SPOT is gearing up for our most popular fundraiser - Waggin' Tailsa crawfish boil at the historic Pierce Ranch on Saturday, April 22, 4-8pm, honoring Becky Burrell & Christine Stransky.  The event will offer the southern charm & scenery of the Shanghai Pierce Ranch coupled with the fun atmosphere of zydeco music & a crawfish boil along with spirits, games, a photo booth, raffle, live auction & more.  It's always a night to remember!

SPOT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping the abandoned pets of Wharton County.  Since we were formed in 2008, we have:

  • Saved over 4,700 dogs & cats ~ our goal is 1 life per day
  • Fixed more than 1,600 personal pets & community cats through our Spay-Neuter & Trap-Neuter-Return Programs.

The proceeds from Waggin' Tails will help save more Wharton County homeless dogs & cats.
