The Metro-South non-profit animal shelter welcomes pets

from Centerville shelter as Hurricane Earl approaches

 

 

                        The Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts (APCSM), working with the MSPCA, accepted a half-dozen dogs and a variety of small animals into its Brockton adoption center, providing them shelter during the hurricane.   The transfer of these animals was coordinated by Kim Heise, APCSM president and manager, along with the MSPCA management team as part of regional efforts to provide a safe haven for those homeless pets in the temporary care of the Centerville facility.  “Just as people need to take actions to protect their families during a storm, animal care professionals do the same”, says Kim Heise; “The APCSM is happy to welcome these pets into our shelter where volunteers and staff will provide them comfort and care.  Heise went on to say “Preparing and initiating relocation plans begin early when a storm is still days away and the process continues after a storm passes. We will stay in contact with the MSPCA and continue to provide care for these animals until the Centerville shelter is able to resume normal operations”.
