Today, we filed a lawsuit against the @USDAgov in response to the agency’s ongoing refusal to release crucial animal welfare records! But why is the USDA choosing to protect those who profit from animal suffering over the animals themselves?

Last week, the ASPCA celebrated the official opening of its Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Weaverville, NC! 🎉 The BRC is the first-ever permanent facility dedicated to the rehabilitation and study of extremely fearful, unadoptable homeless dogs, most of whom are victims of cruelty or neglect.
Covering 13 acres, the BRC has the capacity to rehabilitate 65 dogs at any given time. They will be treated daily by a dedicated team of animal behavior experts implementing scientifically sound techniques to reduce their fear of people and acclimate them to real-life situations that can induce trauma and severe stress, in hopes of preparing these animals for life in a loving home.🧡 #aspca #aspcaBRC

It’s a girl! In honor of #MothersDay, we’re bringing you a very special Instagram Story — go behind the scenes at our Kitten Nursery and check out how our amazing staff of kitten caretakers act as a “mom” for the tiniest and most vulnerable felines 💕 #aspca #happymothersday

When Sweetie entered the Behavioral Rehabilitation Center program in Nov. 2017, she was extremely fearful and spent most of her time huddled in her crate. After 10 weeks of treatment, Sweetie became our first BRC graduate and was adopted by a local family! 👩🏻‍🎓💕 Check out our Story for footage from the grand opening of our new BRC facility, and watch Sweetie meet her old friends on the staff! ☺️ #aspcaBRC

Too often, dogs in shelters are euthanized simply due to lack of shelter space when, often times, many of these animals would be quickly adopted in other states or parts of the county. To help turn such statistics around, we provide targeted grant funding to shelters and rescue groups like @wagsandwalks —a non-profit adoption center in West Los Angeles that rescues dogs from high-kill shelters. Cher, pictured here, was one of those dogs. After meeting Tessa, a volunteer at Wags & Walks – the rest was history. To read their heartwarming story, and to find out how Cher is getting along with her new feline sibling, Lucy, visit (link in bio!)

Orson, Pit Bull mix (3 y/o) – Availabe for adoption from @ASPCA, New York, NY • “Orson was rescued from suspected dogfighting by the @ASPCA in January and has been hard to place. He needs an experienced owner and has to be the only animal in the house (no other dogs or cats). He’s super friendly to everyone he meets and already knows ‘sit’ and ‘down’.” Visit to learn more
