Last Night the Empire State Building Went Orange for Animals

Last night the Empire State Building in New York City went orange for animals. Why orange, you ask? Yesterday was the 147th(!) birthday of animal protection powerhouse, the ASPCA, and their color is definitely orange.

The organization writes on their website, “We’re thrilled to celebrate 147 years of our work for animals, beginning when our founder, Henry Bergh, first spoke up for animals in Civil War-era New York. Bergh, a gifted speaker with friends in high places, rallied people to the cause and succeeded in getting the New York State Legislature to pass the charter incorporating the ASPCA on April 10, 1866. Nine days later, the first effective anti-cruelty law was passed and, with a team of three, the ASPCA began working to enforce it.”

For those who would like to say happy birthday to the ASPCA, consider going orange this month, or do as I did and sign their puppy mill pledge to never buy anything from a pet store that sells puppies.

Happy birthday and congratulations to the ASPCA for 147 years of service and thank you to the Empire State Building for bringing much needed attention to animals.
