From Since orange is the color of most life-saving equipment, orange was selected as the color of the ASPCA's 140th Anniversary campaign. On Monday, "go orange" and show your support!

We’ve got our orange gear ready to go for next Monday—in case you’ve just joined us, April 10 marks the ASPCA’s 140th anniversary of helping animals—and we want to invite everyone to help us celebrate the big day. We’ve been asking animal lovers all over the country to go orange for animals, and many of you have been planning some special celebrations. Brown Elementary School in Eastpoint, FL, for example, will be holding a Wear Orange for Animals Day, while the Animall in Morrisville, NC, is throwing an anniversary party in our honor, with lots of free information, orange dog treats and on-site adoptions. To find out what’s happening in your neck of the woods—or to let others know about an event you’re holding—please check out our 140th Calendar.

If you’re going to be in the New York City area, please come to our canine carnival in Union Square Park on April 10 from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Hosted by Dancing with the Stars/Seinfeld star John O’Hurley, the event features a performance by the Pet-Rox band, doggie henna tattoos and the unveiling of the world’s largest dog biscuit. At sundown, buildings around the neighborhood—and throughout the city—will light up in ASPCA orange in honor of our 140th. For a complete list of buildings, visit us online.
