The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Presentation: Animals and You

Monday, March 31, 2008


Butcher Suite, Kessel Student Center

The ASPCA was founded in 1866 as the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. The Society was formed to alleviate the injustice and cruelty animals faced then and continue experience today. Whether it’s saving a pet who has been accidentally poisoned, fighting to pass humane laws, rescuing animals from abuse, or sharing resources with shelters across the country. The ASPCA works toward the day when no animal will live in pain or fear. Allison Zaccone, an Honors College graduate of 2005, will speak about the importance of the ASPCA in today’s world.
