Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Amarillo SPCA is committed to finding loving adoring families for our dogs and cats.
We are fierce in our attempts to place our dogs and cats with humans, but are extremely careful with who can adopt and have a rigorous pre-adoption regimen.
If our dogs and cats need to stay while we find them the perfect new home, Amarillo SPCA is ready and willing with loving volunteers, shelter manager, and a Board that will spoil the pets silly with love, long walks, grooming, play time and unconditional companionship.
Amarillo SPCA also provides discount coupon for the community to encourage spaying and neutering, as well as providing the service of microchipping their pet at a discounted price.
Adopting an animal from Amarillo SPCA costs money, which goes toward the spay and neuter, microchipping and shots started.
Amarillo SPCA is determined to send our animals to their final loving home, but only to those who deserve our animals!
Amarillo SPCA gets our animals from a variety of places -- mostly from people that find dogs or cats that have been abandoned. Our shelter also goes daily to the local pound who is forced to put down animals and takes those poor animals that were doomed, and welcomes them into our NO KILL home.
Every animal deserves a second chance. Period.
We give the animals their initial shots, bathe and feed them, and give them a warm bed to sleep in. With help from our volunteers and Board, these animals are pampered as often and as much as possible. We have large play areas and dog runs for the animals.
Each year we have Muttfest which is our #1 fundraiser. 2009's theme is Woof Stock and we have been given a BMW to raffle. We have silent auctions and large restaurants around Amarillo provide all the food, with Coke and Coors providing the beverages. We also have famous entertainment, and SkyHoundz performs each year as a regional competition.
We go to Petsmart and Petco on Saturdays and Sundays respectively, as well as do adoptions at our shelter 5 days a week.
We have a vet on call for us that is absolutely the best vet ever -- Dr. Kerry Don Demere.
There is nothing we won't do for our dogs and cats! Nothing.
For those older animals that may never find a home, we are committed to constructing a Pet Sanctuary in Amarillo and are working on funding to raise $2 million dollars so they can live out the remainder of their lives at a resort.
