DO NOT take your pet to Ellis County SPCA before finding out all required info. They neglected to tell me all the added costs and procedures that would be done to my dog for a spay/neuter. I agreed and set up an appointment for my dog to be spayed, and put down a $20 deposit. I asked beforehand about all info about my dog so I would be well informed.

- General Info:
- 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 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 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. 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: No Kill shelters limit the type and number of animals that they take in based on their adoptability and space available in their facility. Animals that are turned away from these types of shelters must still go somewhere. Every animal shelter must do some euthanasia of animals that are sick, aggressive or hurt. We want to help the MAJORITY and cannot limit ourselves to which homeless animals are brought to us. To help pay for overhead of $250, 000 annually and to keep our facility open, we current hold two contracts with Ellis County Sheriff's office and the City of Ennis. We receive over 400 strays monthly from those contracts alone. We do not set a maximum amount of time we will keep an animal up for adoption. Decisions about euthanasia are based on the adoptability of the animal and the space available to humanely house the animal at the shelter. Rather than setting a time limit, we strive to ensure that each animal remains healthy and adoptable. If the animal becomes stressed, aggressive, or sick at the shelter, or if space becomes a problem, euthanasia may be considered. It is estimated that animal shelters care for between 68 million dogs and cats every year in the United States, of whom 34 million are euthanized. There are simply not enough responsible homes for all of these wonderful, innocent animals. At this point in time, it would be impossible to humanely house every unwanted animal in the United States.
