For over 150 years, the ASPCA has worked to put an end to animal abuse and neglect and to help homeless animals find loving homes. The ASPCA is a national leader in animal rescue and protection, but none of it would be possible without regular monthly gifts from ASPCA Guardians. Becoming a Guardian is the easiest, most efficient way to fight cruelty and help animals in need.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® works to save animals from dogfighting, puppy mills, hoarding and other cruelty situations. We provide animals medical care and behavioral rehabilitation, and help thousands of animals find loving homes every year. We respond to emergencies when disaster strikes, and fight for stronger laws to protect animals. When you become an ASPCA Guardian, your regular monthly gift allows us to spend less time fundraising—and more time saving lives.
Every gift saves lives. Please make a one time gift if you are not able to make a monthly commitment.
Monthly Giving is Easy
