The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society established in North America. Today, they're a leading voice for animal welfare in the US with more than 1 million supporters across the country. The ASPCA was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 "to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States."
One of the ASPCA’s priorities is helping pet parents care for their animal companions. They believe that pet insurance will help further this goal by making veterinary care more affordable for pet parents.
The ASPCA is also involved in many other valuable services and resources for pet parents. For instance, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center can help you if your pet ever ingests something toxic. They’ve also established the ASPCA Animal Behavior Center, Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital, mobile spay/neuter clinics, and pet loss support services.
In addition, the ASPCA is dedicated to helping at-risk animals with programs like its community partner program, which is working to put an end to the unnecessary euthanasia of adoptable pets. They also serve the victims of animal cruelty by fighting tirelessly on state and national levels to pass laws that protect animals.
