Facts about Ember

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
I had a hard start in life. I was born to an outside only mom and we really didn't have a family. Some nice people started feeding us and then they picked me and my siblings, Spike and Melody, up and took us to a place to be "fostered". I was scared at first and then I realized there was food and toys and the people were really nice. I still get a little afraid when I am in a new situation but only for a little while. Once I'm sure it's safe, I come out of my shell and it's play time. I enjoy petting too but the way to my heart is through toys and tasty wet food. Of course, if you put me in your lap and pet me, I'll start purring up a storm to let you know I like it.

About Central Texas SPCA

About Our Shelter...

The Central Texas SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a private nonprofit 501(c)3 non-euthanasia (no-kill), limited intake animal shelter, established in 1988. We provide shelter, food, medical care, and adoption services for homeless and abandoned dogs and cats. These services are funded solely by private donations and adoption fees. We receive no government funding and are not contracted as animal control with any local municipality or county. We accept owner release animals in addition to rescuing from local "open-door" (kill) facilities on a space available basis.

At the Central Texas SPCA, we treat our shelter pets with the same love and care we give our own, and that means providing them regular medical and dental care, monthly heartworm and flea preventative and annual vaccinations. Our unique shelter provides a homelike environment that focuses on constantly improving our pets' mental and physical well being to ensure they remain highly adoptable and happy while waiting for their new, forever families to find them. You will not find stark metal kennels and harsh environments at the CTSPCA! Instead, you'll discover a clean, spacious, and comfortable environment. Our cats live in communal condos with poles, window ledges for lounging and catwalks to trot about their enclosures. The indoor kennels where our dogs sleep at night and stay indoors during inclement weather have warm beds to snuggle into and many toys for their enjoyment. The outdoor dog runs allow them to buddy up with their favorite canine companion, splash around in pools, toss about a ball or two, or just hang out in the shade of built-in cabanas. With supervision, shelter dogs enjoy the freedom of running off-lead individually over two fully fenced acres during the hours we are closed to the public. This attention to detail and extra effort makes the CTSPCA a happy way station on the path to Finding Forever Families (TM).

Our Adoption Process...

Thank you very much for choosing to adopt a pet from the Central Texas Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. While we wish to give every animal a good home, we do have certain guidelines which must be met. We are particular about where the animal will go and how they are taken care of. Our reasoning behind that is most of these animals have already had a rather traumatic life. Our goal is to help make the rest of their life much more enjoyable and to ensure they will be an integral part of a family. All potential adopters must come to the shelter to meet the animals and to give us the opportunity to meet you.


ADULT DOGS (6 months of age and older) = $50

PUPPIES (under 6 months of age) = $150

These fees help cover the cost of spaying or neutering, rabies shot, tests, microchipping, and other necessary vaccinations. Fees are not negotiable
