The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first animal welfare organization to be established in North America. Today, they serves as one of the nation's leading voices for vulnerable and victimized animals. with more than 1 million supporters across the country. The ASPCA was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 "to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States."

One of the ASPCA’s priorities is helping pet parents care for their animal companions. They believe pet insurance will help further this goal by making veterinary care more affordable.

This led to the 2006 strategic partnership between our company and the ASPCA, and the ASPCA Pet Health Insurance brand. The ASPCA is not an insurer and is not engaged in the business of insurance. Through a licensing agreement, the ASPCA receives a royalty fee in exchange for the use of their marks, and is not a charitable contribution.

The ASPCA is also involved in many other valuable services and resources for pet parents. For instance, the  ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center can help if your pet ingests something toxic. They’ve also established the ASPCA Animal Behavior Center, Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital, mobile spay/neuter clinics, and pet loss support services.

In addition, the ASPCA is dedicated to helping at-risk animals in need through on-the-ground disaster and cruelty interventions, behavioral rehabilitation, animal placement, and the advancement of the sheltering and veterinary community through research, training, and resources. They also serve the victims of animal cruelty by fighting tirelessly on state and national levels to pass laws that protect animals.
