Who We Are
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.
The ASPCA Adoption Center has hundreds of cats and dogs awaiting adoption right now. In most cases, you can meet your new friend and take him home the same day.
The ASPCA Adoption Center is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. and Sunday from 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. To allow us to finalize your adoption process in the same day, please make sure you arrive at least two hours before closing.
