Dog & Cat Shelters in Massachusetts

Unlike other shelters, we do not euthanize to make room for healthy pets, we give every pet the best we can. Of course this can be expensive, but how do we tell little Chappy who is only three months old that he needs to be destroyed because surgery to remove a bad toe costs over $150. We didn't feel he deserves to die just because he has a medical problem. And there are so many others like him that need medical care so they can recover and be placed into great new homes. But in order to keep helping these innocent pets, we need your support so, so bad. Please visit our recent rescues page to see who we've helped.
