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. 

Pet of the Week

Peaches is a 1 1/2 year old Rat Terrier, possible Chihuahua mix.  She is very friendly and loves to cuddle. We were told Peaches does have a bad habit of running into the road, into traffic, so she needs to be watched at all times. She likes other small dogs. Peaches will need instruction in housetraining.

Pumpkin is a small, tan & white Chihuahua.  We think she is about 9 months of age.  Pumpkin is okay with other small dogs.  We were told Pumpkin does bark and whine some, but okay once she gets to know you.  She is good with children.  Pumpkin will need instruction in house training. 

Both dogs were rescued from an inadequate living environment, and they just need a safe place and people to love them.  If interested, please call the shelter at 806-622-0555, and leave a message that you would like to meet Peaches and Pumpkin.  An appointment can be made for you, as the shelter is still closed, due to the virus.


Bring completed forms to the Amarillo SPCA shelter for approval.
