ASPCA

 
The ASPCA was founded in 1866. The Society was formed to alleviate the injustices animals faced then, and we continue to battle cruelty today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse or sharing resources with shelters across the country, we work toward the day in which no animal will live in pain or fear.

ASPCA
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization
What We Do
As the first humane organization to be granted legal authority to investigate and make arrests for crimes against animals, we are wholly dedicated to fulfilling the ASPCA mission through nonviolent approaches. Our organization provides local and national leadership in three key areas: caring for pet parents and pets, providing positive outcomes for at-risk animals and serving victims of animal cruelty.
Mission
The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”
ASPCA Day
We hope you had as much fun as we did on April 10, ASPCA Day. We took the opportunity to celebrate our 142nd year of service to and protection of our four-legged friends by encouraging the nation to wear orange, our signature color, and the response was overwhelming! Down in New York City’s Union Square, we kicked off the festivities by unveiling a brand-new drinking fountain — for dogs! The X-Brothers drew a great crowd as they rocked the night away, and fun was had by pooches and pet parents alike. We had a mobile adoption van, photo booth for pets, information booths—and of course, the biggest attraction, the opportunity to meet our Humane Law Enforcement officers from Animal Precinct. The evening came to a lovely close as the sun went down over our city and we watched the Empire State Building light up orange in our honor.
Humane education
At its most basic level, humane education is about learning to care for the animals in our homes and communities. It is about fostering kindness, respect and empathy for both human and nonhuman animals, and looking after the environment and its diverse habitats. Unlike science and other academic disciplines, humane education has a philosophical component that strives to establish a sense of responsibility and make the world a better, more humane place.
