19 Cats Make their Way from Georgia to Massachusetts and are up for Adoption at the MSPCA-Cape Cod!

Organization Urges Adopters and Donors to Step Forward as Newest Animal Transport Arrives in the State

BOSTON and Centerville, Mass., Oct. 9, 2020 – It’s been less than two weeks since dozens of pets from storm and COVID-19-ravaged St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands made their way to the MSPCA-Angell and now, on the heels of those animals finding new homes, the organization has transported another 19 cats to Massachusetts, this time from Georgia.

Kitten Surge!

The cats, 14 of whom are kittens aged eight weeks, with five adults, arrived by van on Oct. 6, driven at no cost by Puppy Pipeline Rescue of Georgia.  They are described as social and healthy and will thrive in a variety of homes.

The cats had been living at the LaGrange Animal Shelter in LaGrange, Georgia, which has been overwhelmed with animals as a result of the Coronavirus’ economic fallout, experiencing a 45 percent year-over-year increase in animal surrenders in 2020.

“We remain committed to helping shelters across the country who are struggling to care for the number of animals in their facilities,” said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA-Angell.  “Fortunately, we’re in a positon to help, and these cats and kittens, all friendly and highly social, are ready for new homes here in Massachusetts.”

Keiley added that it’s possible the MSPCA may transport even more animals from the LaGrange shelter in the weeks ahead.  “We’re going to try and help them lighten the load as best we can, and we’re going to do everything in our power to place these cats into loving homes,” he said.

Adopters—and Donors—Wanted!

All of the cats are bunking down at the MSPCA-Cape Cod in Centerville, Mass., which boasts newer and larger quarantine space than the organization’s two other adoption centers in Boston and Methuen.  The cats have completed their 48-hour quarantine and are ready for adoption.

Anyone interested in adopting can contact the center directly at capeadoptions@mspca.org.

The MSPCA-Angell continues to place hundreds of animals into new homes, many of whom need expensive medical care before they can be adopted.  The organization is calling on anyone who is able to support this work by donating to its Pet Care Assistance program.

“This is definitely the time to make a donation to your local animal protection organization,” said Keiley.  “Not only do we need the resources to take care of these new arrivals, but we’re also distributing hundreds of thousands of pet meals this year to vulnerable families in an effort to stave off further surrenders tied to the pandemic.”
