We are open!

We’re thrilled to announce the opening of the Houston SPCA Pet Wellness Clinic, dedicated to serving the beloved pets of our community. Our clinic is committed to delivering top-notch yet affordable veterinary care for your furry companions, encompassing essential vaccinations and preventatives.

As of now, our services encompass vaccinations, preventatives, and online pharmacy services (coming soon). However, we do not currently offer veterinary care for injured or unwell pets, nor do we provide spaying or neutering services. Stay connected with us through social media for the latest updates on our Pet Wellness Clinic as we work diligently to expand our offerings in the near future.

A Voice for the Voiceless for Nearly 100 Years

Community leaders established Houston SPCA nearly 100 years ago to meet the needs of animals in Houston, and we have always put their care and wellbeing first in everything we do. An iconic Houston nonprofit, our organization has grown along with our beloved city, and we have continually adapted our efforts to help the animals in our community best. Since our inception, Houston SPCA has saved and provided services for millions of animals.

Board and Key Staff

No Animal Left Behind

Our mission at Houston SPCA is to improve and protect the lives of animals in our community and to alleviate their suffering and abuse.

We achieve this through a number of programs and services:

William and Evelyn Griffin Campus for All Animals

We have constructed facilities that enable our professionals to share resources across the entire campus, making our services and programs much more efficient. There’s no better way to illustrate the scope of our programs and services than by giving an overview of the Houston SPCA campus.

The Annie White GrahamWildlife Center provides specially designed facilities for temporary housing, care, and rehabilitation of native birds, mammals, and reptiles.

The Outdoor Wildlife Complex allows for the rehabilitation of native birds in mews and flight cages meeting all US Fish & Wildlife requirements.

The Rescue Arena serves as a staging area for large-scale rescues, oils spill, and disaster response, as well as space to exercise and rehabilitate horses.

The Animal Medical Center accommodates our veterinary medical program where animals in our care are triaged, treated and rehabilitated.

Our Veterinary Student Residence uniquely allows Texas A&M fourth-year veterinary students to reside on campus during their powerful, immersive learning opportunity: a required two-week Shelter Medicine rotation.

The Dr. Amy Alexander Equine Care Center provides a safe and healthy environment for horses to recover from cruelty and prepare for placements into new homes.

The CarruthEducation Center hosts humane education workshops, volunteer training, camps, and other gatherings in a sizeable multi-purpose building.

The Ann Slemons YoungAnimal Centerwas designed to increase adoptions by better showcasing adoptable cats, dogs, and other companion animals in engaging ways to prospective adopters.

The Fast Fred Cemo and Ranger Peabody Dog Parksoffer a pet-friendly space for visitors at the new campus.

The David Smyth Administration Centerincreases operational efficiency and performance with an essential area for staff.

Our mission is carried out 100% by donations.
