We are Brazoria County STRONG

Dear Brazoria County,

We’ve all seen those heartbreaking commercials on TV of the neglected and abused animals needing food, shelter and medical assistance to stay alive. Most people are so disturbed by the view that they walk away or change the channel. Well those of us at the SPCA of Brazoria County live this commercial every day while sending up prayers that all of our animals will soon be in their forever homes.

Today, we find ourselves in dire straits and are being forced to once again make a plea to our supportive community for financial assistance.

We desperately need your help!

We have 618 animals in our care between the shelter and our foster program:

160 cats
146 dogs
270 kittens
42 puppies

We have recently been hit extremely hard with “kitten season” and dogs testing positive for heartworms. Each day we take in more animals than we adopt out. Our shelter is literally wall to wall with the homeless pets from our community.

We at the SPCA of Brazoria are deeply appreciative of the goodwill and support that we have received in the past from you. We are Brazoria County STRONG and we know that together we can overcome this difficult period. By giving, you will instantly be contributing to save the lives of our helpless animals!

Free Barn Cats!

barn cat

Are you looking for a barn cat?  We have feral (un-socialized) outside cats available.  These special cats have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated and they are free.

If you adopt one of our barn cats, you must agree to provide shelter, food and water.  During the initial adjustment period, you must be able to keep the cat confined in a barn or shed for two weeks to acclimate to their new home, feeding and watering every day.  COME TO THE SHELTER and ask about our barn cat program.  It’s a win-win!

Help us care for our community’s homeless pets.

They are the angels who make sure we have the funds to care for our homeless pets on a daily basis knowing that the money we budget for animal care will be there for us. We couldn’t do what we do without our Shelter Angels. You can become a Shelter Angel by clicking on the Donate Now button on our website and choose “Monthly” as your donation frequency.

Save Infant Kittens. We need your help today!

Click here to donate now!

Nothing is cuter than a newborn kitten. . . unfortunately, nothing is more vulnerable either. We are working hard 24 hours/day, 7 days/week to save the lives of these fragile infant kittens. These kittens come to us abandoned, sick, cold, hungry, and alone. We feed them, treat them for illness and injury, warm them, and love them. Some come to us as orphans, some come in with their mothers, and some are born in the shelter. We need YOUR help to save them all. We must buy kitten milk replacer, heating pads, nursing bottles, canned cat food, feeding syringes, pelleted litter, wire crates, and more. Once they are old enough to be adopted, they must be dewormed, spayed and neutered, and vaccinated before they can go to their forever homes. Some will need further veterinary care. We are inundated with kittens right now, and we desperately need your help. Your donation today will save a life this week! Without your help, we cannot save our most fragile shelter pets. Please donate and share. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

 

So what makes us think we will be successful with our #NKBC2020 campaign to create a No Kill community for ALL of Brazoria County? And what exactly does No Kill mean?

No Kill ≠ No Euthanasia. The word euthanasia comes from the Greek for “good death.” To us, this means we reserve euthanasia for two situations: 1. when it is needed in order to give an animal relief from suffering that we cannot mitigate, or 2. when it is needed for an animal that is so aggressive that despite our attempts to rehabilitate, we cannot safely release that animal back out to the public.

We believe that killing pets that are healthy, or have treatable injuries/illnesses or rehabilitatable aggression, is exactly that: killing. We believe that every pet is an individual, worthy of love and a home.

Why do we know that we can create a No Kill community for all of Brazoria County? Because we have already had success in taking our local communities of Freeport, Clute, and Lake Jackson from a dismal 22% Save Rate to a 95% Save Rate.

We know how to do this. But saving animals takes SPACE and MONEY. That’s why we need your support to build a Community Pet Center to give us the space we need to save more lives.

This chart shows our stats as of January 31, 2017. Our stats are organized by our budget year which starts October 1 and ends September 30.
