Founded in 1902, the mission of the SPCA of Tompkins County is to protect companion animals. We are the first open-admission, no-kill shelter in the country dedicated to preventing animal cruelty and overpopulation. not only do we steward animals, but the environment as well. our “green” shelter, known as the Dorothy and Roy Park Pet Adoption Center, was LEED- Certified Silver in 2004—the first shelter to achieve this status in the united States. our best practices in shelter operations and programs serve as effective examples for other shelters across the country striving to achieve no-kill status. We strive to foster a community in which the need for sheltering abandoned, neglected and homeless and abused animals is diminished; and we work ceaselessly to place medically and behaviorally healthy, treatable or manageable animals in loving homes. We provide leadership in cruelty investigation initiatives, educational outreach, and pet population control. We promote responsible pet stewardship by providing behavioral issues-counseling as needed for adopted animals and their owners, as well as behavior training for shelter dogs to increase adoption rates and ultimately nurture and enhance the human-animal bond.

Casa de Esperanza de los Ninos strives to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect for at-risk infants, children and their families by providing comprehensive residential and family support programs that transform people and communities. Kathy Foster founded Casa de Esperanza de los Ninos in 1982 when she learned of the death of a toddler due to abuse by his mother’s new boyfriend. Kathy was so moved that, with a meager $500 donation, she rented a home, received an Independent Family Foster Home License, and began providing emergency foster care for children in crisis. This began a lifelong dedication to ensuring that children at risk were kept safe from abuse and neglect, and Casa de Esperanza was formed. For forty years, Casa de Esperanza has provided safety for more than 6,500 abused, neglected and at-risk infants and young children in the greater Houston area. Casa de Esperanza focuses on children in the most vulnerable age group, newborn to six years old, who are most at-risk for abuse and neglect and who cannot speak for themselves. From the first house in Houston’s Third Ward, Casa de Esperanza has grown into a trauma-informed, holistic program with a gated neighborhood of 10 homes near the Texas Medical Center and numerous community foster families, providing a comprehensive continuum of care for children and families in need.
