12 Months of Giving: ASPCA

Holding a fundraiser provides a tremendous opportunity to fund a worthy cause, educate the public and help support valuable services and programs offered by various charitable organizations. Because of our unwavering commitment to our “12 Months of Giving” resolution, we will sponsor another philanthropic event to gather donations for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Our campaign will consist of staff Bar-B-Que. It will be coordinated and managed by our dedicated employees who take initiative and volunteer their time and resourceful talents to make this event a sure success. Each participant will contribute by paying $5 for their lunch and will receive two hot dogs and hamburgers along with a serving of chips and a canned drink.

Our monthly fundraising crusades create the feeling of camaraderie and mutual respect for each other as well as the charity we are helping to support. We learn about the origins of the company we donate to, their present efforts, accomplishments and plans for the future. Our main focus is to create awareness and captivate the attention of our patrons and sponsors for the future. By endorsing our chosen charities, we hope to build strong relationships with the people behind the scenes who make it all possible every day.

ASPCA has been in existence for over 140 years and is one of the most recognized and respected humane societies in the world. Planet Drugs Direct is proud to be an advocate and an active supporter of an organization that promotes kindness and anti-cruelty towards animals.

Based in New York, the ASPCA has a rich history and maintains its presence by vigorously defending and promoting animal welfare. Because of their dedication and diligence, many dog pounds have been converted into fully equipped facilities operated by knowledgeable and skilled staff trained to educate pet parents, arrange adoptions and create safe haven for many animals in distress.

Additionally, the program addresses issues such as animal hoarding, emergency care and domestic violence abuse. The team of ASPCA often provides resources for pet owners with financial or emotional issues who are unable to provide proper shelter and care for their pets. The organization also partners with the local veterinary communities to prevent cruelty and provide temporary board and care leading to adoption. Many animals are rescued from domestic violence environments and placed with loving families while their previous owners are referred to social services to obtain guidance and education in pet care.
