ASPCA commercials tug at the heart and the purse strings

Animal cruelty, unfortunately, exists but a number of organizations are bringing the issue to the forefront and available to assist when needed.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have seen the ASPCA commercials on television spotlighting abused animals and asking for your monetary assistance in continuing their work.

The familiar song by Sarah McLachlan, "In the Arms of the Angel," is just one of the songs on an ASPCA commercial; you know what the commercial is about if you hear that song playing.
