Employee Benefits


At the ASPCA, we care deeply about our people and their pets!

Our employees’ health and well-being is a fundamental concern to the ASPCA. We have designed our benefits package to exceed industry norms and provide our employees and their dependents with exceptionally competitive and comprehensive benefits.

Health & Wellness:

We recognize the importance of health and wellness to our employees and their families.

  • Medical: The ASPCA offers three plan options for medical coverage administered by Cigna. Our employees in Urbana, IL, receive coverage through Health Alliance. All medical plans offer prescription drug coverage.
  • Dental: The ASPCA offers two plan options (one of which is fully funded by the ASPCA) for dental coverage through Guardian Dental.
  • Vision: Coverage is available to all full-time, non-union employees and dependents.
  • Ancillary: The ASPCA offers life insurance, as well as short-term and long-term disability coverage.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts for Health and Dependent Care: The ASPCA offers a pre-tax savings account that allows employees to set aside a specified amount of money for certain healthcare and dependent care expenses.
  • Wellness: There are several wellness programs available to ASPCA employees, including those offered by WellworksForYou, Cigna and FEI Behavioral Health. Employees have access to telephonic health coaches, wellness challenges and fitness and nutrition resources.
