Pet University

Pet University at the SPCA of Texas offers quality training classes, workshops and seminars for pet owners and professionals. 


The mission of Pet University is to strengthen the bond between pets and their people and to retain pets in their homes through training and behavior modification.



Free Behavior Helpline

If your pet has a behavior issue, you have somewhere to turn for free help and advice.

The behavior helpline is designed to help animals in their homes by providing owners with practical information

so that they can alter the relationship they have with their pets to a positive workable one.

All information sent and advice given is based on positive methods of working with your animal’s behavior.

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!"
