The ASPCA’s mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. The ASPCA provides national leadership in humane education, government affairs and public policy, shelter support, and animal poison control.  The NYC headquarters houses a full-service animal hospital, animal behavior center, and adoption facility.
