Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

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!

BUDDY is a Great Dane mix, who is 5 1/2 years old.  Buddy is good with other dogs; however usually prefers the company of female dogs.  As far as people area concerned, once again, he prefers women; that is after he warms up to them.  You see, he’s a big, shy boy.  He probably needs a calm environment, with no small children, and no stressful situation or surroundings.  He is smiling in these pictures, but at times his expression looks a little sad.  Once he’s comfortable with you, he even likes to cuddle up.  He may have a bad habit of pulling things off the table, due to his size.  At least that’s what the previous owner indicated.  This large boy needs space.  If you are interested in giving Buddy a home, please call our shelter at 806-622-0555.

COWGIRL, also known as Lucy, is an 11 month old (DOB: 3/17/20) Labrador Retriever/Blue Heeler mix. She’s medium-sized; weighing about 52 pounds.  Cowgirl was an owner surrender, due to owner’s health concerns and the inability to handle such an energetic breed.  Cowgirl was truly loved, but now needs a new home.  Cowgirl is a beauty in her shiny black coat, with a bit of white on the chest.  Cowgirl is extremely energetic and needs an active family.  Perhaps a jogging buddy, and people dedicated to her exercise needs.  Cowgirl is housebroken, crate trained, good with other dogs and with cats.  She’s been raised around adults, but older children would be great as well.  Cowgirl seems to be a curious girl who may needs lots of toys and busy work for mental stimulation.  Cowgirl has had several weeks of training with the Proven K-9 training group.  We are told Cowgirl likes riding in the car, at which times she sits and looks out the window; no jumping around.  Cowgirl also loves to play ball; just tell her to sit, count to 3 and then say go.... word is she would go after that ball all day long.  She does need a safe and secure fenced yard for times she spends outdoors.  Call Amarillo SPCA at 806-622-0555 for an appointment to meet & greet or to adopt. Our shelter location is 11901 S. Coulter (presently by appointment only).
