South Plains SPCA

Adoption Policy

The South Plains SPCA believes that adopting an animal is a forever decision that should not be taken lightly.  We expect our adopters to be committed to loving our animals for the rest of their lives.  

Adoption events are held every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m at 8901 Highway 87, Building 119, Lubbock, TX.  While not all of our animals come every weekend, our volunteers will be more than happy to talk to you about the animals you are interested in.  You can also send an e-mail to [email protected] regarding any of our animals that you are interested in making a forever member of your family.  Meetings can be arranged outside of our Saturday adoption event, usually on Thursday evenings.  

We have an adoption application that must be filled our.  Once the application is approved there is a $150.00 adoption fee that covers the dog/cat being spayed or neutered, current vaccinations, heartworm/tick screening, and microchipped.  Indoo


Lubbock Animal Services offering free pet adoptions at Clear the Shelters event

Miss Mac was among animals up for adoption this week at the Lubbock Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.

Dog and cat lovers can take paws for free Saturday at the Lubbock Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.

Lubbock Animal Services will host its fourth annual Clear the Shelters event from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at the shelter at 3323 Southeast Loop 289.

The regular $30 adoption fee is being waived for the day.

"All of our pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, registered with the city - they're 100 percent free and ready to go," said Steven Green, the shelter's director.

Clear the Shelters is a national event with more than 1,200 shelters participating.

The event was created as a day of low-cost or free adoptions to let every family be able to adopt a pet, and every pet find a home.

Three male and two female kittens were abandoned and brought to Lubbock Animal Services this week.

Green said the event aims to make it easier for some lower-income families to get a pet, although he added there a lot of factors beyond the initial adoption cost that prospective pet owners should take into account.

"People need to realize that some animals and some breeds - especially some larger breeds - are more expensive to take care of than others," he said. "A lot of people don't think about how much time and effort taking care of a petty really is."

For those who are ready to commit to a pet, Green said there are some great animals up for adoption. 

As of Thursday morning, he estimated there were about 350 animals at the shelter - including about 250 dogs and 100 cats.  He said that's about average for this time of year, calling the shelter "pretty close to capacity."

The shelter averages about 20 adoptions per day, but Green said he's hopeful they'll be able to match more than 100 dogs and cats with homes on Saturday.

All that's required to adopt an animal is a valid state ID and to be 18 years or older, he said.

For questions, please contact LAS at [email protected] or call 806-775-2057.

According to the Animal Services website, Clear the Shelter is a national event hosted by NBC Universal. They team up with hundreds of shelters across the country to help find loving homes for animals in need. More than 551,000 pets have found their forever homes since 2015.

The Haven Hope for Animals Fund is a spay/neuter program that utilizes a voucher system.  We are not requesting that you charge a reduced rate.  However, participants will be given a voucher which will authorize specific amounts that the fund will pay (will vary according to type, size, and gender of animal).  The participants will pay the remaining amount of whatever fee you choose to charge, and will be able to choose who will provide services for them.

The Haven Hope for Animals Fund began on February 14, 2013. 

A voucher system will be utilized for the spay/neuter program 

and will be assigned a value depending on the type and size of the animal.  

Referrals will be accepted from veterinarians, other animal service organizations, and from pet owners. 

A request/referral form is available on our website. 

Requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis by Dr. Brenda Wilbanks and Haven staff.   

Additional features of the program will include the following:

  • Volunteers will be sought who can transport the animals to the veterinarians for clients who may be disabled or elderly and cannot provide their own transportation and to provide ongoing aid if necessary.


  • Teaching pet responsibility will be a very important part of the spay/neuter program. This will include the importance of yearly shots, having a secure area for pets, etc.  


  • Emergency vet care for those who need financial help has always been a part of the Haven’s contribution and will continue on a limited basis.  This can also be accessed through the application on our website.

Support Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why Should You Adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

For five years of marriage, I have never seen Anna, my youngest Kira: either I was on a business trip, then she did not come to the. Next family holiday. But. Anna was so good. Maybe I admired her because of the comparison with Kirochka, maybe because of her modesty, which contrasted sharply with the confidence of my.

I bet that this hole was originally deeper. If you went into it to take a shit, then you automatically walked over the shit and some of it was not dry yet, but it seems that. Very few people cared about it. When I approached there were two women in the funnel: one just squatted and shit, and the second lay, wiped with a mixture of.
