SALEM, Mass. — Dozens of cats and dogs that have been brought to Massachusetts from overcrowded animal shelters in Tennessee, Texas, and Kentucky are in need of good homes, the MSPCA said Wednesday. The MSPCA-Angell in Boston and Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem transported the animals to the Boston area on Dec. 27, and staff at the shelters are eager to place them into forever homes in early 2023. The animals — 16 cats from the SPCA of Texas in Dallas, Texas and the Athens Animal Rescue Shelter in Athens, Texas, and 23 dogs from the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga, Tennessee and the Menifee County Animal Shelter in Frenchburg, Kentucky — had been living in overcrowded shelters but have settled comfortably into the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, where they will remain until they can be adopted, MSPCA officials said.
