Mission: The SPCA of Polk County, is a NO-KILL animal shelter that serves the residents of Polk County & surrounding communities. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operated primarily by volunteers that relies on compassionate friends to enable it to perform its life-saving work. It receives no federal, state or local tax support, United Way funding nor any support from HSUS or ASPCA. It is dedicated to working with the community and with other animal rescue organizations to (1) educate people regarding responsible pet care, (2) reunite lost animals with their owners, (3) provide humane care while seeking loving, compatible, forever homes for animals in its temporary custody, and (4) provide humane euthanasia if it is determined that an animal’s behavior or medical issues leave no other options.
The people who operate the SPCA of POLK COUNTY in Livingston, TX are some of the hardest working, most dedicated people my wife & I have ever met. They are ALL volunteers who give freely of their time ... and sometimes their own money to make sure that the animals who are brought to them are well-cared for are placed with loving families.
