Our Mission Statement

To advocate, protect and rescue, abandoned and abused animals using a proactive, humane approach. We are committed to our "no kill" programs, increasing community awareness and creating progressive changes in animal welfare.


As a “no-kill” organization, NESAA has a no-exceptions spay/neuter policy, which is incorporated into and drives every program implemented by the organization.   NESAA believes that by using aggressive spay/neuter policies and focusing efforts on curtailing the increase in the population of cats, both domestic and feral, and then in reducing their populations, this will result in residents with healthier pets and Cape Cod with a much lower number of feral cat colonies and abandoned animals that are breeding.

Our History


New England Society For Abandoned Animals was founded in 2009 as a 501C3 non-profit organization serving Cape Cod Massachusetts and the surrounding towns. NESAA is one of the few organizations that does hands-on rescue work within the region -- ranging from neglect, abuse and abandonment cases, to assistance with strays and our TNR program with ferals. ​​

NESAA strives to fill the gaps within the community offering programs aimed to help the community and their animals.
