The SPCA of Texas just celebrated its 75th Anniversary at the Diamond Anniversary Gala this past Saturday, September 21st. This significant event engaged the Dallas community to raise nearly half a million dollars for the beloved agency’s rescue and shelter programs. The black-tie evening included a sumptuous dinner for 1,000 guests in the Omni Dallas’ largest ballroom, live entertainment and dancing with the popular band Professor D, a casino and live and silent auctions, all themed after James Bond’s “Diamonds Are Fur-Ever.”
The evening finished grandly with a heartwarming showcase of the life-saving work of the SPCA of Texas and recognized a dozen prominent Dallas individuals, families, companies and foundations who have made outstanding contributions to the agency over 75 years.

As with all non-profits, community support makes an enormous difference. Currently, the SPCA of Texas is the leading animal welfare agency in North Texas, serving 8 counties and operating two animal shelters and three low-cost veterinary clinics. Its education programs serve children in schools and community centers, and its Humane Investigators work with law enforcement to bring life-saving care to animals under threat. Together, in 2013 the SPCA of Texas team will serve more than 50,000 animals and their people.
In celebration of this wonderful achievement, we’ve asked all of our friends and family to send in pictures of their beloved, furry friends. Watch our heart-warming video and help us say “Thank You” to the SPCA for all it has done for pets in Texas!
