This is an amazing story about a dog named Chuck. According to the ASPCA, Chuck overcame immense obstacles to make an amazing and “astonishing” transformation.
The beautiful dog was found about 6 months ago abandoned and unable to walk at all on his hind legs because of previous fractures that he had sustained. One of the doctors from the ASPCA said he had severe and painful arthritis and atrophy of the muscles in the hips and legs due to not using them. Through a surgical procedure that Chuck had, he is now able to walk again. He may never be “normal” again, but he is able to walk and enjoy his life now. He continues with physical therapy.
The ASPCA shows an incredibly heartwarming video of Chuck’s recovery. He is always holding a chew toy in his mouth as they help him to learn to walk again – and even to run.
The ASPCA has made believers out of so many that they are a truly honorable society that helps animals. Chuck is a special needs dog and is looking for a home. If you’re interested in adopting him, please call the Adoption Center located in New York City at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120.

June 1, 2014 was the kick off of the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. Preparation took months of hard labor, effort, team work and sweat, but the Challenge is now off and running. It will last for a total of three months from June 1 to August 31, 2014. During that time, 50 different animal shelters will compete against themselves to break their own adoption records! This means that they will attempt to save and adopt out more dogs and cats than they did in 2013. The winners and finalists of this competition will win grant money ranging from $5,000 to $100,000. This is an amazing challenge with incredible rewards for everyone!
During this first week of the Challenge, the shelters will be hosting special adoption events with great food, games and excitement. The guests of honor will be the adorable animals that will be up for adoption to worthy homes. PetSocial.org is asking to please support your local competing shelter by attending their events and even adopting if you can.
Thank you for supporting PetSocial.org and being a part of making our site a successful. We couldn’t do it without you.
It was on May 6th that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) announced that they were giving an exorbitant amount of funding to help animals in need in the city of Los Angeles CA. It was a multi-year effort and the announcement came with incredible excitement for animal advocates. (more…)
In 1866 on April 26th, a man named Henry Bergh rescued a horse from being beaten by his cart driver. This resulted in the very first successful arrest for the abuse of a horse. Many may not realize this, but horses are extremely intelligent and very sensitive animals. The ASPCA has played a very large part in the protection and advocacy for horses by rescuing them and assisting in domesticating those who are wild. They do this through legislation and targeted grants. (more…)
Did you know that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has a Behavioral Rehabilitation Center that helps animals to recover from many distasteful and even traumatic situations in which they have been placed? The ASPCA is a non-profit organization with the mission to help prevent any kind of cruelty towards animals. It has based out of New York City since 1866.
The organization’s Behavioral Rehabilitation Center is located in Madison NJ and works very hard to treat dogs who are fearful, undersocialized and not ready for adoption quite yet. The warm and loving staff gives these dogs much needed support after they are rescued from some of the most appalling conditions. They rehabilitate the animals and get them ready to join forever loving homes. The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center offers extensive care and treatment for animals who have survived very abusive situations. Their situations have made them shy, unable to be handled by humans, fearful of leashes and sad. (more…)
PetSocial.org loves to share stories of animal rescue and of how the kindness of humans can turn the life around of an animal in need; especially one who has been severely neglected or abused. In addition, when animals save people in return, that is the epitome of what we stand for here at PetSocial.org. Please be forewarned of the graphic nature of the “before” photo of Xena, the “Warrior Dog.”
When Xena was found and entered the Dekalb Animal Services Shelter that saved her back in March, she was only 4 pounds and very malnourished. She is a Staffordshire terrier mix who was rescued just in time to save her from dying. Veterinarians and a loving family did the trick.
When the Animal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) shares stories of animal abuse, people listen. Currently, their website shares the story of Jessie, a 3-year-old Boxer in Buncombe County, North Carolina.
This past March, the innocent animal was severely abused, almost to the point of dying. Domestic violence was the crime and it was committed by the dog’s owner’s former boyfriend. The trusting animal who loved the man who was to attempt to kill him, had his throat cut with a knife and lost enough blood to almost lose his life.
