The ASPCA has supported the Longhopes Donkey Shelter in many ways the past few years. They have provided us with excellent educational opportunities to help further our cause. They have provided grants for castration programs, emergency hay support and capital improvements. Their grant application is easy to navigate and their communication is responsive. We are very appreciative for their support.

I want to thank Jill Van Tuyl , Mathew Bershadker, Michael Barrett, and Adam Liebling for helping Aslan's Cats to obtain a spay and neuter grant from this wonderful organisation.

The ASPCA has helped our 501c3 organisation with grants since 2011.

We are deeply thankful to them for believing in "Our Mission " to help the forgotten felines that are diagnosed with this very debilitating disease.

We thank you all so very much and we are deeply appreciative of all your help .

In kindest regards,


Sabrina Hansen

President of Aslan's Cats.

The ASPCA has mentored our Equine adoption program www.secondstride.org in ways that have grown our program in not only animal care and guidelines but also admin and professional services, marketing, donor care, social awareness and outreach. They provide free services to us with top notch programs on things like how to write effective grants, press releases, social media use, and how to reach out and network with other like programs. The teachings have been so valuable to us and the animals we care for as well as the donations from the public we steward. The ASPCA has brought our program up to the next level. They walk the talk too... they came out and did in person site visits of our facilities, and have came to town to do educational seminars. I can't say enough good about this group of folks! They also have an impressive rung of hoops to jump through to prove the grants they give are used appropriately and in good faith.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money so they can spread even more good!

The Kent Animal Shelter in N.Y., a 501 (c) (3) organization is grateful to the ASPCA for granting the spay/neuter clinic funds to purchase much needed medical equipment. This new equipment will allow the clinic to far exceed the 4500 spay/neuters that are performed each year to help curb the overpopulation problem. Kudos to the ASPCA for their excellent work to help end homelessness and suffering.

The ASPCA has supported Harley's Hope Foundation's annual Because We CARE Pet Health Fair for three years now. Their grant goes to purchase vaccines to benefit approximately 300 dogs and cats each year who would otherwise go without preventative care. We greatly value what this organization does on behalf of animals in need and the support it provides to organizations that try to address those needs.

Applied and was awarded a grant recently to assist our Animal Shelter/Animal Control Director in attending a national conference. The process was simple and very user-friendly. Excellent organization to work with!

As the Executive Director of a small non-profit Humane Society, I am very grateful for all that the ASPCA does. They provide outstanding professional support, do excellent research that informs our programs and provide grant support that is invaluable. I really appreciate their grant process - they make it simple to apply for funds for our important work. Thank you ASPCA!

As an animal welfare administrator, I've had the pleasure to work with several ASPCA staff and every one has been very professional, friendly and helpful. They do a great job of offering monetary and educational resources through their website and grant program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask their marketing department to be more clear in their advertising campaigns.

The ASPCA wants your money....and NOT to help them care for animals or to shelter/feed/ or even rescue them! I am stick and tired of the ASPCA and other so called 'non-profit' organizations who are really all about PROFIT. If you really want to know how the ASPCA cares for animals, look no further than Animal Care & Control right down the street from the ASPCA headquarters......You see, this is the AsPCA's dirty little secret--they send all the animals they can't be bothered to care for or save down the street to be neglected and KILLED. The truth is far worse than fiction. Shame on you, ASPCA....Time to make amends for all the years of KILLING and neglect perpetrated on the animals you claim to help! Good riddance to Ed Sayres! He will be a blight on your name for a long time to come. Time for a leader who truly cares about animals, not just MONEY!
