How do I know I am donating to the ASPCA?
All ASPCA donation pages use EV SSL certification, which is indicated by the VeriSign Trusted logo. EV SSL certification is the highest level of authentication currently available and ensures that any information provided is safe and secure. In addition, all ASPCA donation pages redirect to a secure https: web address that contains ASPCA.org in the URL. If any of those items are missing, no donation through the site should be made.
If you suspect an email or website may be fraudulent, please contact the ASPCA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify if we are aware of the situation, have authorized the use of our name, and do in fact receive support from them. Report any incidents of consumer fraud or deception directly to the Federal Trade Commission at http://www.ftc.gov/charityfraud or call (877) FTC-HELP. If you believe an organization or website may not be operating for its claimed charitable purpose, contact your state Attorney General or the Better Business Bureau at http://www.bbb.org/.
