An Animal is Abused Every 10 Seconds in America

The sad reality is that an animal is abused every 10 seconds in America. 

You can help change this unacceptable reality by becoming an ASPCA Guardian. I am writing this post to join the ASPCA and Dogtime in support of this great animal welfare cause. The ASPCA Guardians are a group of dedicated friends like you who make regular monthly gifts. This level of support makes it possible for the ASPCA to reach and rescue animals in need. You will be helping the ASPCA to make a difference for animals every month of the year. This reliable income will allow the ASPCA to focus more resources on their lifesaving programs, and less on raising the necessary funds.

Please take a moment to watch this ASPCA video that was sent to me by Dog Time Media (DogTime's mission is "to keep dogs out of shelters and to help those who are in shelters find loving homes"). Watch and listen to Tim Rickey, ASPCA Senior Director of Field Investigations and Response teams at work in the field.

In 2008 alone, the ASPCA Mobile Clinic Program spayed and neutered over 23,220 animals—a 63% increase over 2007, thereby impacting the problem of unwanted offspring and pet homelessness. Let's help keep the ASPCA in the field doing what they do best, rather than having them spend their time having to raise money. To donate to the ASPCA, please click here.

You can see below what your monthly contribution will do. ASPCA members like it because it's easy to budget and it feels great to be making a difference for animals every month of the year:
  • A donation of $18/month, you can help 10 animals get adopted.
  • A donation of $20/month helps keep the ASPCA Disaster Response Trailers stocked.
  • A donation of $36/month allows 5 dogs and 5 cats to get spayed and neutered and receive vaccinations.
Please become a Guardian and join the ASPCA donations program today. To donate to the ASPCA, please click here.
