Explore DEI at the A

A team of
taking action

When you join us, you're joining a broader movement to help animals across the country. You'll find us helping animals impacted by dog-fighting operations, cruel factory farming practices and natural disasters like hurricanes. We are working on a national and local level to change laws and policies to keep animals safe. We are exploring new ways to help animals heal and recover from trauma and neglect. And when we learn about a new technique that can make a real difference for animals, we're sharing it with the field.

Hear from our team members

The A stands out in almost every area of animal welfare, but especially in the way we empower our employees. They empower us to elevate our work through innovation and beautiful collaboration with our team members. The A is the only organization I have ever worked for that closely relates to and holds high the core values I hold close to my heart.

— Relocation & Placement Team Member

The people I've worked with over the years are compassionate about their work, but they are also kind to each other. I love that. It always comes back to the people. We love to celebrate wins, celebrate milestones, learn new things and take care of the animals! Over the two decades I've been here, the investment in our managers and the continued training and support are such a breath of fresh air.

— Kitten Nursery Team Member

The ASPCA does a phenomenal job of making a very large organization feel very connected, accessible and inclusive.

— Cruelty Recovery Center Team Member

We are much more than a nonprofit focusing on animal welfare, we are a robust organization taking innovative and actionable steps to improve the lives of animals. From the work done in CVCs to legal advocacy, the ASPCA has proven to be a worthwhile and effective organization. Knowing that I was working for a good cause was important to me but knowing that the work I am doing has a tangible and meaningful impact on multiple levels is incredible.
