Thank you to all who have expressed concern for our marathon runners, staff and animals. Please know that everyone is safe. Thank you for your outpouring of support for the League during this tough time in Boston. “We are all stunned and saddened by the horrible events of yesterday. As a community of humane, caring individuals we grieve for the senseless loss of life and personal injuries,” said League President, Mary Nee.
Our area of Boston has not been shut down and our animals are well cared for. While we are very saddened by yesterday’s events, our Boston shelter and Boston Veterinary Care will be open during normal business hours today. Our thoughts today are with everyone who was impacted by yesterday’s events.
It’s important to remember that in difficult times like this, the unconditional love and warmth from the animals in our lives can help comfort our deepest fears, and make the darkest day seem a little bit brighter.
