Dozens of dogs from a Massachusetts home now need to be adopted
Dozens of dogs from a Massachusetts home now need to be adopted

After over twenty dogs were rescued from a shelter in Massachusetts, they were brought to Forever Paws in Fall River. The shelter, which already has dozens of animals in its care, needs the community’s help to find permanent homes for these special animals.

“As you can imagine, (the dogs) will require medical care and routine grooming and at some point they will need to be spayed or neutered,” the shelter said. “They will also require everyday care and supplies.”

As of Tuesday, July 9thThe arrival of these 20+ dogs joins 22 other dogs in the shelter and 7 dogs in foster homes, as well as 44 cats in the shelter and 24 cats in foster homes.

The shelter’s goal is to give all animals in need on the South Coast a chance, but supplies and funds are running low as the number of animals has seemingly doubled overnight.

“We know this is a difficult time for everyone, but if you can spare anything it will help us greatly on the very difficult journey ahead,” the shelter said.
