For thousands of animals neglected or abused by hoarders, these hopeful months could mean relief from lives of senseless misery, thanks to your support. With an estimated 200,000 animals aﬀected each year, hoarding is rapidly becoming one of our most urgent issues, and the ASPCA is taking several major steps to address it. In 2010, the ASPCA formed the Cruelty Intervention Advocacy (CIA) program to collaborate with social workers and various New York City agencies to help hoarders and their animals get the multi-faceted support they need. At the same time, members of the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Team are on call around the clock to help local law enforcement and animal welfare agencies with hoarding rescues nationwide. In March 2011, we assisted the Montgomery County SPCA in Fulton County, New York, with a hoarding intervention to rescue 100 dogs living in vastly unsanitary conditions. Spring also means a new look for ASPCA Action . In this issue, the magazine is debuting a brand-new design, the better to highlight our work around the country and show how your support is making a real-life diﬀerence. Rest assured, we will continue to focus on the issues that matter most to you, our members. Our ﬁrst priority is, and has always been, rescuing animals from lives of cruelty and desperation. Thank you for joining us on this essential, life-saving journey. Chairmen Emeriti Hoyle C. Jones, Steven M. Elkman, George W. Gowen, Thomas N. McCarter 3rd, Marvin Schiller, James F.
