The Cost of Saving a Life

The Cost of Saving a Life

Have you ever found spare change in your couch cushions? A dollar in your laundry? Most people have. But if you’ve never held that forgotten money in your hand and thought, “This small amount can change a life,” maybe it’s time you did.

The truth is that the economics of saving a life are simpler than you may think. Just 60¢ a day can mean the difference between a lifetime of cruelty and a loving, happy home for an animal in need. Here are just some of the ways your spare change can add up in a big way:

  • $18 can feed an abandoned dog or cat for nearly three weeks
  • $25 can transport a rescued animal to safety
  • $50 can provide vaccinations for 14 homeless dogs and cats
  • $100 can help keep our disaster response team stocked with rescue supplies

And that’s just scratching the surface. Every single contribution makes it possible for the ASPCA to get animals out of danger, and with your regular monthly gifts, we can continue to reach those who are crying out for help.

So please, give a little and help save lives today. We can’t think of a better use for spare change.
