Who we are

The mission of the MSPCA-Angell is to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.

The MSPCA-Angell is a national and international leader in animal protection and veterinary medicine and provides direct hands-on care for thousands of animals each year. Founded in 1868, we are the second-oldest humane society in the United States. Our services include animal protection and adoption, advocacy, humane education, law enforcement, and world-class veterinary care.

The MSPCA-Angell is a private, nonprofit organization. We do not receive any government funding nor are we funded or operated by any national humane organization. The MSPCA-Angell relies solely on the support and contributions of individuals who care about animals.

What we are all about

The MSPCA Animal Care and Adoption Centers take care of and find homes for thousands of homeless and unwanted animals each year. We care for dogs and cats, as well as rabbits, guinea pigs, and many other small animals. We also try to help people who own pets to care for them by teaching them and answering questions on dealing with wildlife and the best way to keep their pets happy and healthy.  We even have school for dogs to come to!
