pets and their people closer together and allow the SPCA of Texas to give back to the community.

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!"
