A Lot of Love to Give

Every year, the Houston SPCA shelters and cares for hundreds of farm animals, most of which found their way to the organization through our cruelty investigators.

Our first order of business is to get them healthy. This typically includes vaccinations, deworming, treating external parasites, castrations, and trimming hooves and tusks. We also spend as much time as possible getting to know their individual personalities and needs. Some are extroverts and would be great in most homes; some are mischievous and will need an owner who appreciates that. Some are unsocial or have special needs and need someone experienced and willing! Our staff spends a lot of time socializing and loving on our farm animals!

We love experienced adopters, but we do get novice adopters and like to make sure they have done some research and have realistic expectations and good resources. We always require they have a good veterinarian and understand the needs of the species they are interested in.

Farm animals can be wonderful pets and have a lot of love to give. Would you consider giving one a home?
