The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-Angell Medical Center (ASPCA-Angell) just took part in a massive rescue mission concerning 25 large-breed dogs from Texas.

The dogs arrived just outside of Boston on April 23, and now the nonprofit needs help in finding homes for each animal.

“Many of these dogs were living at a small rescue operation,” MSPCA-Angell Vice President of Animal Protection Mike Keiley said. “But that group was no longer able to provide the care that they needed, so the dogs started to suffer, and it became clear they needed to move off the property.”

The country is currently in a dog population crisis, which makes securing transportation partners close to impossible, but thanks to the success of their last adoption event, the MSPCA was able to lend a helping hand.

How to Help These Dogs

The 25 dogs range from 12 weeks to 10 years old and are mostly mixes of large breeds, including Pit Bulls, Labrador Retrievers, Hounds and Catahoulas. To accommodate the large transfer of canines, the dogs were split up between the four MSPCA Adoption Centers.

“This transport really required all hands on deck," Keiley said. “Every shelter we have needed to free up space for the dogs to complete their state-mandated quarantines.”

Once they receive the proper medical care, it will be time to find families willing and able to adopt.

Caring for the dogs is expected to be expensive, but those interested in donating to help offset the cost may do so online.

These dogs need our help and MSCPA-Angell is hopeful that there are families in Massachusetts willing to open their homes to a new dog.
