SPOT MISSION STATEMENT
Educate the public on the plight of abandoned pets and to provide humane care, treatment and suitable homes for animals without owners.
....casually called SPOT or WCSPOT. SPOT is a support system for persons who choose to rescue animals in Wharton County. SPOT has rescued, cared for and placed more than 1700 animals since its beginning in April 2008. In addition, food and veterinary services have also been provided for many others whose owners needed help in caring for them.
SPOT does not have a facility, therefore, the organization relies upon memberships, contributions, foster homes and volunteers. SPOT wants very much to work with person who rescue stray animals however the demand is much greater than available resources. As a result, SPOT asks people to consider the following guidelines:

Dr. Amber Rachelle Hensarling was born and raised in Wharton, Texas. She had a genuine love for animals ever since she was a young girl. Her lifelong dream was to become a veterinarian. She graduated from Wharton High School in 1999 and from there attended Texas A&M University receiving both her bachelor's degree in Animal Science and her master's degree in Agricultural Education. At the time of her passing at 24 years old, she was a third year veterinary student at Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine. In May of 2007, her family was awarded her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree on her behalf. Amber served her school and community with her involvement in numerous clubs and activities. Her plans for the future were to come back to this area to work and care for the community and their animals.
It is in Amber's memory that we dedicate this SPOT TROT Event.
