We've Moved!

After more than 40 years at our Dealey Animal Care Center in Dallas, we moved to the brand new Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center on Sunday, January 1st, 2012! Our adoptable pets now enjoy large, comfortable spaces filled with sunlight and warmth while they wait for loving, new homes, and we've now added a third low-cost clinic, the Martin Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic.

Come visit our new shelter at 2400 Lone Star Drive in Dallas beginning January 2, 2012, from Noon to 6 p.m., seven days a week. Below is more information about the new shelter, as well as a few of the photos and videos capturing this momentous occasion.

Opening to Public Today at Noon:
SPCA of Texas' Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center,
Located in West Dallas

$10.5 Million Renovation Will Enable SPCA of Texas to Significantly Increase Services and Save More Lives

(DALLAS, TX); January 2, 2012 – The SPCA of Texas’ new, 70,000-square-foot Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center located at 2400 Lone Star Drive near Hampton Road and I-30 in West Dallas will open its doors to the public at Noon on January 2, 2012.

The new facility’s Myron K. Martin Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic will be twice the size of its Village Fair Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic in Oak Cliff, and will be open to the public for low-cost pet check-ups, treatments and spay/neuter surgeries, in addition to supporting the medical needs of the animals in the SPCA of Texas’ care.

The animal care center includes a spacious shelter for homeless animals, a fully equipped medical wing and surgery suite to care for injured animals and provide spay/neuter and wellness services to shelter animals and for the public, welcoming playrooms and outdoor green spaces where families can connect with adoptable pets, and classrooms for humane education programs and volunteer training in the Rees-Jones Foundation Education Wing. The building already houses the SPCA of Texas’ public call center, Rescue and Investigations team, education programs and administrative offices.

The new facility will replace the SPCA of Texas’ 40-year-old Dealey Animal Care Center at 362 South Riverfront Boulevard (formerly Industrial Boulevard) near downtown Dallas.

The SPCA of Texas purchased the building in 2006 as part of its long-range facilities planning and required relocation from Industrial Boulevard by the Texas Department of Transportation to make way for the planned development along the Trinity River. The SPCA of Texas’ new facilities is located in an area designated by the City of Dallas as the new Dallas Animal District.

Says James Bias, President of the SPCA of Texas, “Our new building will provide significant capacity to rescue and shelter more abused and neglected animals. We will be able to serve many more animals daily than our previous space. We will also be able to accept more pets that owners must surrender due to the economic downturn. Best of all, we will be able to match more animals with North Texas families who seek to adopt pets."

Hinojosa Architecture & Interiors was selected to design the interior and exterior spaces and Hill & Wilkinson was selected as the general contractor.

“The renovations include unique viewing experiences and outdoor spaces that will make it an enjoyable experience for both the prospective adopters and the animals available for adoption,” said architect Gus Hinojosa, AIA. “We want this facility to become a destination for people and their future pets.”

Says Hill & Wilkinson’s Vice President of Retail Rob Dixon, “We believe this new SPCA of Texas facility will serve as a model for pet adoption facilities throughout the U.S. The uniqueness of the design, both inside and outside the facility, may influence how others approach both their adoption services and their educational component.”
