Thanks to supporters to the ASCPA, 2009 was the best year on record for the tens of thousands of animals nationwide who were touched by your generosity. Each time a contribution is made to the ASPCA, the donator helps homeless, abused or neglected pets in every state. Here are some of the ways support from our kind contributors made a difference in 2009:
- Contributions were essential in helping us award nearly 550 grants to shelters, rescues and animal welfare organizations to fund large-scale seizures of animals, disaster recovery and preparedness, and general shelter outreach like spay/neuter programs, adoptions and staff training.
- Contributions allowed the ASPCA to be on the ground in communities nationwide, rescuing animals from both natural and man-made disasters—including puppy mill raids, animal hoarding situations, dog fighting operations and other animal cruelty emergencies.
- Contributions helped us tackle pet overpopulation and take a giant leap forward in our campaign to promote spay/neuter solutions and create a nation of humane communities, where no adoptable animal is euthanized simply because of a lack of resources.
