Column: Why we need more animal shelters


Make sure you get your animals spayed or neutered.

Contact the MSPCA for low-cost or free services.

Get the “spay/neuter” license plate when you renew your car registration; this supports the spay/neuter fund.

Contact the Massachusetts Animal Coalition at

Report any animal abuse or abandonment to the MSPCA.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers and supporters for their hard work, dedication and the financial support they have given us in the last five years. As an all-volunteer organization, we rely on their kindness and generosity in order to be able to help the hundreds of animals we have rescued during those years. I also want to thank those people who have stepped up to the plate and taken in a homeless animal themselves. Please continue, and maybe someday we will have a shelter or animal sanctuary right here in Beverly.


Heidi Roberts is president and founder of Friends of Beverly Animals.
