Review for Central Texas Spca, Cedar Park, TX, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I joined the Central Texas SPCA as a volunteer about 8 years ago, and I love this organization. I chose this animal shelter because it was a "no kill" organization, and I am so happy I did. Not only does this shelter keep the animals until they are adopted, but a) they treat every single animal with respect and love b) they take care to promote animals who are less likely to be adopted fast c) they do not hesitate to turn down potential adopters if they believe that the animals will not have the right quality of life. The facilities are clean and the cats (I volunteer on the cat side) have nice habitats that allow them to move around and socilaize with other cats and people. Every habitat is big enough for visitors and volunteers to share the space with the cats. All habitats have toys, brushes and poles. The litter boxes are cleaned on a regular basis. To give you an example of how exceptionally respectful of animals this shelter is, one of the cats, Amos, was a resident for around 16 years! Even though it became evident that he was not adoptable (he got adopted and returned several times), he was the king of the shelter and lived a long and happy life there until he passed away this year from kidney disease. The shelter did everything to take care of Amos until there was nothing that could be done to keep him comfortable. This is one example among many why the Central Texas SPCA is a great organization and I'm proud to give them my support as a volunteer and a donor.
