Company Overview

We Are Their Voice
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world.

Our organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and are proud to boast more than 2 million supporters across the country.

Our Culture & Core Values

At the ASPCA, we pride ourselves on being a respected leader for the protection and welfare of animals, and we offer our employees an inspiring, collaborative, entrepreneurial and fun working environment. Our talented and diverse group of over 1,000 employees across the country has deep knowledge, skills and passion for the animals we serve and protect.

The ASPCA’s mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh in 1866, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” We seek outstanding candidates who are dedicated to that mission and embody our core values.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The ASPCA was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment by humans. Acting effectively on that belief requires a commitment to fostering a collaborative and compassionate culture and to principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We welcome all voices to participate in our advancement of these values in the interest of working together to improve the lives of animals in need.

Our impact on animals’ lives across the country is directly tied to the contributions of our people. And our impact is elevated substantially when all members of our staff, our partners, and our communities are seen, heard, and included. Each of us brings a unique and rich perspective to our work, and listening to, collaborating with, and learning from those diverse perspectives will enable us to move further and faster toward the ASPCA’s vision – that all animals live good lives; valued by society, protected by its laws, and free from cruelty, pain and suffering.
