BOSTON, Mass.(WLNE)- The MSPCA-Angell transported 38 homeless cats and kittens from Southern Florida up to Massachusetts in an effort to find them homes.
The MSPCA was asked by the Broward County Animal Care and Adoption Center in Fort Lauderdale to bring the cats to the Northeast.
They happily agreed and now the shelter will be able to free up more space for other homeless animals in Florida.
Mike Keiley is a director of different adoption centers and programs in Florida. He and his teams organized eight separate transports from Florida, Georgia, and St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands since the beginning of the pandemic.
The efforts of Keiley and his teams resulted in 248 pets have found new homes in Massachusetts.
“This is the second transport of cats from Florida in the last three weeks, and they’ve arrived at a time when demand for kittens remains at an all-time high,” said Keiley.
The MSPCA remains committed to finding homes for as many animals as they can during the pandemic. They’ve been transporting animals to parts of the Bay State where the demand for pets is very high.
The new arrivals will be available for adoption at the MSPCA’s Boston adoption center in Jamaica Plain and the MSPCA at Nevins Farm in Methuen.
The cats and kittens, described as social, friendly and playful are ready to head to their new homes after completing their mandatory 48-hour quarantine.
The MSPCA asks prospective adopters to contact the adoption center nearest to them with questions about the cats and the adoption process.
