Every year, the people of North Texas come together to help thousands of local non-profits for North Texas Giving Day, including the SPCA of Texas. The organization has been serving the Dallas area since 1938 making it the oldest and largest animal welfare organization in North Texas.
When you donate to the SPCA of Texas, you’re helping thousands of local animals. There are thousands of animal cruelty cases every year in North Texas. Dogs, cats and other animals stuck in situations such as abuse, neglect and hoarding. These animals don’t have a voice to fight for themselves, but people can help by making a gift on North Texas Giving Day. Every gift matters because it only takes nine people to make a difference in an animal’s life.
With the help of donors, the SPCA of Texas helped more than 35,000 animals in 2017. Animals like the tiny kitten Arnold, who was found abandoned, stuffed inside a tied plastic bag. Arnold was soaked and freezing cold when shelter workers rushed him back to the SPCA of Texas. For the next couple of weeks, things were touch and go for Arnold. But now this feline fighter has found his forever home.
On average, it costs about $800 to care for the animals that come to the SPCA of Texas. If nine people donate, they give the SPCA of Texas, the power to say yes, to do whatever it takes to rescue, rehabilitate and help those animals find their forever homes. Whether its $10 or $200, every dollar helps save animals.
Because of all the generous people who gave on North Texas Giving Day last year, the SPCA of Texas was able to save the lives of more than 400 animals! Now, the SPCA of Texas is excited to be part of another North Texas Giving Day, especially as we celebrate the 10th year of the event! During North Texas Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community.
