ASPCA - They Need Love, Safety and Care

ASPCA - They Need Love, Safety and Care

Everyone can benefit from a furry friend! There are likely hundreds of adoptable cats and dogs in your local animal shelters or rescues right now who would love to join your family. We understand that adopting isn't always the right fit for some people but there are other ways to give that will benefit these animals. A one time or monthly donation and even pet care product donations go a very long way. For more about how adopting a pet can benefit humans just as much as the animals, check out Improve Your Mental Health by Rescuing an Animal.


The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) holds the distinction of being the first humane society established in North America and is currently one of the largest organizations of its kind in the world. Our foundation is built upon the fundamental principle that animals deserve compassionate and respectful treatment by humans and should be legally safeguarded. Based in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a robust local presence while extending our anti-cruelty mission nationwide, earning recognition as a leading national animal welfare organization. As a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, we take pride in our extensive support from over 2 million individuals across the country. The ASPCA's core mission, articulated by its founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is "to establish effective measures for preventing cruelty to animals throughout the United States."
