Grab an orange party hat and all the birthday candles you can find—today is the ASPCA’s 147th birthday! We’re thrilled to celebrate 147 years of our work for animals, beginning when our founder, Henry Bergh, first spoke up for animals in Civil War-era New York. Bergh, a gifted speaker with friends in high places, rallied people to the cause and succeeded in getting the New York State Legislature to pass the charter incorporating the ASPCA on April 10, 1866. Nine days later, the first effective anti-cruelty law was passed and, with a team of three, the ASPCA began working to enforce it. By the time Bergh died in 1888, 37 of the 38 states in the Union had passed anti-cruelty laws.

We’ve accomplished a great deal since then, and we’re working every day to assist animals nationwide. Help us celebrate by going orange for animals this April for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, and if you’re in New York City, keep an eye out for the Empire State Building to glow orange in honor of the ASPCA on April 11!
