Here at the League we see animals from all walks of life, who have come to us under a variety of different circumstances. Just this past Friday our rescue technicians picked up a 5 week-old kitten that was found inside two plastic bags in a garbage can in Roxbury. Some concerned citizens, a 5 year-old girl and her mom, heard the kitten’s cries and alerted the League. The little girl decided to name the kitten “Paisley.” A law enforcement officer was present at the time of the pickup and has obtained evidence from the scene. The kitten is now doing fine and is in foster care.
The League’s Center for Animal Protection is committed to investigating crimes against animals and protecting animals from neglect and abuse. We work closely with animal control departments throughout the state and log thousands of miles each year investigating animal abuse and neglect. We receive no state or federal funding and operate as a full-time Humane Animal Law Enforcement Agency at no cost to Massachusetts taxpayers.
We encourage members of the public and other agencies to contact us if they suspect that animals are being cruelly treated, or are in imminent danger of abuse or neglect. Our phone lines are monitored seven days a week, including holidays.
If you see any signs of animal cruelty please contact us. By doing so, you could be saving an animal’s life!
