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.

Heartworm Treatment
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. 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 $500 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. We accept cash, checks, Visa, Master Card and Discover. To donate online with a credit card use PayPal:
