Why We Need Donations
Founded in 1967 as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Galveston County, Bay Area Pet Adoptions/SPCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and No-Kill shelter that relies on your donations to house feed and medically care for the dogs and cats taken in our adoption program. We are not operated or funded by any national animal group and must rely on contributions from people like you to keep our shelter open. All financial contributions and in-kind donations are tax deductible. Read more about us here.
Occasionally, some of our great adoptable animals require special medical care, medicines, supplies, and even surgery. Please help us with these costs by donating to the Medical Fund. Please designate that your donation is for the Medical Fund on your check or PayPal donation.

Every dog six months of age or older is checked for heartworm at Bay Area Pet Adoptions. Dogs who test negative are started on heartworm preventative and remain on preventative while they are in our care.
Unfortunately, many of our dogs are testing positive for heartworm. While a heartworm positive dog can be treated if the dog is otherwise healthy, the treatment is very expensive. The treatment cost is based on the body weight of the dog. On average, the cost to our shelter is about $250 per dog. However, the treatment for large dogs is more expensive. Please help us treat our heartworm positive dogs by donating to our Heartworm Treatment Fund. Click here to see some of our dogs currently waiting for heartworm treatment.
