46 goats adopted after being rescued by MSPCA-Nevins Farm

METHUEN, MASS. (WHDH) - 46 goats have been adopted after the largest single surrender of goats in the history of the MSPCA-Nevins Farm in Methuen.

According to the MSPCA, not only have all of the goats been adopted into permanent homes, but so have the five babies that were born shortly after they arrived on the farm.

The goats were rescued in May from a dirty and unsafe property after their former owner became overwhelmed and could no longer care for them.

The Nevins Farm team successfully treated the goats for Coccidia, an especially contagious disease that every animal was suffering from upon arrival.

Ten goats still remain at Nevins Farm, but they will head to their new homes next week.

The goats were adopted into families far and wide across Massachusetts, and some have gone to homes in New Hampshire.
