The ASPCA provided us with an emergency grant that helped the 26 dogs we rescued from the flooding in South Carolina! We could not have done it without them. The process was user friendly, the staff was professional and a pleasure to work with.

The staff was great. I had previously worked at ASPCA a few years ago and knew the difficulty in getting pets with handicaps and deformities adopted. I had recently had one of my cats pass away, and went there looking for a " special needs" cat, knowing that he or she would fit in with my other pets. I looked at a few, but fell in love with this little Tripod. The staff was very helpful in explaining what he would need, and getting me through the adoption process. He turned out to be a great little guy. He made friends with my others quickly and is a real love bug. I was so glad I adopted him. The staff there helped me make a great choice. I highly recommend going to ASPCA to adopt. They won't rush you through a decision. They make sure you get what is appropriate for your level of experience.

I just adopted a new cat from the ASPCA van. The staff and volunteers were so helpful and friendly, and I am impressed with all the support you get for a new pet-- an info packet, collar and starter tag, dry and canned food, plus I got a great deal on a new cat carrier. He also came home w a hand crocheted blanket and two little cat toys. You can really tell that the ASPCA genuinely cares about animals and love cats!

Thanks to ASPCA NY, their spay/neutering grant to Animalkind Inc. (animalkind.info) in Hudson, NY, we were able to do 2000+ procedures for low-income pet owners in 2013. We are looking forward to do more of the same this coming year with the generous grant that the A has just awarded us for 2015-16. We are also grateful for the mobil S/N clinic which will enable us to go to farmers and low income communities--families with unneutered cats and be able to help people who otherwise will not have the means or access to take care of their animals. We are so grateful to be able to carry out this work. Thank you ASPCA NY!!!

The ASPCA is the BEST organization helping animals and organizations! Animalkind Inc. in Hudson, NY had a fire in 2012 and the ASPCA stepped in to help to rebuild our facility as well as granted us a big grant to alter pets of low-income pet owners!
In addition, a vehicle was donatated, much needed in our rural area, to transport pets of low-income pet owners to our S/N clinic at our facility! The surgical suite was equippt by another grant from the ASPCA- we would have not recovered from the tragic loss. The ASPCA ROCKS!!! Thank you for always being there for the animals in need!!!!

ASPCA is a great organization for animals who don't have home. I adopted one cat who is my love. Recently I adopted another cat who is so sweet. I strongly advise people who consider pet ASPCA is a great place to get one. Because so many lovely animals are waiting to be adopted. I promise that they will give back to you more than you give to them.
Good Luck!

The ASPCA is a very generous organization! Their understanding of the financial resources required to help animals is to be applauded. Many times, the ASPCA has fulfilled our grant request helping us succeed with our horse sanctuary. They are very easy to work with in the event you cannot complete your project on time, always eager to listen to your concerns, and are "just here to help".

We popped into an ASPCA van with adoptable cats on Sunday and ended up taking one home! We received fabulous guidance from the staff regarding food, litter, toys and everything in between - Eileen was exceptional in setting expectations and making sure we took home a cat that would be compatible with us. We have had Maisy Jade (formerly Blanche) at home for 3 days now and after meticulously following the staff's instructions, she is adjusting very well! She is playful and affectionate and we are so happy to have found a great new companion!

We are also very pleased to know that Maisy can have a free checkup at the shelter within a month of her adoption and that she was up to date on shots at the time of adoption! We are very happy with the services of ASPCA and very thankful to the staff who supported us through the adoption process. Thank you!

We visited the ASPCA in upper Manhattan and had an amazing experience. They take great care of the animals and the people coming to adopt them. The place is extremely clean, the staff very kind and knowledgeable and efficient. After being taken around to look for a new cat, we chose one and were instructed what to expect and what to do. We love our new family member.

The experience was so great we are hoping to volunteer and will definitely be donors. Thank you to the staff!

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.

My partner and I began searching for a cat in NYC in about September 2014. Before discovering ASPCA in Feb 2015 on the UES, we tried several agencies and smaller adoption operations and became quickly dismayed by the process. The fees were high, and we later learned several agencies were getting paid from NY Government, getting the cats for free, but still charging adopters. The application process was also onerous and many other aspects were shady and inconvenient. We gave up some time in November, after searching for at least a month.

The new year rolled around and we started searching again. We found ASPCA just by googling "same day adoption" and went the next day. We walked in and did some very fast paperwork but were quickly on our way to actually seeing the animals. One of the first cats we saw was this beautiful, curious 2 year-old girl. We had shown up pretty late but they let us begin the paperwork before the site closed. We returned the next day and within an hour we were leaving the site with our amazing animal. Oh, and she was completely free!
In NYC, ASPCA was easily the fastest, cheapest, cleanest adoption center, with guarantees, free check-ups, and other amenities.
I will absolutely be donating to this organization and recommending it to anyone looking for a pet for their home.

The ASPCA on 92nd Street is a wonderful place. I went two days after Christmas and the place was hopping. I was greetd warmly right away and told there would be a short delay but in the meantime I could fill out some paperwork. Before I was done there was a person assigned to help me. They asked me many good questions and reviewed my preferences before we began. The area we sat in had many cats in large rooms enclosed by glass. They were all healthy looking, had cozy beds, lots of space and toys to play with. None of the cats seemed at all agitated but were either sleeping or playing.
I had wanted a kitten but they were in short supply and before we even got to view them, I overheard that the two cats (5 months and 6 months old) in a room we were passing needed to be placed in homes with at least one other cat. Since I had another cat at home, I asked to see these two young cats. One was very shy and I was told she'd need to be handled very gently and might take a long time to warm up. I saw her and fell in love and that was that. They sent a behavioralist out to talk to me before they would consider placing this cat in my home. I was impressed that they knew their animals so well. The cat is now living with me. It's one week now and she does hide but she comes out and plays, eats well, loves the other cat, and will occassionally sit next to me on the couch.
I am very happy with this beautiful little cat and very impressed with the care and concern given to her and all the others at the ASPCA facility. What a wonderful organization.

I went the day after Christmas 2014 to adopt a kitten. From the moment I walked in there were several things that impressed me: the cleanliness, the staff, and their genuine need to make a perfect match. A volunteer immediately greeted me and within seconds I was filling out a survey to try and make the perfect match between the type of home the pet would be going in and the pet to make the pieces work. After filling out the appropriate paper work, we were escorted through the various rooms based on whether or not we would be adopting a single pet or a couple. As soon as we met T Jay, our new kitten, we KNEW this was the one. I am happy to say within just a few days, he has made a happy adjustment to our home. Thank you ASPCA for your love and care. I will forever be indebted to you!

my first job in an animal shelter was with the ASPCA a few decades ago. i was enthralled with its founder HENRY BERGH. i even read and collected all the books about him! he is a fascinating character one you would truly love. he confronted a lot of cruelty in nyc in the late 1800's. its a part of history in the annals of nyc lore. as i am the only donor that goes to their yearly meeting, i can tell you the ASPCA is doing HENRY'S work, and he would be proud of them!

The ASPCA is the epitome of excellent non-profit work, and their grant channel is exemplary. The online application is complete and wonderful to navigate. It's so much easier than traditional paper applications, and you can upload your documents directly. However, the personal essence is not lost, as communication from and with the grant personnel is open and friendly. They truly WANT to help you to help the animals, and their inquiries are reasonable and justified. We are thrilled to be able to continue our work with horses thanks to another grant from the ASPCA. Approval from them also creates an excellent reflection to other benefactors when we are being considered, and we appreciate their vote of confidence. Millions of lives saved thanks to the ASPCA. Proud to be a supported charity, and a personal adopter :)

For a second time we have adopted a cat from the ASPCA and each time it went very well. From the professional and caring staff who showed us specific cats with the criteria we had in mind, to processing all paperwork in a timely fashion, it was a very good experience. This time we wanted to adopt a healthy, sweet, senior cat as a new companion for our cat at home but we wanted to adopt one that had an especially hard past, so we could give her a loving home and a bright future for the rest of her life. We found it in Joya (formerly Popple). I can highly recommend to look for an adoptable pet at the ASPCA.

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.

Spontaneously here on a Saturday looking for a kitten. There were a ton of people in the waiting room but they got everyone in pretty quick. The forms to fill out where not terrible at all and they really accommodated me when I didn't have my lease with me as proof of address. My Chinese food receipt from the night before and a fedex email was good enough! Everything was so clean and the people were so nice. Very patient with me and my decision and never tried to sway me one way or the other. I ended up coming home with the most adorable little rambunctious kitten. He has been sneezing a bit and the animal hospital was very patient on the phone with me as I probably seemed so paranoid. Great experience and would definitely do it again.

I have been wishing to adopt a cat for some time. I tried many other places such as Petco, local cat adoption centres and emailed many people from PetFinder.com.

For every single person I emailed, there seemed to be an extensive amount of application filling in to do, references to provide and the Foster carers of the cats I was wishing to give a better life to seemed hesitant and 'moody' when I would tell them I wished to adopt a certain cat. I'm sure this is because they get shifty characters and want the cats to go to good homes, but it did put me off adopting a cat. I have had cats for years and all of those cats were rescued. I was more than experienced for adopting.

My boyfriend saw a certain cat called "Keenu" online and said he really liked her! I saw a flyer in a local Thai Restaurant saying about the cat adoption event van that would be parked in my neighbourhood. I went along and walked on the bus and this certain cat was perfect. She responded to me straight away, was rolling all over my hand, licking me and nudging me, I looked at her name and no doubt was "Keenu" what are the chances!!!!
I adopted her within the hour, paid an extremely small fee of $75 (which is amazing considering that covered all vaccinations/spaying and so on...) I also bought her a cat carrier that was available on the van for $30 (Keenu is a very large cat so I had no choice haha!). They then set up her microchip with my address and I took her home shortly after.
Keenu has been an absolute gem, frightened at first hiding under the bed. But after a day she was sleeping next to me, running to meet me at the door and charming all of my guests. At the moment she is sleeping on my foot!

The whole process was seamless and exciting. One I will cherish forever!
Thank you ASPCA for my beautiful (large) kitty!

Today, our organization, Wyoming Untrapped, received an acknowledgment from the ASPCA that we qualified for a grant to which we had applied. We are delighted! We've been working 10 hours a day for months, it seems, with only one part time staff. We have a long list of goals to reach our mission to create a safe and humane environment for people, pets and wildlife, through raising awareness and trapping regulation reform in our state of Wyoming. But with our growing list of supporters and partners, we will get there - FOR WILDLIFE.

I went to the 92nd St ASPCA to adopt a cat. The staff member who took us around the center was extremely well informed about the animals, listened to our preferences and told us the personalities of every cat we looked at. She was exceedingly patient with us (picking a new family member is a tough decision!) and helped us find the perfect new pet. Since the cat was 3 years old the adoption fee was waived, but we received an engraved ID tag and collar, cardboard carrying case, voucher for a vet visit to use within the next month, some dry and wet food, and a big packet of information to help us care for her. The cat was spayed, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. I called a few days later with a concern about my cat's behavior, and the staff member was extremely reassuring and helpful. We received AMAZING service and I was blown away by how much they clearly care for the animals in their care. The support they offer new pet parents is absolutely wonderful!

My girlfriend and I decided to get a cat, and ended up adopting a pari of kittens so they'd have each other to hang out with. All of the volunteers and staff were very friendly an knowledgable, and it was clear that the organization works in the best interest of the animals in mind. The facility was clean and bustling with pets-to-be.

Advice and guidance on how to raise the cats was readily given, and our many questions were answered. Our little ones were already vaccinated and fixed, plus the ASPCA gave us a few day's worth of the food the kittens were already used to, as well as collars and tags to ID both of them.

We walked out with two mewing little ones, excited to give them a home.

This is copy of a review I just posted to Yelp.

Had a wonderful experience adopting from here. The facility is very clean compared to other shelters we visited, and the volunteers and staff all very friendly, patient, and informative. It was such a pleasure to be able to adopt a cat without the grilling process at many shelters. Don't get me wrong - we do everything we are supposed to: no clumping clay litter, wet food, no declawing, no open windows, etc.

As someone else wrote, it is definitely quieter during the week if you can manage to make it to the facility during regular work hours. As an added bonus, cats over one year adopted on a weekday are free! And at all times, cats over three years are free!

They also supply, at no cost to you: a cardboard carrier, a few days' supply of food, microchipping, their vet records of immunizations and FeLV/FIV results, and a collar and engraved ID tag in the color(s) of your choice. You are entitled to a free follow-up vet visit at their hospital within 30 days of adoption, although the location and hours for that were too inconvenient for us.

DEFINITELY would recommend this place to anyone considering adopting, either a cat or a dog.

True Blue Animal Rescue is a 501c3 non profit. We started working with the ASPCA when we needed emergency hay money to to a drought. We received that funding and were able to feed our rescue horses through the drought. We have also attended ASPCA workshops and learned invaluable information about how to develop a stronger and more professional rescue. We just received a grant to help us send our rescue horses to a trainer. The ability to pay for some of our horses to be trained will help us find more homes for them. The ASPCA makes grant writing easy and offers funding to help with the needs of animal rescues like ours. Thank s to the ASPCA we can help more animals!
I love that they take the time to get to know the organizations that they help and even did an on sight inspection. The tips they have given us is invaluable!

I had to put my 15 yr love mini poodle to sleep last fall and was now ready to get a new companion. Refered to ASCPA by a friend. It was a very positive experience. The staff was very professional and caring. Everyone was patient and took the time to answer my questions and to keep me informed. The day I met Klondike I had ample opportunity to interact with him. On the day I picked up Klondike the staff again took time to explain things to me and gave me time to make sure he was ready to venture out to his new home. It was quite evident that the entre staff was dedicated to insuring the animals under their care were properly placed in appropriate homes suited for their needs.
I highly recommend this organization to others looking to Adopt new pets.

In the past, all my cats were street rescues, so I got what the universe gave me. This time I wanted a companion for a lonesome cat (his companions had passed on to kitty heaven) and so I decided to go to the ASPCA. While the questions asked initially made me feel like I didn't know about cats, in actual fact they were more about finding out who I was and what kind of cat suited the space I would introduce them to. The staff were all terrific and i have appreciated the follow-up calls and suggestions for acclimating the cats together (ultimately I adopted 2 within a short space of time from each other). I am so glad to be a new mommy and learn about these two new entities. The process was thorough but efficient, The center was clean and everyone was in a good mood and helpful. Thank you ASPCA. You do a terrific job.

I am a volunteer, long time supporter/contributor, and recent adopter. I have learned so much about how to care for and train animals so that they have the best chance to find a forever home. The shelter is clean, well staffed, bright and cheerful. The animals who are lucky enough to be there receive everything they need. Volunteers are given excellent, comprehensive training. As an adopter, I had a great experience with the adoption counselors and feel supported by the whole organization to make the adoption successful.

My husband and I met our dog at the ASPCA shelter in August. It was love at first sight! Due to some of her health conditions, we fostered her until she was healthy and we could officially adopt her. Everyone at the ASPCA was incredibly helpful, from the adoption coordinator, to the vet, to the behavior specialist. The amazing staff at the ASPCA gave me and my dog all the guidance and help we needed. We are so happy to have such a sweet, cuddly and playful dog in our lives! Thank you ASPCA!

I represent the Meigs County Humane Society (MCHS), a 501c(3) animal welfare organization founded in the early 1970s, in Pomeroy, Ohio. The MCHS has no shelter of our own but members work closely with the Meigs County Dog Warden disseminating vouchers for low-income citizens to have pets sterilized, offering mobile clinics, and working to upgrade the shelter itself. This part of Appalachian Ohio is highly impoverished and citizens in this county can offer little help, for their money is spent first on food and shoes for their children. So the MCHS focuses on finding funds for helping poor families spay and neuter their pets, securing funds for our pet food bank for low-income petowners, and providing emergency veterinary care for poor pet owners. But we are limited by lack of funds.

If it had not been for the New York-based ASPCA grants that we have received--for hay for horses during the summer drought last year, pet food for the petfood bank, and most recently funds to help train the dog warden--we would not be able to help the animals of this county as much as we have. We, for example, have fewer litters to worry about, we have better fed horses, and we are well on our way to professionalizing the shelter and its personnel. We have so appreciated the generosity and advice from ASPCA advisers and greatly benefited from the funding we have received. I have dealt productively with ASPCA personnel in several departments by e-mail and phone by people who are most anxious to assist me.

Absolutely fabulous experience picking up my precious new cat. From the desk staff to the volunteer to the Veterinarian, every single person in the organization was kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. I will tell all my friends to adopt from the ASPCA.

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!

We would like to thank the ASPCA Equine Fund for the grant to help us feed the horses in our rescue program, many of them emaciated and in rehab to gain their health back. This grant will go a long way to help us accomplish that goal. Christine Griffin, President Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc.

We werer looking for a kitten for our family and had a really hard time going through other rescue organizations. There were a lot available on line and then after getting in touch with them, they never seemed to have one when we were in contact. I called the ASPCA and asked if they had any and was told that they did. We went in, were greated promptly and kindly and were introduced to a number of potential adoptees. We chose one, did some paper work and now have a lovely, healthy new member of the family.

The ASPCA has been great about supporting the Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota. We asked for support for veterinary costs on August 29, 2013 and about a month later we received a call from Justine at the ASPCA concerned about what we were doing and wanting to help us help our dogs. On October 3, 2013 the ASPCA offered us a grant. Thank you ASPCA from me and all our volunteers at Shih Tzu Rescue of Minnesota!!!

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.
