The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Works to Protect Animals From Cruelty

Cool Story - The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Works to Protect Animals From Cruelty

 

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (or the ASPCA) is an organization committed to preventing animal cruelty. The ASPCA was the first organization of its kind to be established, and is now one the the biggest on Earth. Those who founded the ASPCA did so with the opinion that animals deserve compassion by humans and legal defense. The nerve center of the ASPCA’s operation is located in New York City. The ASPCA is a national organization, with its programs spreading its mission nationwide, and with 2 million people providing their support. In the year 2020 alone, the ASPCA provided aid to more than 104,900 animals! 

 

The ASPCA was founded on April 10, 1866. After the founding of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (or the RSPCA) in the United Kingdom in 1824, Henry Bergh wanted to create a similar organization in America. Bergh believed that animals deserved to be treated with kindness and respect by humans. On February 8, 1866, Bergh went to Clinton Hall to plead his case. He talked about various animal rights matters, like cockfights. Bergh passed around a document called the Declaration of the Rights of Animals. After getting enough names on the Declaration, Bergh was given a grant to officially start the ASPCA. 

 

About 6.3 million animals arrive at shelters each year. These animals are a mix of strays, rescues, and surrendered animals. Though shelters try to take in all the animals they can, the fact is there are just too many animals out there. Of the 6.3 million animals that are brought to shelters each year, 920,000 are euthanized. The ASPCA has spacious, modern shelters where they rescue animals who need aid. 

If you want to adopt an animal through the ASPCA, you can find out how by clicking here:https://www.aspca.org/adopt-pet. 

 

Because the ASPCA cares about animals, they want to prevent and stop any cruelty they see. If you know anything about animal cruelty in your area, the ASPCA can help you do something. For those who live in New York City, you need to call 311 or 911 right away. Outside of New York City, you can also call 911 to report an animal cruelty incident. The ASPCA recommends including as much information in your report as possible, such as a written declaration and any photographic evidence you may have. When it comes to animal cruelty, there are certain warning signs you need to look out for. Signs of animal cruelty include untreated open wounds, infestations of insects, and severe weight loss.

Starting in March 2013, the ASPCA put a new pilot program in place at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center. The program is called ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, and it’s designed to provide socialization and behavioral skills to immovable dogs. 237 dogs graduated from the program during its first four years. The program was a great success, and a permanent building was put in place in Weaverville, North Carolina. Up to 65 dogs can be taught at the facility at a time. The program specializes in helping hard to adopt dogs become more social and not be afraid.
