We could not be happier with our experience adopting our special needs cat, Vincent from A Better Tomorrow. The staff is knowledgeable and caring and the shelter clean and inviting. We were greeted warmly and had our many questions answered without ever feeling rushed. The adoption process was thorough but easy and the support continues to this day 2 1/2 years later. It’s clear the volunteers love what they are doing and are happy to be there. I would highly recommend this shelter to anyone looking to adopt a cat.
WHO WE ARE: A non-profit cat shelter, run by volunteers, who are committed to the care and well-being of every cat or kitten that we rescue.
OUR GOALS: To assist the Winchendon community and surrounding area with their stray cat issues by providing shelter, medical care and placement of cats and kittens into loving homes.
WHAT WE DO: We accept stray, abandoned, or unwanted cats in the Winchendon area. As space allows, we also accept cats who might otherwise be euthanized or abandoned, from individuals with financial hardship or other circumstances.
HOW WE DO IT: We rely solely on donations and adoption fees to sustain our effort which is why your support is so important. 100% of donations are spent caring for the cats. All donations are tax deductible.
OUR MISSION: In addition to providing a shelter for cats in need, we are committed to educational promotion of issues pertaining to cat health, safety and population control. We feel that being a responsible pet owner is the responsibility of every individual. Each year, four million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters because too many are being born, too many are being given up, and too few are being adopted. We also offer advice on affordable spay/neuter options in our area.
What People Say
I love volunteering at A Better Tomorrow. I particularly enjoy working with the newcomers who are a bit more difficult. Being a part of their transition/journey from terrified, abused, feral etc. to confident, trusting, loving and adopted is extremely rewarding. Yes, we get attached to them and often cry when one is adopted. But each adoption makes room for another who needs just as much help. The friendships made with all of the loving, dedicated volunteers are a bonus!
