How Many ASPCA's Are There?
How many ASPCAs are there in the United States?
There is only one ASPCA, and we are headquartered in New York City. Founded in 1866 as the first animal welfare organization in the Americas, we celebrated our 140th anniversary in 2006. Although there are SPCAs and humane societies all over the country, we are not directly affiliated with them. On a local level, we are striving to create a Humane Community in New York City, and we are active nationally, helping America’s animal population via Community Outreach, Government Relations and Humane Education.
