Animal Cruelty/Humane Law Enforcement
The ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement agents inspect, rescue, and, when warranted, make arrests to protect animals within New York State. Our 19 ASPCA agents conduct investigations based on calls from the public or other humane organizations about incidents of animal cruelty, neglect, or abandonment. The uniformed and plainclothes men and women, featured each week on Animal Planet’s Animal Precinct, investigate more than 5,000 cases per year and issue summonses to or arrest more than 300 people per year. To report instances of animal cruelty in New York City, please call (212) 876-7700, ext. 4450.

Corporate Partnerships
This department develops positive commercial and promotional projects that help create funding and awareness for valuable humane programs. Corporate Partnerships manages licensing programs such as the ASPCA name and logo and the ASPCA Seal of Approval. National communications vehicles including news releases and trade events help promote these licensed properties. ASPCA officially licensed merchandise includes a variety of items for both the animal and animal lover..

The ASPCA Development department coordinates all charitable contributions to the organization and our programs and projects. Through the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations, the funds raised by the organization are vital in fulfilling the ASPCA's mission. Development is accessible by email, phone or mail for inquiries regarding ways to support the ASPCA, membership, annual reports, and other gift information.

Government Affairs & Public Policy
The Government Affairs & Public Policy department works to secure the strongest possible protections for animals on a federal level through the passage of legislation and ballot initiatives, the bringing of successful impact litigation, and the adoption of public policies that promote the best interest of animals. The department analyzes and drafts legislation and obtains sponsors for the introduction of legislation on the federal level, and works to get legislation passed in our own backyard—New York City..

Legal Department
The Legal department serves as in-house counsel for ASPCA programs and activities and does not give out legal advice to or act as attorney for outside organizations or individuals. We can, however, provide information to the general public on nationwide resources that may be helpful in resolving animal-related legal problems. A significant portion of the department's time is directed at the enforcement of animal cruelty laws and the prosecution of abuse and neglect cases within our legal jurisdiction of the State of New York. It can also provide support to prosecutors and attorneys throughout the country on significant "landmark" cases of animal cruelty.

National Outreach
Comprised of 36 full-time staff and three consultants, National Outreach team members include seasoned animal welfare professionals, veterinarians, attorneys, animal behaviorists and humane educators. National Outreach is comprised of five departments:

- Shelter Outreach
Regional Shelter Outreach managers and national advisors provide direct support to shelters, including training, materials, advice, networking and resources. NSO advisors specialize in their particular area of expertise and provide assistance to shelters across the country.

- Imagine Humane
A joint initiative of National Outreach and PETsMART Charities, Imagine Humane offers programs that develop leadership, fundraising and strategic competence.

- Legislative Services
Legislative Services writes and lobbies for the passage of animal-friendly legislation, counsels legislators, law enforcement and individuals with questions concerning animals and works with the media to publicize legislative issues.

- Veterinary Outreach
Veterinary Outreach is comprised of three veterinarians experienced in shelter medicine, veterinary forensics, animal abuse and reporting, spay/neuter programs and equine issues. They provide support to animal shelters, veterinarians and community collaborations.

- Humane Education
At its most basic level, humane education is about learning to care for the animals in our homes and communities. It is about fostering kindness, respect and empathy for both human and nonhuman animals, and looking after the environment and its diverse habitats. Humane Education promotes these principles through the distribution of materials, hands-on teacher and children’s programs, workshops and participation in educational forums.

Special Events
The Special Events department at the ASPCA coordinates fundraising events. The Annual Humane Awards Luncheon honors both local and national heroes for outstanding achievements on behalf of all animals..
