ASPCA ; The American Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty Of Animals "Regarding Henry": A "Bergh's eye" view of 140 years at the ASPCA. "New York City, April 1866: The driver of a cart laden with coal is whipping his horse. Passerby on the New York City street stop to gawk not so much at the weak, emaciated equine, but at the tall man elegant in top hat and spats, who is explaining to the driver that it is now against the law to beat ones animal. Thus, America first encounters The Great Meddler." It was in 1863 at the Russian Court of Czar Alexander II that Henry first took action against the inhumanity towards animals. After that, en route to America, he stopped in London to crib notes from the Earl of Harrowby, president of England's Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, founded in 1840. April 10, 1866 the "Decleration of the Rights of Animals" was signed. Nine days later the law was passed and the ASPCA granted the right to enforce it. That was 140 years ago.
Henry bergh states... "Day after day I am in slaughterhouses, or lying in wait at midnight with a squad of police near some dog pit. Lifting a fallen horse to his feet, penetrating buildings where I inspect collars and saddles for raw flesh, then lecturing in public schools to children, and again to adult societies. Thus my whole life is spent."
Puppy Mills Are places wqhere dogs are kept in a single cage their entire life and are used for breeding and when they die.... ... They are discarded like garbage. Thrown away like nothing. http://www.aspca.org/about-us/aspca-commercials.html ASPCA Onyx and Breezy Shefts Adoption Center

Thousands of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are adopted out each year from the ASPCA’s Onyx and Breezy Shefts Adoption Center, named in memory of two Labrador retrievers owned by Mark and Wanda Shefts. One of the hallmarks of the New York City headquarters, the 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art adoption center was renovated and expanded in 2006. It is now capable of housing more than 300 cats and dogs in accommodations designed for their “creature comfort.” Through the ASPCA’s adoption services, 3,267 dogs and cats found new homes in 2008, a 20-percent increase over 2007. This is one of the projects the ASPCA is working on to expand their adoption process to gives more cats and dogs more lovable and forever homes.
