The Ontario SPCA has sent members of its Rescue & Relief™ team to Massachusetts to assist the ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) in the largest-ever farm cruelty case in the Northeast United States.
The Ontario SPCA offered to send members of its team and a livestock trailer to provide support to the ASPCA and Westport Police Department. Together, they are caring for and sheltering more than 1,000 farm animals. These include: pigs, horses, rabbits, sheep and cows; as well as dogs, cats and fish, that were found on the 70-acre property.
“We are pleased to support our friends at the ASPCA on this large-scale removal,” says Bonnie Bishop, Senior Inspector, Farm Animal Welfare, Ontario SPCA. “Working together, we will give these animals the care they require.”
