Founded in 1866, the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide.
According to the ASPCA, there are six to eight million pets waiting to be adopted this year — so many that 1.5 million pets will be euthanised.
