People Programs

People Programs

The SPCA of Texas offers a variety of programs which enhance our human experience through interaction with animals.

Programs that educate children, assist people and pets in need, reunite lost pets with their families, counsel people whose pets have passed away and provide for pets that outlive their owners.

We're here to be an active resource center providing an array of programs and services that bring people and animals together to enrich each others' lives.

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!"
