Staged dog fights to the death. Puppy factories with overcrowded and unsanitary breeding pens. Kittens tortured for amusement. Help stop these acts of animal cruelty.
For over 150 years, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has been committed to rescuing, protecting and placing vulnerable animals throughout the entire United States. Each year, the ASPCA helps rescue thousands of animals from dangerous situations, assists in cruelty investigations and fights for stronger animal protections under the law. Buddy, was one of 367 dogs rescued from the second-largest dog fighting case in U.S. history. At just 10 weeks old, he was destined to spend his life on a chain, being groomed to fight. With the help of the ASPCA, Buddy was rescued and given a second chance at life. Buddy's story is just one of thousands of happy tails the ASPCA makes possible year after year, with the help of our generous supporters.
