Houston SPCA boasts passionate, experienced animal welfare professionals available to answer all of your questions about current cases, community efforts, and more.

Dr. Roberta Westbrook, Chief Animal Welfare & Medical Officer, on pet safety during Texas summer heat

“Leaving your pet outside can have devastating consequences as we have seen with recent horrific cases,” said Dr. Westbrook. “If you plan on leaving your home, please bring your pet inside to ensure their safety or at least make arrangements to make sure they will have adequate food, water and shade to help regulate their body temperature.”

Dr. Westbrook is the authority on the veterinary medical field and animal care 

Adam Reynolds, Chief Cruelty Investigator, on the importance of reporting animal cruelty

“Securing video to report animal cruelty is very useful against those who dare to commit these senseless crimes in public view,” says Chief Reynolds. “It’s critical to call us or report cruelty online because it can save lives.”
