Every year on April 10, the anniversary date of the founding of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in 1866, the ASPCA celebrates ASPCA Day and encourages animal lovers of all ages nationwide to GO ORANGE FOR ANIMALS!
Going Orange on ASPCA Day is a tribute to the work of the ASPCA and a celebration of compassion and kindness for all living things everywhere. (Orange is the official ASPCA color and what better to celebrate than our love of animals?)
The ASPCA is the first and oldest humane organization in the Western Hemisphere and they need the continued support of animal lovers like you to help us spread the message of kindness and compassion across the country. They created this ASPCA Day Grassroots Kit to get you started. Please join in celebrating the work that they do and the animals that we serve by going orange for animals today!
Here's what you can do:
- Learn how you can report animal cruelty, and prevent it from happening.
