ASPCA supporters are essential in our efforts to end animal cruelty and serve as a trusted resource for pet parents. While we depend on your generosity to meet our goals, we understand that not everyone is in a position to donate to the cause.
Here are a few fun and effective ways you can make a difference for animals in need:
Still searching for that perfect gift? We’ve got you covered. ASPCA Symbolic Gifts are appropriate for any animal-lover on your list—your purchase will honor him or her by providing support to animals who desperately need our help. With plenty of Symbolic Gifts to choose from, including medical treatment for sick animals and critical care for animal victims of cruelty and disaster, you’re sure to find the perfect way to help us rescue animals in need.
This holiday season, as you search aisle after aisle for that perfect gift, keep in mind that your most important gift may be right under your nose. With one click, you can give abused animals a second chance.
Every 10 seconds, an animal is abused. It’s heartbreaking: These animals are neglected. They are scared. And they are struggling to survive.
Sure, Giving Tuesday is a pretty new concept—but we happen to think it’s also a pretty important one. The idea is quite simple: An entire day dedicated to giving back to others and getting to the true roots of the holiday season. After the mega-shopping weekend many of us just had, Giving Tuesday feels like a breath of fresh air. Here are three easy ways you can spend today giving back to animals in need.
Hug a Dog, Cuddle a Cat.Shelters across the country rely on their volunteers to help keep the animals in their care happy—and that includes some serious cuddling. Whether it’s cozying up with a puppy or taking the time to befriend a skittish kitty, a little love goes a long way when you’re a homeless pet. Changing litter boxes, filing paperwork and scooping poop, are a BIG help for shelter staff, too!
Join the ASPCA Advocacy Brigade. Help us fight to get strong anti-cruelty laws passed on federal, state and local levels as a member of our Advocacy Brigade. When you sign up, we’ll automatically send you important actions you can take. It’s a great way to give back all year long!
Become an ASPCA Guardian. Okay, you kind of knew this ask was coming, but we really hope you’ll consider it. As a non-profit, our team really depends on the small monthly gifts our members provide. They are our backbone. Did we mention you get a really cute calendar and the donation is tax deductible?
