Stories Behind the Photo

Gravy and Stuffings

Gravy and Stuffing arrived at the Houston SPCA before they were even born. We rescued their mom, Amber, after she was found by our cruelty investigators in a ditch near our campus. Amber went into labor in the early days of October 2021 and gave birth to what would become the Thanksgiving Litter. The puppies’ names were Pumpkin, Turkey, Gravy, Ham, Biscuit, and Stuffing.

Reese and Minnie

We received a call about two kittens that were orphaned and our injured Animal Rescue Ambulance went out and took in the kittens. They were too young to be adopted, so our foster community quickly jumped in to give these little girls a place to call home until they were ready to find their loving home.

Poppy

Poppy was a transfer from a partner organization that specializes in mules. Our veterinarians were able to treat her for lameness and she recovered in no time.

Magneto

Magneto came to us from another agency, part of our efforts to help overloaded rescue groups across Texas and give more pets a chance to be saved.

Muse

Muse was one of 154 adoptable pets we were able to take out of harm’s way in advance of Hurricane Ida. This freed up space for Louisiana shelters to take in more animals after the storm.
