How You Can Help The Houston SPCA

Share this story with your
friends and let them know
you support The Houston SPCA!

The Houston SPCA is funded entirely by donations from caring individuals, community-minded businesses, and gift and grants from charitable foundations.

Intervening on behalf of nearly 50,000 animals in need each year is an expensive endeavor, and your generous donation today will help further our mission.  Donating to the Houston SPCA is an investment in your community because your entire donation is used locally to benefit the animals of our area.

Did you know that the ASPCA is not an umbrella organization?  If you give to them, your donation will not be distributed locally.  When you give to The Houston SPCA, you help animals right here in the Texas Gulf Coast region.

The Houston SPCA is a private, non-profit organization which receives no funding from the government, United Way or National Animal Welfare organizations. We rely on the generosity of the community we serve to support us and the many services we provide.  With more than 90 years of service to the animals and people of Houston, Harris County, and the greater Gulf Coast region, the Houston SPCA has a long-standing record of careful stewardship of funds. 

Below are the many giving opportunities for the Houston SPCA.  Scroll down the page and see which one is best for you.  We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is tax deductible.

Honorariums and Memorials

Animals are dear to many people’s hearts. And what better way to honor or memorialize someone than with a gift to the Houston SPCA. We receive honorariums for birthdays, marriages, every day accomplishments and even a few BARK Mitzvahs! Memorials are a great way to remember a beloved pet or loved one and their love for animals.  Please remember to include the name of the person in whose name the donation is being made.

One of the easiest and most cost effective ways is through our Animal Friends Monthly Giving Program. This program offers donors the opportunity to give a monthly gift directly from your checking or savings account or on your credit card. This is a cost effective way to help us because we are able to save money on mailing costs.   It’s easy for the donor because you don’t have to remember to send in that gift you’ve been meaning to send in!

Do Something That Costs You Nothing!

It’s simple to help!  Just present your donation card or Houston SPCA code to the corresponding grocery store and a portion of your bill will be donated to the Houston SPCA. These cards are different from your "rewards" card.  It really adds up!

Randall’s Remarkable Card Code 777.  Stop by the customer service desk at Randall’s and they will link your Remarkable Card to our Good Neighbor number.

If you shop at Gerland’s, ask them to link number 115970 to your Reward’s Card.

The Kroger Company has recently changed their Neighbor to Neighbor Donation Program.  As a result, any cards previously issued in association with the Houston SPCA may no longer be effective.  Click here to print a new Kroger Donor Form. 


We hope you will support the important work of the Houston SPCA through one of these giving opportunities.  As a non-profit organization relying on donations from the public, support is crucial to the success of our animal protection programs. If you would like more information or would like to make a gift, please contact Stacy Fox at 713-869-7722 ext 127 or via email.
