Russell E. Dealey
I started giving because my family has a long history with the SPCA of Texas. My grandfather, Ted Dealey, helped set up the original Rescue Center (now Dealey Rescue Center) in 1970. Plus, I have always been more of an animal person than a people person. I continue to be involved because I am an animal lover. I am so passionate about all the different programs, especially the Cruelty & Investigations Unit. Whenever there is a natural disaster or a large seizure comes in, I make sure to give.
Planned giving is very important. I urge those that are considering it to DO THEIR RESEARCH. Take the time to learn more about the Legacy Society, as well as the many programs the SPCA of Texas has to offer. And lastly, get involved! I try to get to JRJ a couple days a week to walk some dogs. It's nice to know that our support will help fuel the SPCA of Texas's mission long after our time.
