There is a new organization in Lubbock that is hoping to prevent cases of animal cruelty and help local animal shelters find homes for their dogs.
The organization is called the South Plains Society of Prevention to Cruelty to Animals.
They are using social networking to feature animals at various shelters that need a home.
One of the founders of the organization, Jolynn Payne, says they are already off to a good start.
"Right now we are helping Lubbock Animal Services with networking the dogs they have for adoption. Just this week we have networked several dogs. Seven have been adopted this week because of our networking."
The SPCA is still looking for volunteers. If you would like to help, you can call (806) 445-6317.
You can also find them on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/SouthPlainsSpca.
