Pop a candle in your dessert, give your pet a hug and join us in celebrating the birthday of ASPCA founder Henry Bergh! Born in 1813, Bergh dedicated his life to advocating for the protection of animals and in 1866 founded the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. How great is that?
