As Houston’s first and largest animal protection organization, we offer the region’s most comprehensive, highly qualified care and services to animals in need. We stand by our mission to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation, and proudly place all healthy animals into loving homes, with adoption partners or in reputable sanctuaries.
We are the leading animal rescue and protection organization in the gulf coast region with the ability to care for a vast array of animal species including companion animals, small pets, horses and farm animals, native wildlife and exotics, all on one campus.
The Houston SPCA is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is not affiliated with any other SPCA or animal welfare organization. We do not receive any government funding or assistance from other animal organizations, relying 100% on donations from businesses, grants and animal lovers like you to support our lifesaving work.
