Facts about Marlo

Marlo is a very pretty, short-haired Border Collie mix.  Marlo's owner brought her to us for help in finding a new home. Marlo is now about 4-4 1/2 yr. old. Marlo is very sweet but she is SHY GIRL!.  This is quite common in Border Collie behavior.  Marlo needs to have several visits at the shelter from interested parties before going home so that she can begin the bonding process. Because Marlo has a shy nature, we believe she will be best in a quiet, adult environment. Marlo is a DEAR SOUL.  Please make sure you have lots of gentleness and affection for Marlo. Because she came to us as a young dog, Marlo will need supervision in house training. We recommend crating at night and when she is home alone in the day (in the beginning).  If you are interested in Marlo, please call the Amarillo SPCA at 806-622-0555 or visit the shelter at 11901 S. Coulter.

About Amarillo SPCA

About Our Shelter...

The Amarillo SPCA is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. We operate solely on donations and fundraisers.

Presently, we operate a shelter for dogs and cats. We have approximately 100 animals housed at the shelter and in foster care.

One of our main concerns is pet over population. It is important that the public be educated about the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. It is also our goal to make sure every animal that is adopted from the SPCA is sterilized before going to a new home.

We receive calls daily from people who request help with their animals--either needing to give them up or asking for help with food and medical needs. We help whenever we can, but financially we're not able to help often.

We have grown to the extent that volunteers alone cannot provide necessary hours for operating the kennels. We have a shelter manager and other part time employees for the care of the animals and maintenance of our facility.

Costs for our facility include payroll for these employees, good quality food for the animals, heat and air conditioning, medical treatment for sickness or injury. Additional costs for the animals always include vaccinations, deworming, microchipping and sterilization before leaving the shelter to go to new homes. Our vet bills are high and frequently expenses are far more than the adoption fee of $100. Therefore donations are hugely appreciated! We look forward to your contribution and particularly to your interest in one of our dogs or cats as a permanent companion.

Thanks so much, Amarillo SPCA
