Quite a few of the more than 150 animals rescued Tuesday from an overrun Medford home require long-term veterinary care, says the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in a release that went out Wednesday.
The SPCA is requesting donations to help provide this care, which those interested can provide using this Paypal link.
The animals, according to a News 12 report, include dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles, chinchillas and ferrets. A woman in her 70s was trying to care of them all in her Lincoln Road home, but was overwhelmed. The home has since been condemned due to filthy conditions.
The animals are reportedly at Brookhaven Animal Shelter were rescue groups will find them homes.
Suffolk SPCA Chief Roy Gross said in Wednesday's release that the donations would be greatly appreciated to help cover the cost of veterinary care and fostering the animals until permanent homes can be found.
