    If you are an avid animal lover, one way in which to demonstrate your appreciation is by making a donation to an animal charity such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), an organization dedicated to preventing animal abuse and cruelty. From helping to place stray animals into homes to investigating blood sports, the ASPCA (established in 1866) is involved in a vast array of causes. Support the organization and animals all over the country by making a donation.

    Step 1

    Visit the official website for the ASPCA at aspca.org. Click the "Donate" tab located around the middle of the orange tab at the top of the page. Supporters can sign up to make both monthly or one-time donations. Click on the type of donation you will make. Enter the exact amount of your donation, then fill in the payment and billing details. Click on "Submit" to complete the process.

    Step 2

    Donate items. Financial donations are not the only kind accepted by the ASPCA. ASPCA locations across the country take donations of brand new pet food, blankets, toys and many other items.

    Step 3

    Sponsor an ASPCA event or participate in a sponsored event. The ASPCA organizes many fundraisers throughout the nation that are dedicated to raising money for animal causes. The events range from marathons to biking events. Apart from raising money, the events also aim to educate the general public about the purpose of the organization. To support the ASPCA, either become a financial sponsor for someone participating in one of the events, or sign up yourself. Participant donations are made by visiting the "Donate" section of the organization's official website. Simply enter the name of the person you are sponsoring.

    Step 4

    Donate your used vehicle to the ASPCA. The organization sells used vehicles in any condition to raise money. In addition to cars, ASPCA also accepts recreational vehicles, trucks and boats. To set up an appointment, call the ASPCA at 877-999-8322. As long as you are a United States resident, the organization will come to pick up your vehicle, free of charge.
