The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) is facing a sudden challenge as it seeks new homes for more than 100 farm animals, including chickens, turkeys, and geese, surrendered from a single property in Western Massachusetts.

According to MassLive, the MSPCA-Angell announced that on February 21st, they received 102 farm birds, along with a pig, a mini horse, and a donkey, from a property in Hampden County. The animals were transported to the group’s Nevins Farm in Methuen for care.

The decision to surrender the animals came when the owner, unable to continue caring for them, sought help from the MSPCA. MSPCA-Angell spokesperson, Rob Halpin, emphasized that the animals were not neglected or underfed, providing hope for finding them new loving homes swiftly.

At Nevins Farm, the farm birds, which include chickens, turkeys, and geese, have all been settled in and undergone health assessments, making them ready for adoption. The MSPCA is issuing an urgent call for adopters to make space for the large intake of animals at its facility.

Individuals interested in adopting farm birds from the MSPCA can visit Nevins Farm during open hours from Tuesday through Sunday, between noon and 3:00 PM or submit an application here. However, the pig, mini horse, and donkey are not yet available for adoption.

For those unable to adopt, the MSPCA is asking for donations to help cover the costs of caring for the large number of animals they've received. Contributions will aid in providing necessary medical care, food, and shelter.
