        The ASPCA is an organization for animal welfare. This organization helps keep animals out of puppy mills, dog fighting, and other cruelty related situations.They also provide health care and rehabilitation for sick and injured animals, find new homes for animals who need them,respond to emergency situations in times of disaster, and work with all levels of the government to get stronger laws for the protection of animals.

         The ASPCA was the first humane society to be established in North America, and remains one of the largest in the world today. The headquarters are located in New York. The organization was founded in 1866 by Henry Bergh “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States," to put it in Bergh's own words.

The ASPCA has saved thousands of animals, and continues to save more every day. In 2016 alone, the organization rescued or assisted 11,503 animals, had 4,290 adoptions from their adoption center, granted 14 million dollars to animal welfare organizations, and spayed or neutered 85,151 animals. All of these contributions come together to help save the lives of thousands of innocent animals.
