SPCA rescues more than 2,000 animals in 2011

Dec 18, 2011

DALLAS - The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says its North Texas operation rescued more than twice as many animals this year from suspected cruelty situations than in 2009.

The 2,029 animals seized and placed into better living conditions were done by the SPCA’s five-member rescue and investigations team, plus area law enforcement agencies. The SPCA serves eight local counties.

In a news release, the organization says their team typically responds to 4,000 calls in a given year.

With the record number of rescues, the SPCA says it’s been a real challenge this year. The SPCA is a non-profit entity and is asking for public support in these final days of the year. You can learn more at
