2014 Changemaker Nomination: ASPCA

Congratulations to ASPCAwww.aspca.org, nominated by a Chocolate Lover like you!

Here’s what Nancy has to say about this fearless organization:

“They do a superior job of preventing cruelty to animals, as well as offering lower cost veterinary services to low income families with pets, and rescuing animals in distress. They are Worthy!”

A little more info:

11_ASPCA_logo“We believe that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law.

Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” While there are SPCAs and humane societies all over the country, the ASPCA is not directly affiliated with them. However, the ASPCA works nationally to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with many shelters across the country.”
