Spaying and Neutering is the most effective way to humanely control the overpopulation of dogs and cats. Offering this to the community is a key component to our life saving mission. We do this in-part through collaborations with local veterinarians who steeply discount their rates. Also, NESAA has an in-house surgical suite to be able to keep up with the demand for sterilizations. To see if you qualify, please contact (508) 771-7800 or go to for more information.
