Rescued birds to be treated, adopted

Sixty-five birds rescued from overcrowded and unsanitary conditions have been moved to the MSPCA-Nevins Farm in Methuen to be treated and adopted into new homes. The birds — a mix of parrots, doves, finches, and other species — were all living in one room of a Lawrence apartment without adequate heat and cooling. Their owner, whose name was not released, voluntarily turned the birds over to Lawrence Animal Control after neighbors complained. Though officials at Nevins Farm say the animals arrived cold, hungry, and stressed, they are for the most part healthy and will be ready for placement in permanent homes. The organization is, however, asking for donations to cover the unexpected expense. For more information, visit mspca.org/adoption/methuen-nevins.
