ACT NOW‼️The @USDAgov has a chance to prevent animal abuse at commercial breeding facilities (a.k.a. puppy mills) but their recent proposal falls short. This proposal, together with the USDA’s ongoing refusal to make complete inspection records publicly available, raises concerns about the agency’s continued efforts to hide information about animal businesses from American taxpayers. Take action today and tell the USDA that they must do more to enforce animal welfare laws and ensure that known abusers aren’t given a free pass to profit off innocent animals: aspca.org/usda-breeders (or watch our IG Story and SWIPE UP) #aspca #dogsofinstagram

Ginny didn’t know what love was until she met Claire and Nick because she’d spent the first two years of her life suffering as a victim of dogfighting. She was rescued from a Bronx backyard on a rainy day in May 2017, tethered on a thick rope to a barrel. Also found in the backyard were seven more dogs inside of plywood boxes. Following their rescue from that deplorable situation, the 11 dogs, including Ginny, were all taken to the ASPCA Animal Recovery Center (ARC), where they were given individual treatment and time to heal. After a few weeks, Ginny was able to move to the ASPCA Adoption Center, where she was made available for adoption. It was clear that to fully move on from her past, Ginny would not only need a lot of support, but she would also need pet parents who truly understood her. “We didn’t know what type of dog we were going to adopt,” Nick tells us. “But I think when we met Ginny that day, we knew she was the one.” Watch Ginny’s Happy Tail on IGTV right now! 📺🐶 #aspca #adoptdontshop #pitbullsofinstagram #fightingchance Photo of Ginny as a flower girl courtesy of Longbrook Photography.

In December 2016, the ASPCA assisted in the rescue of 155 dogs from a North Carolina dogfighting ring. Of these dogs, one in particular went through great lengths to find her way home from North Carolina, up to the Big Apple. Her name is Franny. After her rescue in North Carolina, Franny was understandably fearful. Given her state, it was decided that Franny would do best at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (BRC), where she would be able to receive specialized training and care to help her learn that the outside world isn’t such a scary place. In her time at the BRC, it soon became clear to everyone that this former dogfighting victim was nothing but a sweetheart, with endless amounts of love to give. She just needed the right adopters to truly see her.  For some time, James W. had been looking for the right dog to join the home he shared with his girlfriend Alexandra. When he spotted Franny online, he knew there was something special about her. “I fell in love immediately,” James says. “From her bio, photos and video—she was the perfect match.” Watch the rest of Franny’s Happy Tail on IGTV, or visit aspca.org/news #aspca #fightingchance #adoptdontshop #pitbullsofinstagram

#HappyBirthday to us! We’re 153 years old today 🥳 On this day in 1866, Henry Bergh founded the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on the clear belief that all animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment and must be protected under the law. #aspca

Today is National Dogfighting Awareness Day! When federal law enforcement busts a dogfighting operation, the dogs they rescue can be held for months or years while court cases drag on. Even with the best care, many dogs suffer further as their stress and behavior issues spiral. What they need are real homes. We can help fix this problem by ensuring that dogs rescued from fighting are moved through the system quickly. Passage of the HEART (Help Extract Animals from Red Tape) Act will reduce unnecessary delays in the rehoming of victims rescued in federal cases. Help us give innocent victims of dogfighting a #fightingchance at freedom. Sign the HEART Act Petition today by visiting: aspca.org/FightingChance ❤️ (#LinkInBio!) #aspca #dogsofinstagram #pitbullsofinstagram #dontbullymybreed

Kenai and Shenandoah were brought to the ASPCA in September 2018 after they were rescued from a difficult situation. They were both shy kitties who relied on each other for comfort and support, so the team at the ASPCA Adoption Center determined that they should go home together. Kenai was also diagnosed with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which can weaken his immune system. Despite sounding scary, FIV is extremely manageable, and cats with FIV are able to live full, happy lives. To help them come out of their shells, Kenai and Shenandoah were transferred to the ASPCA Offices in Midtown #NYC as a part of our Office Foster Program – giving them the opportunity to decompress and get more comfortable with human interaction. It was around this time that Allegra D. decided to adopt a cat – so she began browsing available kitties on the ASPCA website. “I liked the idea of them keeping each other company,” recalls Allegra. “So, once I wrapped my head around adopting two cats, it was hard to let the idea go. Why not save two lives instead of one?” To read the rest of Kenai and Shenandoah’s (now renamed Hunter and Cricket) happy tail, visit aspca.org/news (#LINKINBIO) #aspca #adoptdontshop #catsofinstagram

Two years ago this month, the United States Department of Agriculture ( @USDAgov) removed inspection reports and other information about thousands of commercial dog breeders from its website. This information is vital in our efforts to monitor puppy mills and to help the animals who languish in them year after year. These reports used to be available to anyone with internet access, and suddenly they were gone. In mid-May 2018 we filed a federal lawsuit against the USDA. But why is the USDA protecting cruel breeders over the animals and consumers it is entrusted to protect? Visit aspca.org/news (#LinkInBio) to learn more and sign our petition demanding USDA give back full access to this life-saving information. #aspca #stoppuppymills #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram

Idared was brought to the ASPCA in October 2017 by the New York City Police Department (@NYPD). She had come from a home with several other dogs, and her stay at the shelter was probably the first time she had ever been alone in a space of her own. A month later, Andy L. came to the ASPCA Adoption Center and was taken on a tour by one of our dedicated volunteers. “I saw a sweet girl named Idared,” Andy recalls. “She was sitting quietly watching everyone walk by. [When we were introduced] she immediately jumped into my arms and showed interest in walking and playing with me. I think she may have chosen me and I'm very glad she did.” To read the rest of Andy and Idared’s (renamed Maddie) happy tail, visit aspca.org/news (LINK IN BIO!) #aspca #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #pitbullsofinstagram

Remember, if it’s too cold for you 🥶 it’s probably too cold for your pet, so keep your animals inside! If left outdoors, pets can freeze, become disoriented, lost, stolen, injured or killed. In addition, don’t leave pets alone in a car during cold weather, as cars can act as refrigerators that hold in the cold and cause animals to freeze to death. For more cold weather tips — watch our Instagram Story and SWIPE UP! #aspca #dogsofinstagram #pitbullsofinstagram

Can you believe this transformation? 8 year old Maddie was taken from her owner last April by the @NYPD, due to serious neglect. An arrest was made, and the case remains open. Maddie was thin, matted, had dental disease and suffered from chronic ocular changes in both of her eyes. After receiving care and treatment for over a month, Maddie was ready to move to her foster home with Linda A. In July, that foster home became permanent when Linda officially adopted Maddie. “I hadn’t considered adoption at first, but I soon realized that Maddie’s the sweetest dog on the face of the earth,” says Linda. To read the rest of Maddie and Linda’s happy tail, visit aspca.org/news (LINK IN BIO!) #aspca #adoptdontshop

The government shutdown is bad news for animals! The temporary shutdown that began on December 22 has dragged into the new year without a clear end in sight. Not only does this lapse in federal funds affect government employees and curtail important services for people—it also directly impacts animals. This includes puppies suffering in puppy mills, at-risk show horses, farm animals heading to slaughter, and wild horses and burros.

Last September, a 5 year old Chihuahua-mix was brought by friends of her elderly owner to the Veterinary Emergency Referral Group (VERG) in Brooklyn. The female pooch, called Laneya, was in deep distress. Laneya’s neck was swollen, caused by a deep wound—one and a half inches deep—that was infected and painful. When Dr. Coleman, a surgeon at VERG, clipped and cleaned the entire circumference of her neck, she discovered a black ponytail holder embedded in Laneya’s skin. The vet team then conducted a thorough examination of her entire body, which revealed another anomaly—a mostly absent tongue.  After caring for Laneya’s injuries, VERG, an ASPCA partner veterinary hospital, transferred Laneya to the ASPCA’s Animal Recovery Center (ARC). It was there that Laneya met Mariah Bullock, an Operations Manager of Medical staff at the ASPCA Animal Hospital. “We bonded right away,” says Mariah, who took Laneya for walks and spent time with her daily.

After a cat was found abandoned in a sealed bucket two weeks ago, the ASPCA is now offering a $2,500 reward for any information leading to an arrest. According to the @NYPD, the black cat was discovered on Thursday, December 13, around 7:45 P.M. in a sealed bucket on the corner of Hester Street and Centre Street near @AnimalHaven animal shelter in NYC’s SoHo neighborhood. The bucket was sealed tightly with no chance for the cat to escape. Since being found, the resilient feline, now named Charlie, received medical attention and treatment at the ASPCA Animal Hospital. Charlie has been returned to @animalhaven where they are working to prepare him for adoption. Sadly, this case follows a similar incident occurring in November of this year. Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS. NYPD Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips.
