Adoption Option: Your dog or cat escaped and you recovered your pet from the Amarillo Animal Management & Welfare Shelter
Animal Rescue Shelter in Amarillo Texas is a Non-Profit, No-Kill animal shelter. We are not affiliated with any other rescue shelter, humane society or dog pound in the Amarillo area. Please visit our website for up-to-date information and photos of dogs available for adoption.
On Wednesday, the tour will make its way through Amarillo. Community members are invited to attend Adoption Day for a chance to adopt a dog, participate in contests benefiting their local animal shelters and learn about homeless pets in need of homes.
One morning we watched Regis and Kelly and they were promoting adopting for the holidays. I looked on line at over a thousand dogs until I was able to narrow it down to five. Fortunately all of the other dogs had been adopted and the only shelter that contacted me back was DAWGS. They told me about Tobin and how he was wonderful. We were also impressed that kids did the volunteer work and Tobin liked kids. We traveled from Odessa to Amarillo to meet him. 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. Dr. Faulkner said the majority of dogs coming into his clinic were recently adopted from the Amarillo animal shelter but said it is also rampant in the community. "Bless the city's heart, people will dump the dogs at the pound. If there is one case that comes in, every dog there gets exposed."Amarillo is seeing a rise in deadly dog diseases. Distemper and parvo have always been a problem at local shelters, but numbers of dogs affected are now on the rise. 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. One program in Amarillo, Texas called Unlocking Hope pairs local shelter dogs with juvenile inmates who help socialize and train the pups to increase their chance of being adopted.
