The Amarillo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a no kill 501(c)3 non-profit organization operating solely on donations and fundraisers.  We are not affiliated nor do we receive any assistance from the national SPCA.

Our Mission


The Amarillo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals believes that animals, as living creatures, have value beyond economic measure and are entitled to legal, moral, and ethical consideration and protection.  Our mission is to be an advocate for animals and to defend their rights; to provide for the well-being of our community's animals who are abandoned, injured, subjected to unfair or cruel treatment, or otherwise in need; to cultivate in our community an awareness of the animals whose world we share; to promote a bond of mutual assistance between people and animals; and to instill respect for and appreciation of all living things. 

6/25/20 UPDATES FROM AMARILLO SPCA. Our shelter will remain closed to the public (employees only, no volunteers or visitors), through 7/25/20. Due to COVID 19, this decision is for your health and protection, as well as that of our employees. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we had no idea this would last this long. In regards to adoptions: We are doing adoptions of cats and/or dogs by appointment only during limited afternoon hours Tuesday through Saturday. Call the shelter number, 806-622-0555, and leave a message if necessary. Explain why you would like an appointment and leave your name and number for a call back.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the painful decision to cancel our annual garage sale for 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and please know we will make plans to host the sale in 2021.


For those who have been collecting items for the sale and don’t feel you can continue to store them, you can bring them to the shelter, 11901 S. Coulter St., for storage. Since the shelter is closed due to the pandemic, please call 806-622-0555 to arrange a time to bring them in.


Thank you!

Pet of the Week



Bring completed forms to the Amarillo SPCA shelter for approval.


Aria is a pretty Catahoula Leopard dog.  She is about 2 years old and weighs between 50 & 60 pounds. Aria’s owners were moving and surrendered her to the Humane Society.  We rescued Aria from there.  Aria is active and playful and likes children and adults. She is somewhat competitive for attention when around other dogs.  She might be best as the ‘only’ dog in your home.  Per the previous owner, Aria is a very loving dog. She likes toys and may need instruction in house training. If interested, please call Amarillo SPCA at 806-622-0555 for an appointment to meet Aria.  The shelter location is 11901 S. Coulter.
