26 Farm Animals Rescued From Freezing Temperatures In Massachusetts Need New Homes

More than two dozen animals that were rescued last week from a farm in central Massachusetts where they were being kept in inadequate conditions, are in search of new homes.

The 26 animals, which include 13 chickens, two rabbits, four goats, three sheep, one 6-month-old cow, an alpaca and two guinea fowl, are currently being housed at the MSPCA-Nevins Farm in Methuen.

According to the MPSCA, the owner of the farm reportedly surrendered the animals, many whom were suffering from a variety of health issues, after realizing that they would not have enough protection from the threatening winter storm.

“Fortunately, we can treat these illnesses, and with food and warm shelter, the animals should recover,” said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA-Angell. “The new arrivals increased our population by 25 percent, which is especially challenging given that the harsh winter will no doubt lead to more farm animal surrenders in the coming months.”

As per local news outlets including CBS, Keiley and the team at Nevins Farm spent the last few days cordoning off space in the barn that is now packed with an estimated 91 animals awaiting new homes.

The animals, which can be viewed HERE, can also be visited at the farm during operating hours. Anyone with the proper land, shelter, and resources is requested to consider adoption.

Those who are interested in giving these rescued farm animals a loving forever home are encouraged to e-mail MSPCA at: farmadoptions@mspca.org.
