The Houston SPCA is the first and biggest animal welfare protection group and shelter in the area. Its aim is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse, and exploitation.
Its services include adoption of small companion animals and giving them a second chance at having a happy home life, admission for relinquished pets (this includes a 15-minute counseling for the pet owner followed by medical and behavioral evaluation.), spaying/neutering especially for pets that are being put up for adoption, sheltering, cruelty investigations, disaster relief to keep people and animals free from harm during emergency situations, 24-Injure Animal Rescue which aims to rescue stray animals that have been hurt, Lost and Found, humane education to teach members of the community about responsible pet ownership, Pet Loss Support Group, animal behavior programs, and dog training classes.
As a private organization, they rely on the help of the community instead of federal and state funding to keep their operations running. Some of the volunteer opportunities at the Houston SPCA include providing direct animal care, helping out in admissions, at the barn, providing clinic technician assistant services, helping out at the front desk/acting as adoption counselor, participating in humane education programs as well as in special events hosted by the group.
