What is the ASPCA ?
ASPCA stands for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Who they are!
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. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.
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.”
Serving Victims of Animal Cruelty
Our bold anti-cruelty campaign includes combining our animal protection efforts with the newest technology for solving animal crimes.
The ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Center in New York City will be the very first of its kind in the world. In it, our Humane Law Enforcement department—which continues to uphold New York City’s animal cruelty laws—will work with our forensics experts to help investigate and prosecute crimes against animals.
We help educate police officers, humane investigators, veterinarians, prosecutors and judges on how to respond to animal cruelty, including assisting in cruelty case investigations.
Our animal advocates fight tirelessly on state and national levels to pass laws that protect animals.
Thanks to these guys Animals are taken out of Cruelty every day!
Help us help them have a voice!
We firmly believe that all animals big or small should NEVER be mistreated!
