Join the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and animal lovers across the country in the celebration of the ASPCA’s many victories in the fight against animal cruelty during Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. The ASPCA asks supporters to recognize their life-saving efforts and “go orange for animals” by wearing orange (their signature color) and dressing their pets in orange attire. Go to the ASPCA on line store to purchase special orange apparel for you and your pets – dog collars, bandanas, shirts, jackets, hats, scarves and umbrellas.
In November 2011, the Humane Society for Greater Savannah (HSGS) in Savannah, Georgia won a $25,000 ASPCA Community Engagement Award for doing the best job of getting the local community involved in saving animals. HSGS more than doubled the number of animals saved (from 325 to 719) over a three-month period. Click here to read the ASPCA Press Release.

About the ASPCA (from the website)
“Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is ‘to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.’ The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide.” Click here to read more about the ASPCA
