Bessy’s Place Cat Sanctuary is a sanctuary within Massachusetts Humane Society’s shelter. Bessy’s Place mission is to create a peaceful, comfortable environment where we can give older, medically compromised, or unadoptable cats the medical attention they require while allowing them to live out their lives with the love and dignity they deserve.

Animal shelters across the nation have become overwhelmed and overcrowded. Sadly, 71% of cats and kittens who enter shelters are euthanized. In the past few years there has been a 55-60% increase in the number of abandoned adult cats. Although some of them are adopted, they are usually kittens or young, healthy cats. Older cats are left to die. MHS strongly feels that these older, medically compromised, or unadoptable cats should be given an equal chance at life.

Bessy's Place Cat Sanctuary offers them a permanent place to live out their lives.
