Ellis County SPCA
The Ellis County SPCA opened to the public in August 2004. We are a private non-profit 501(c) (3) organization and are located in Waxahachie, Texas. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or the ASPCA of New York. Our success depends on the support of donors, volunteers, and animal housing contracts with the City of Ennis and the Ellis County Sheriff's office. Due to the extreme number of animals brought in by animal control, we are unable to be a no kill shelter. Due to an increase in population in Ellis county, there is also an overpopulation of animals. A group of concerned citizens has formed the Ellis County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (EC-SPCA) in an effort to increase adoptions of these animals, to educate our community about the importance of spaying and neutering, to provide information on proper animal care including kindness towards animals, and to help build a modern animal care center. The Ellis County SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was founded in April 2003 by a group of volunteers from the community who saw the need to: •Increase adoptions of unwanted animals by offering them a second chance for life in a loving home; •Foster public sentiment of humanity and gentleness toward animals, and; •Encourage and promote responsible pet ownership by increasing spay/neuters.
