The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. The ASPCA was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend its anti-cruelty mission across the country, the ASPCA is recognized as a national animal welfare organization. The ASPCA is proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country, and can count Nylon Fusion Theatre Company an its members among its most enthusiastic supporters.
