MSPCA: More than 100 goats up for adoption after being abandoned – Boston News, Weather, Sports

METHUEN, MASS. (WHDH) – The MSPCA of Nevis Farm has announced that more than 100 goats are up for adoption after being abandoned by their previous owner.

The MSPCA said the goats, an adult mustang and an emu, were seized during a law enforcement investigation in January at a farm in Dighton. The animals were taken away after their owner failed to post bail, as ordered by a judge.

“The great number of animals [in this case] and the magnitude of their medical needs have stretched all of our space and personnel resources to the limit, but these challenges are worth it knowing that we are able to find them loving new homes,” said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at MSPCA-Angell.

The mustang was transferred to a nonprofit animal welfare organization in Maine. However, Jerry the emu is up for adoption.

The MSPCA said 29 baby goats had been born in the past six months at Nevis Farm, with 12 of the goats brought in pregnant at the time.

“The babies are adorable. We loved taking care of them and more than anything, we are grateful for the support of our community that allowed us to save them from such dangerous living conditions,” said Rachel Diersen, Assistant Director, equines and farm animals at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm.

The Nevins Farm team encourages anyone interested in adopting to visit mspca.org/goats.
