The New England Society for Abandoned Animals (NESAA) announced last month that they were awarded a $10,000 grant by the Best Friends Animal Society in partnership with PetSmart Charities. The funds will be used to support NESAA's goal of 250 targeted feline spay/neuter operations over the next few months, according to an NESAA release.

"This grant means that we can add this low-cost spay/neuter project to our efforts this year to find forever homes for deserving rescued pets," said NESAA Founder & President Deborah Doe. The funding will be a great boost to the organizations no-exceptions spay/neuter policy, according to Doe.
