ASPCA Programs

For more than 150 years, the ASPCA has been the leading voice in animal welfare, bringing the critical protection of animals to the forefront of society by providing and increasing access to vital veterinary care, rescuing animals from disasters and scenes of large-scale cruelty, pioneering innovative adoption, fostering, and behavioral rehabilitation programs, conducting critical animal welfare research, training law enforcement and shelter professionals, and advocating for more effective laws that protect dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals. The ASPCA also partners with and supports shelters, veterinarians, animal advocates and others who share its commitment to a safer, more compassionate world for animals. Every year, ASPCA work impacts hundreds of thousands of animals through direct care and supports systemic and policy solutions benefiting millions more.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Each year, the ASPCA takes on new and longstanding threats to animal welfare, including the rescue and protection of animals from cruelty, the special needs of shelter animals with medical and behavioral conditions resulting from cruelty and neglect that challenge their adoption, barriers to veterinary care in under-resourced communities, and a severe national shortage of veterinary professionals—ultimately assisting hundreds of thousands of dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals in need.

Performed by a staff of experts in their fields. the work includes large-scale field rescues, behavioral rehabilitation, community-based veterinary care, spay/neuter services, animal relocation and placement, equine rehoming, foster support, strategic grantmaking, emergency sheltering, farm animal advocacy, and research and trainings for both law enforcement and shelter professionals.

As an established national organization, we also partner with and provide training and support to hundreds of local agencies, advance animal welfare innovations, and respond immediately to animal crises across the country.

ASPCA strategy is aligned with four key priorities:

Saving and protecting animal victims of cruelty, neglect, and suffering through rescue efforts and policy initiatives

Giving vulnerable and victimized animals rescued from neglect and cruelty second chances by applying and advancing behavioral rehabilitation techniques and necessary veterinary care

Collaborating with shelters and rescues to find new homes and other lifesaving opportunities for homeless animals 

Helping pets by expanding access to veterinary care and pet care resources
