METHUEN, Mass. (WBZNewsRadio) - More than 100 goats are looking for "very special homes" following a Law Enforcement investigation and seizure in January from a Dighton property.
The MSPCA also announced they have had 29 baby goats, known as "kids", born at Nevins Farm over the last six months, as 12 goats were pregnant at the time of seizure.
"The sheer number of animals [in this case] and significance of their medical needs have stretched all of our space and staff resources to the max, but those challenges are worth it knowing that we are able to find them new loving homes," said Mike Keiley, director of adoption centers and programs at the MSPCA-Angell.
Along with the goats, authorities also seized an adult mustang and emu. The mustang was later transferred to a nonprofit animal welfare organization in Maine, but the emu, named Jerry is also now looking for a new loving home.
The MSPCA says Jerry is quite the character on the farm and will need to be placed in a home with other companion animals.
Anyone interested in adopting Jerry should apply.
