A Milestone Reached for Animals, Thanks to You

June 24, 2020

Earlier in May, we announced a goal to help at least 200,000 animals through our ASPCA COVID-19 Relief and Recovery Initiative. Although we set our sights high, we knew we could achieve it through strategic programs, hard work and the support of friends like you.

Our Relief and Recovery Initiative includes many channels for assisting pet owners and the animal welfare community, including millions of dollars in grant funding, free pet food at temporary distribution centers, a NYC-based hotline for animal-related inquiries, and more. We’re so pleased to announce that through our pet food distribution efforts alone, we’ve assisted more than 200,000 animals.

As our work in response to the pandemic continues to evolve, we anticipate reaching thousands more animals across the country. And with all our efforts, we have friends like you to thank. Your support of our emergency response, legislative work, and other lifesaving programs means the world to the animals we serve—and gives them hope in desperate times. Thank you for staying by our side, and for all you do to help the nation’s animals.
