September is National Preparedness Month, and we’re helping pet parents get ready to face a natural disaster or emergency before it strikes. Here are three things you can do this month to help your pets weather a storm.
When a mini dachshund named Aaron was surrendered to the ASPCA, he had a whole host of behavioral and medical problems. We knew he would need a patient adopter willing to earn his trust, and fortunately, a lifelong dachshund-lover was up for the challenge.
ASPCA volunteers give their time and love to animals in our care, and we rely on them to help with many aspects of our shelter operations. If you’re thinking of joining our volunteer team, read up on the requirements, opportunities, and application process now.
What should you do if you come across a stray animal? If you find a lost cat or dog, it’s best to take the animal to your local shelter. Wildlife rehabilitators will help in the case of an injured or orphaned bird, squirrel or rabbit.
We are excited to announce the three finalists for the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge’s Community Engagement Award. Three shelters are in the running to win $25,000 in grant funds from the ASPCA due to their outstanding efforts to engage their communities during the three-month contest.
