Transforming Lives, One Rescue At A Time.

Blue. Zack. Spice. These are just three of the countless animals the ASPCA has saved since their founding in 1866. The first humane society in North America and one of the largest in the world, the ASPCA’s mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. Here are three amazing stories of transformations made possible thanks to the ongoing support of ASPCA Guardians:

Blue was chained to a stake in the ground, exposed and shivering in blizzard-like conditions. He was emaciated and weighed just 30 pounds when he was rescued during a multi-state dog fighting raid. Today, Blue is healthy and has been adopted into a loving home.


Spice came to the ASPCA after being confined to squalid conditions in a basement without adequate access to food or water. With the help of veterinarians at the ASPCA Animal Hospital, Spice was nursed back to health from 32 to 54 pounds. Today, he has found a forever home and loves to learn new tricks.


Zack was one of 150 dogs rescued in a puppy mill raid. He was hungry, sick and shaking when the ASPCA carried him to safety. After his rescue, Zack required surgery on his eyes in addition to extensive behavioral rehabilitation. Today, he has made a full recovery and has been adopted by a loving family.


Countless animals are still desperate for help. The ASPCA relies on continuous support to rescue victims of cruelty, abuse and neglect. For as little as 60¢ a day, you can become an ASPCA Guardian and help make a difference for animals in need—like Blue, Spice and Zack—every month of the year. Make a monthly gift today.
