SALEM – Some in-demand dog breeds are going up for adoption in Massachusetts.
The MSPCA’s Cape Cod site in Centerville and Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem have taken care of 33 special breed dogs, including French Bulldogs, doodles, shihtzus, shiba inus, cairn terriers and a pomeranian. They were rescued from puppy mills in the Midwest and flown to Connecticut on Thursday afternoon.
While most dogs are less than a year old, the MSPCA says they were probably considered too old to be sold in the commercial breeding facilities.
“Our relocation and animal care programs enable us to immediately meet the needs of animals in institutional systems that exploit them, while our advocacy department works on long-term strategies to protect animals in these systems,” MSPCA’s Adoption Director Mike Keiley said in a statement. a statement .
The adoption process is expected to be competitive. Anyone interested in adopting a dog can visit http://neas.org/adopt.
