WHY: All charitable organizations, including the SPCA of Texas, are reeling from the devastating impact of this global health emergency. From food pantries, to medical support and financial assistance, to displaced workers and educational programming challenges, there are people in our communities facing real needs, right now. Organizations that relied on spring campaigns and in-person experiences are particularly vulnerable right now with mass closures and indefinite shutdown. The needs are diverse and they are many, and these organizations urgently need support.

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!"
