The kennels at the Amarillo SPCA are getting very full.

Many of the pets brought to the shelter were gifts given at Christmas where the recipient has decided they cannot properly provide for the animal.

The SPCA recommends discussing the gift of an animal to a recipient to determine if the gift of a dog or cat is appropriate for them.

The SPCA does offer a service where you can take an animal and if after a week if you decided the animal is too much for you, you can bring them back to the shelter.
