Television actress Sarah Hyland visited New York City this week to kick off Swiffer’s year-long campaign to help the ASPCA find homes for animals in need. On Monday, Hyland had the opportunity to interact with multiple adoptable dogs and tour the ASPCA Adoption Center.
Hyland also helped to host a pet appreciation party, which featured adoptable pets, in Manhattan on Tuesday with Swiffer and the ASPCA. There she shared her about her personal experiences with her dog Barkley Bixby by her side.
The event was a celebratory culmination of the ASPCA’s Mega Match-a-thon adoption weekend that took place from October 17-19 at shelters nationwide, and resulted in 4,865 cats and dogs finding new homes. During Mega Match-a-thon, Swiffer gifted each adopter with a new Swiffer Sweeper, and participating shelters received one of the brand’s Big Green Boxes full of its cleaning tools.
Lifestyle brand Alex and Ani and its charitable division, Charity by Design, have created a new charm design in support of the ASPCA! Part of Alex and Ani’s Charity by Design collection, the “Prints of Love” bangle features a paw print shaped charm and is available in both Rafaelian Silver and Rafaelian Gold. The ASPCA will receive 20% of the proceeds from each sale to support our lifesaving work for animals across the country.
Our long-standing supporter Fresh Step litter is ramping up its commitment to the ASPCA and shelters across the country with the launch of its Million Meow Mission to help shelter cats in need.
As part of the program, Fresh Step has revamped its Paw Points® rewards program to give shoppers the option to donate their accrued Paw Points to a local shelter or rescue organization of their choice. In turn, these shelters can redeem the points for free liter, toys and other products that help homeless cats lead happier, healthier lives.
The ASPCA Adoption Center is also eligible to receive Paw Point donations. All points will be used at our shelter and new neonatal kitten nursery, and as part of our Safety Net programs to help keep more cats and kittens in their homes, off the streets and out of shelters.
You can participate and learn how your points can make an important contribution to a local shelter or the ASPCA by visiting the Paw Points rewards page.

Here at the ASPCA, we’re of the mindset that if you love animals, you should let the world know it! We can’t think of a better way to spread the word than by taking a stroll in adorable Vans X ASPCA dog- and cat-themed shoes designed in support of the ASPCA’s life-saving work for animals.
Are you in the New York City area? Vans and the ASPCA are teaming up to host a special pet adoption event on Saturday, March 22, from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. The event, which will be held at the House of Vans at 25 Franklin Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, will feature adoptable dogs and cats from the ASPCA Adoption Center and Animal Care & Control of New York City. We’ll also have food trucks, gifts and an interactive photo booth on site. Two-legged guests of all ages are welcome to attend!
