As an ADVOCATE: Support the cause…

We Are Their Voice

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world.

Our organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and are proud to boast more than 2 million supporters across the country.

The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.”

Be a DONOR: Show that you care…

For over 150 years, the ASPCA has worked tirelessly to put an end to animal abuse and neglect. We are a national leader in animal rescue, protection and placement, and your tax-deductible donation will help fight cruelty and make a life-changing difference for animals across America. Thank you for making the ASPCA and the animals we serve a part of your life.


  • Donations at specified amounts are designated and you may customize your gifts. Recurring gifts are encouraged, Memorial and Tribute gifts are welcomed.
  • Donate your car: You can donate any car, truck, RV or boat—in any condition and from any location—to help us save animals and get a tax deduction at the same time! It’s quick, easy and an all-around win-win giving opportunity.
  • Hosting a Fundraiser event: Help save more lives by putting your talents to work to raise money for the ASPCA. From a lemonade stand to bingo night to a pie eating contest and everything in between, you can host a fundraiser that works for you.
  • Matching Gifts: Did you know many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees?  And that some companies will even match to spouses and retirees?
  • Workplace Giving: Did you know that you can donate to the ASPCA seamlessly through payroll deductions? And since companies often match employee contributions, workplace giving provides you with the opportunity to directly influence your company’s philanthropic endeavors.
  • Set Up a Workplace Giving Program at Your Company: Workplace giving can help a business demonstrate community benefit, contribute to corporate social responsibility objectives, build business reputation and profile, and achieve or maintain status as a “workplace of choice.” It can also build employee morale and loyalty, and develop a corporate culture of giving.
  • Charity Lists: AmazonSmile Charity Lists is a meaningful way for you to shop and donate items directly to ASPCA. Simply explore their Charity Lists, add items to your cart, and check out – it’s that easy.
  • Wedding and Special Occasion Favors: Wedding favors are a great way to show your guests you appreciate their support on your wedding day. Instead of giving traditional favors, spread your goodwill by giving a little back to animals. It’s the ultimate way to share your love and a wonderful way to thank your guests for sharing this special day with you.
  • Planned Giving:
    • Bequest from Your Will: Including the ASPCA in your will or trust is a meaningful way to help us continue to serve animals in need. Many of our programs and services have benefitted from individuals who had the foresight to include the ASPCA in their estate plans.
    • Charitable Gift Annuity: A gift annuity is a contractual agreement in which, in exchange for a minimum gift of $10,000, the ASPCA will make payments to you, another person, or two people for life. Use our calculator to see the benefits of a Charitable Gift Annuity.
    • Retirement Assets: Retirement assets are one of the most beneficial gifts you can give to the ASPCA. These funds grow tax-free until the time of withdrawal. With the innovative use of these assets, you are able to contribute generously to the ASPCA as well as provide for your loved ones. Many taxes on these plans can be avoided or reduced through a carefully planned charitable gift.
    • Life Insurance: Life insurance is often overlooked as an asset that you can use to make gifts to the ASPCA. There are a number of ways to support the ASPCA’s many programs with an insurance-related gift.
    • Charitable Remainder Trust: A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a life-income arrangement that provides you and/or other beneficiaries with a stream of income for life or for a period of years. After the trust terminates, the principal, or “remainder interest,” goes to the ASPCA. Unlike other life-income arrangements, CRTs are separately invested and managed trusts. Please note that the ASPCA does not manage these trusts for donors.
    • Other Ways of Planned Giving: *
  • Donor Advised Funds: A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a simple way to manage your charitable giving and help save lives by recommending gifts to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) for use in its programs and services.
