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. 


It seems it has been Coronavirus Season (COVID -19) for much too long.  Our shelter closed to the public on March 19th and has remained closed, with only employees working.  Thankfully no employees have lost their jobs and our dogs and cats are being well cared for. 

As new COVID cases still seem to be popping up in our areas, the decision has been made to remain closed at this time. We also were forced to cancel all fundraisers for 2020.  However, in order to still serve the public and to continue our operations (keep our doors open; so to speak), we have been doing everything by appointment, and with caution. The public can call the shelter for an appointment to meet and/or adopt a dog or a cat.  It’s best to call 806-622-0555, between 12 noon and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.  We have very limited hours when someone will be answering the phones.  We try diligently to set those appointments to best meet your needs.

We are accepting dogs and cats when space is available.  That is also by appointment.  A mask and social distancing is required for anyone coming for their appointments.  The shelter location is 11901 S. Coulter.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  Our Website:  Phone: 806-622-0555.

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

Today we are sharing a Rottweiler mix we are calling Axle.  Axle was picked up as a stray and we have been unable to locate owners.  We are guessing Axle to be about 1 year of age.  Axle is very friendly and sweet but actively a wild one.  He needs a family to love him.  Like any Rottweiler, his coloring is black and tan, and he has those pretty brown eyes.  We don’t have history on this dog, therefore we don’t know if he has been around children.  We also don’t know about any training, house training or otherwise.   Amarillo SPCA location is 11901 S. Coulter and we are making appointments for meet & greet or adoption by calling 806-622-0555.  Please call if interested in Axle.



Bring completed forms to the Amarillo SPCA shelter for approval.
