Since 2010, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of East Texas (SPCA of East Texas) has saved the lives of thousands of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. Their mission is to improve the lives of animals, to alleviate their suffering, and to elevate their status in society. The organization provides important community programs such as their spay, neuter, and vaccination clinics, as well as their emergency community assistance for injured or sick pets of local citizens, their Animal Cruelty and Neglect Hotline, and their education and community awareness programs.

Dawn Broadstreet Adams and her dog, Abby, are active volunteers for the SPCA of East Texas, where they serve in the Adoption Center on Saturdays. Mrs. Adams also assists with visiting the homes of potential adopters, and she occasionally fosters dogs and cats preparing the animals for adoption.

“We must be the voice for these innocent animals,” she said. “If we don’t speak for them, who will?”

Through her volunteer service, Mrs. Adams sees the need for the services provided by the SPCA, but she also knows that none of these services would be possible if not for generous donors and the dollars raised through their Annual New Year’s Eve FUR BALL event to be held on Saturday, December 31, at the Hollytree Country Club in Tyler.

“The FUR BALL serves as the organization’s primary fundraiser, and this year’s theme is Party for the Animals,” Mrs. Adams said. “I encourage all East Texans to attend this fun-filled evening of dining and dancing, and join us in ringing in the New Year with great music from Downtown Fever, Texas’ premier party band.” 

Born in Lubbock, Texas, Mrs. Adams is a graduate of Carlsbad Senior High School in Carlsbad, New Mexico. She and her husband, Leon, have resided in Tyler for five years and have three dogs, Layla, Belle, and Abby, and one cat, Ziva. Mrs. Adams enjoys serving her community and caring for animals in need of a forever home. 

“The need is dire for animal rescue services in East Texas. The SPCA of East Texas is continually growing to meet the need,” she said. “Our community is also fortunate to have many local volunteers who are working to save animals in and around Tyler, saving them from euthanasia and giving them a chance at wonderful lives with loving families. Please remember to visit the SPCA’s Adoption Center to adopt your next pet.”
