Contrary to popular belief, rather than cats and dogs, the first American animal activists focused mostly on horses, working tirelessly for the welfare of animals that were an important means of transportation.
Then, on April 14, 1869, Caroline Earl White and a group of women established what is now considered America’s first animal sanctuary in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. In addition to horses, its mission expanded to “provide a shelter for lost and homeless dogs, as soon as possible, where they can be housed until they can be found a home.” Go, or they should not be housed at all.”
It marked a turning point. The concept of a shelter, or even a municipal pound, as a place where you can go and find a pet, According to Historian Burney Onti really took hold in the late 19th century and has grown steadily since then.
