When Valerie Jones became an empty nester, she knew she wanted to spend her newly acquired free time volunteering and giving back. After almost a year of research, she fell in love with the mission of the SPCA of Texas, the private and independently funded nonprofit that provides love and care to homeless and neglected animals. Through training classes, Jones learned to assist in the surgery room, work with behavior training and provide excellent foster care.
“It’s probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life,” she says. “I’m an animal lover, and all of their training and the way they treat their animals is so positive and loving.” The SPCA strives to give each animal the attention it deserves. Jones is a shining example of a heart truly dedicated to helping those who cannot speak for themselves. spca.org
