Hundreds of animals have found their forever homes just in time for Halloween thanks to the SPCA of Texas.

The SPCA of Texas has posted on their blog that 524 animals were adopted in September. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 186 dogs
  • 115 puppies
  • 104 cats
  • 99 kittens
  • 5 guinea pigs
  • 4 fowl
  • 3 horses
  • 3 pigs
  • 2 rabbits
  • 2 rodents
  • 1 reptile

The total number of SPCA of Texas adoptions for the year is 5,106! To keep those numbers on the rise, the SPCA of Texas has cut their adoption costs.

According to the SPCA:

“By reducing prices, the SPCA of Texas hopes to find more pets loving homes, reduce the average pets’ length of stay at the shelter and make space for even more homeless pets in need.”

The new adoption prices are as follows:

  • $100 for all puppies and kittens aged 6 months and younger (previously $125-$250)
  • $50 for all adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older (previously $75-$125)
  • $25 for all senior dogs and cats aged 7 years and older
  • $25 for VIP dogs and cats available for adoption 30 days or more (previously $50)


These are some terrific prices considering that your fee includes the following:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Age-appropriate vaccinations
  • A heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older
  • Initial flea/tick preventative and heartworm preventative
  • A microchip
  • 30 days of free PetHealth Insurance provided by PetPlan
  • A free 14-day wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals
  • A free year-long subscription to Activ4Pets
  • A rabies tag
  • A free leash
