MSPCA-Angell announces second fee-free adoption event after record adoptions

BOSTON (WLNE) — The MSPCA-Angell in Boston announced they broke their all-time one-month adoption record this month after announcing thousands of dogs are at risk of being euthanized in the nation.

According to the MSPCA, they placed 250 dogs in loving homes this month, the most they’ve ever recorded in their more than 150 years of operation.

Officials said while this is a great step in the right direction, there are still thousands of animals impacted as the number of perspective adopters is significantly less than the number of animals in need.

“We put out an urgent call for adopters last month, and people have really stepped up,” said MSPCA-Angell Director of Adoption Centers and Programs, Mike Keiley.

“But it’s going to take more than one incredible month of adoptions to make a significant impact in this crisis,” he concluded.

To keep the energy high on dog adoptions, the MSPCA announced they will be holding another special dog adoption event from July 10 to the 16th at all shelter locations.

Adoption fees will be waived for all large breed dogs and dogs aged one-year or older.
