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. 


Our building is closed to the public through Saturday, November 21, in accordance with CDC guidelines.

If you have a particular dog you are interested in meeting, please call and leave your name, phone number and the name of the dog you would like to meet. We will return your call and schedule an appointment to bring the dog outside to meet you. 

If you are interested in meeting the cats or purchasing vouchers for low cost spay/neuter, please call and leave your name and phone number. We will return your call to schedule an appointment.

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!

Pet of the Week

Sally is a 3-4 month old pup.  We think perhaps a mix of Rottweiler and Boxer, but unsure.  She, along with her 6 siblings, was abandoned in a crate outside our shelter.  Two of Sally’s brothers have already been adopted, and we shared one brother ‘Rusty’ last week as our Pet of the Week. We have no history on Sally, but she seems pretty sweet.  You would probably need to help Sally with her house training.  We would also recommend crating Sally at night, or when you are away from home.  This would be until she is accustomed to her new home and environment. If interested, please call Amarillo SPCA at 806-622-0555.  You may have to leave a message with your name and number, for a return call and an appointment.   Our shelter location is 11901 S. Coulter.



Bring completed forms to the Amarillo SPCA shelter for approval.
