Houston SPCA

The NNGH also supports the Houston SPCA, which was founded in 1924 and is Houston’s first and largest animal protection organization and shelter. Its mission is to promote commitment to and respect for all animals and free them from suffering, abuse and exploitation. The Houston SPCA is a private, non-profit charity, funded entirely by donations, which receives no funding from the government, United Way or national or national animal groups.

There are dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, small companion animals and even farm animals available for adoption every day. If you would like more information about Houston SPCA, visit

NNGH will collect items for Houston SPCA at our last luncheon of the year in May.

The wish list for the month of May includes toys for dogs and cats, can openers, hand sanitizers, disposable rubber gloves, paper towels, gallon size zip lock plastic bags, cotton swabs and cotton balls.
