Across the nation, many people are very interested in making sure animals are spoken for when they can't defend themselves. There are a number of organizations that constantly strive to fight for animal rights, as well as ensure that each and every critter has a loving home they will be safe in.
One of the biggest corporations like this is the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The group recently announced that it gave $8.9 million in grants during the first half of 2013.
This money went to various aims - for instance, 379 of the receiving charities focusing on outreach programs received a total of $3.3 million. Moreover, 170 spaying and neutering initiatives across the United States were given more than $2.4 million in total.
"It is an honor to contribute to the programs that are bringing us that much closer to this goal," ASPCA Vice President of Grants Management Michael Barrett explained.
The ASPCA was formed in 1866 and was the first humane society created in the United States. It's now grown to be one of the largest organizations of this type in world, as more than 1 million Americans support the group.
