SPCA of Texas Offers Adoption Special
for Super Senior September

(DALLAS, TX); August 31, 2020 – The SPCA of Texas is excited to share some super news! Throughout the month of September, the SPCA of Texas will be offering a Super Senior September adoption special. From September 1 to September 30, senior pets (7 years and older) will only be $30 to adopt! In addition, senior people (65 years and older) can adopt a senior pet for free as part of the ongoing Seniors for Seniors special. This special will be offered at two of the SPCA of Texas' adoption facilities, including the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas and the Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center in McKinney.

Historically, the SPCA of Texas has found that senior pets stay in shelter care longer and are often overlooked by potential adopters in comparison to younger pets. Many senior pets prefer a calm, quiet home and less frenetic lifestyle, making them a great match for senior people who are looking for a loving, perhaps less energetic, companion animal to share their golden years with. However, not all senior pets act their age - many older pets still have plenty of energy, pep in their step and love to play, so even families with children can enjoy the love a senior pet has to give.

Adoptions will be available by appointment. Adopters will need to submit an adoption inquiry form in order to begin the adoption process and schedule an appointment to meet the animal of their choice. Please browse our available animals at and visit to inquire about a dog or to inquire about a cat.

Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older. Fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, a heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older, initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative, a microchip, 30 days of PetHealth Insurance provided by PetHealth, a free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, a rabies tag and a free leash. Visit or call 214-742-SPCA (7722) to learn more.

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!"
