Supportive words from Mariel Hemingway, a member of NESAA's Board of Directors.


NESSA's belief is that informing individuals about about the real issues within their community is critical. With their new- found knowledge, this will inspire them to join our "no kill" efforts for compassionate, humane changes.

  • Each year, over 7 million animal friends are euthanized (needlessly killed).
  • Massachusetts is ranked 16th in the U.S. for cat ownership and 50th in dog ownership for the US (American Veterinary Medical Association - 1/07 survey).
  • Despite the above statistic the cat is the least valued pet in the state of Massachusetts (MSPCA)
  • The state of Massachusetts has over 800,000 free roaming cats (MSPCA).
  • The state of Massachusetts has no known free roaming dogs to even create a statistic (Animal Rescue League). Free-roaming does not mean surrendered to a shelter
