MAP in Action

'In just this past month through MAP, we have already been able to save 70 animals and have plans underway for another 55 in the next few weeks … the MAP grant we received has us off to a phenomenal start!' - Donna Pregeant, Humane Society of Lincoln County TN


Do you have too many animals at your facility – or not enough? The ASPCA's MAP (Moving Animals Places) is a free, searchable database that helps you connect with nearby shelters. Members can look for a source or destination group either on a one-time basis or as the start of a powerful lifesaving partnership!

How MAP Works

Three easy steps will get you started:

  • Fill out a short form
  • Begin browsing to find possible connections
  • Join the MAP community by entering more detailed data so that other shelters can find you

MAP can help just about any sheltering agency or rescue – whether your organization occasionally has empty cages, or you're facing low live-release rates, or you would simply like to partner with other groups for a more diverse selection of animals on the adoption floor. The information provided through MAP is comprehensive, real-time and all in one place – and that helps groups facilitate more efficient, humane and safe transports.
