Your Purr-sonal Assistants Are Here to Make You Smile!

April 2, 2020

While we all grapple with new realities during the COVID-19 crisis, the ASPCA is committed to supporting our nation’s vulnerable animals, pet parents in need and animal welfare groups. And as we’re spending more time at home, we realized that we have some pretty special souls by our sides who have always been there through thick and thin—our pets! 

Our furry friends have seen us through so much, and as so many of us are now experiencing prolonged periods of time with them, and possibly working from home, we wanted to share some ASPCA purr-fessionals doing…whatever it may be…that they do best! Enjoy these animals as they “help” their humans at home. We’re sending pawsitivity and plenty of puppy love to all during these challenging times.
