METHUEN, Mass. (AP) – It didn’t take much goading to find new homes for more than four dozen needy goats.

An animal rescue farm in Massachusetts says all 46 goats it acquired in mid-May from an owner overwhelmed by his rapidly growing herd have been adopted.

The MSPCA-Nevins Farm in Methuen said Friday that an additional five kids born since May also have been claimed. Most of the goats – an assortment of alpine, pygmy and angora mixes – are already in their new homes.

Farm barn manager Gia Barss says the goats recovered from the parasitic infections and other ailments they had when their former owner voluntarily turned them over.

The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had called on people to step forward and give the animals new homes.
