Hurricane Ian Cat Evacuation

As Hurricane Ian bears down on Southern Florida, the MSPCA and Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) are already evacuating vulnerable animals from the state and relocating them to Massachusetts. This morning a plane carrying 42 cats—28 of whom had been living at the Lee County Domestic Animal Shelter, with 14 bunking down at Tampa’s Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center—landed at Worcester Regional Airport. The flight, sponsored by the ASPCA, arrived just before noon.

After landing the cats were loaded into transport vans and driven directly to shelter. Ten were taken to the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center in Jamaica Plain and 31 went to NEAS in Salem. The cats will serve out their 48-hour quarantine before the NEAS and MSPCA make them available for adoption. The cats include kittens as young as two months and adults aged up to 13. More details on how to adopt will be forthcoming.

20 Cats Arrive from Flood Ravaged Kentucky

Less than a week after taking in 150 cats and kittens from Florida, which followed the transport of dozens of Beagles from deplorable conditions at the Envigo breeding facility in Virginia, the MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) are once again opening their doors to animals in need, despite the swelling in the number of animals already in their care. This time, the two are partnering with the ASPCA to receive 20 homeless shelter cats from Kentucky, which has been ravaged by deadly flooding. The cats arrived at NEAS in Salem on Saturday, August 6. They vary in age, ranging from seven-years-old to as young as just three-months-old.

“We’re taking cats that were already in the shelters prior to the flooding,” said Mike Keiley, MSPCA-Angell director of adoption centers and programs. “By doing so, we’re freeing up space for Kentucky shelters to help owned cats that have been displaced by the disaster, while at the same time giving the homeless cats the opportunity to find new loving homes in Massachusetts.”

The MSPCA is seeking donations to help offset the costs of caring for the new cats. Those interested in donating may do so at mspca.org/kentuckycats or via the button below.

Beagles Rescued From Virginia Breeding Facility

As reported in the New York Times, about 4,000 dogs are being rescued from the Virginia breeding facility, Envigo, where they were forced to live in confined, unsanitary, and inhumane conditions.  The Virginia facility was shut down in early July.

Now, the MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) in Salem are bringing more Beagles to Massachusetts, where loving homes await. In a little less than a week, they’re heading to Virginia to transport up to 50 more dogs. And, they’re planning at least four more trips next month to bring more Beagles in.

The MSPCA and NEAS have been working with the Humane Society of the United States to bring the animals up to Massachusetts.  The organizations believe that at least some of the new Beagles will be made available for adoption the week of July 25 and interested adopters can apply via neas.org/adopt or mspca.org/adopt.

Anyone interested in donating to help care for the Beagles may do so at mspca.org/beagles or by clicking the button below.

“Scared but Friendly” Arrivals Settling in; Shelter Teams Plan Adoptions before Thanksgiving

BOSTON and Salem, Mass., Nov. 4, 2021 – Ten dogs rescued from a massive animal cruelty case in Arkansas are now safe after teams from the MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) drove to Tennessee on Monday, Nov. 1, loaded them into a van and drove them to the Bay State, where they arrived yesterday.

The new arrivals are among 280 dogs and 100 cats found living in deplorable conditions at the Humane Society of the Delta in Helena, Arkansas, which was shut down by state officials last week following a police raid that uncovered dead and emaciated dogs, a huge rat infestation, and mountains of trash.  The shelter’s director is facing hundreds of animal cruelty charges.

Coalition Effort to Save “Scared, Skinny but Friendly” Dogs

The 10 dogs taken in by the MSPCA and NEAS are Pit Bulls aged from three to six years, and appear to be healthy overall.  They, along with hundreds of others, were first evacuated from the Arkansas shelter on Oct. 23 and taken to the Animal Rescue Corps in Tennessee.

A coalition of regional animal welfare organizations then worked together to save the animals, including the Humane Society of Tulsa, Cabot Animal Services in Cabot, Arkansas, the Nashville Humane Society, Arkansas Pet Savers, and the Humane Society of Independence County in Batesville, Arkansas.  Moreover, the BISSELL Pet Foundation provided logistics support as well as funding and emergency grants for some animals who required surgery and heartworm treatment.

Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs for both NEAS and the MSPCA-Angell, says the teams arrived just in time.

“These dogs absolutely needed a safe place to land as soon as they were out of the Arkansas shelter, and I’m grateful to the other humane organizations who assisted with the rescue and relocation efforts,” he said.

“The 10 dogs in our care are quite friendly and social despite all they’ve gone through, but given the trauma they’ve endured, we’ll need ‘hero’ adopters willing to work patiently with them to help them adapt to their home lives,” added Keiley.

HERO Adopters Needed!

The dogs will serve out their mandatory 48-hour quarantine at NEAS’ Salem facility before some will be moved to the MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Methuen and the MSPCA-Cape Cod in Centerville.  The dogs will be available for adoption the week of Nov. 8, and anyone interested in adopting can visit neas.org/adopt for more information, or to apply.

Support the Animals!

The new arrivals are just some of the thousands of animals the MSPCA will care for in 2021 alone—both inside and outside its adoption centers.  Readers who would like to offset the cost of their care—and the care of animals just like them—can click www.neas.org/arkansasdogs to make a donation.

MSPCA-Angell and Northeast Animal Shelter Holding Fee-Waived Adoptathon for Small Animals

The MSPCA-Angell and the Northeast Animal Shelter (NEAS) are waiving adoption fees for rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds this weekend – September 24 and 25.

The event is being held as the organizations issue an urgent call for adopters. The MSPCA shelters in Boston, Methuen, and Cape Cod, as well as the NEAS in Salem are being pushed to the limits for housing small animals following the recent Law Enforcement seizure of 19 rabbits. Details of that seizure have not been released, and the MSPCA cannot comment on the ongoing investigation.
