2015 Gala a Success

Over 300 compassionate and generous animal lovers came together on Friday, April 10 at The Houstonian for a glamorous evening to celebrate the accomplishments of the Houston SPCA, hear about future plans, and raise much-needed funds to support the largest animal welfare organization in Texas. The Animals’ Best Friends Gala, chaired by Zane and Brady Carruth, raised over $700,000! An extraordinary group of animal-loving “best friends” was honored including President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush, The Honorable Jessica Farrar, Doug Pitcock, Carroll Robertson Ray, and Kay and Steve Stevens. Thank you to our underwriters and supporters for helping us give orphaned, abused and neglected animals a second chance at life.
