Emergency Services

The Houston SPCA is the lead non-profit agency for animal-related disaster rescue, relief and resources in the region. Our reach is wide, as we are called to step in when hurricanes, fires and storms ravage the region and state. We have lent our assistance, equipment and shelter in such emergencies as the Great Houston Floods in May of 2015; Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike; the Gulf Oil spill of 2010; and the Tri-County Wildfires of 2011, where our rescue teams went behind the fire lines to rescue pets and farm animals.

Injured Animal Rescue Ambulance. The Houston SPCA is the only agency providing injured animal rescue ambulance service 24-hours a day, every day of the year. Last year we rescued over 3,100 animals from immediate danger and distress, and our ambulances logged over 120,000 miles saving the innocent. Call 713-869-SPCA (7722) seven days a week between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. After hours and holidays, please call 713-880-HELP (4357).

Cruelty Investigations. The Houston SPCA has nine full-time, highly trained animal cruelty investigators. We respond to more than 7,000 cases of cruelty, abuse and neglect each year. The work of our cruelty investigation and rescue team is regularly featured around the world on Animal Planet’s Animal Cops: Houston television show.
