CONCORD — The Pope Memorial SPCA of Concord has taken in 71 homeless, abandoned, stray, abused and lost animals in the past five days, and has extended a thank you to all those who have helped, donated, and contacted the shelter and for their constant support to the shelter at their "Walk for the Animals" event on Saturday.

The PMSPCA wrote on their Facebook page that they currently have 168 animals in their care, with 140 of them comfortably in their Concord facility. The facility has received an unexpected influx of animals, in addition to an increase in emergency medical care and procedures for other animals in the shelter, lately.

The facility raised over $9,000 of their $11,000 medical bills from the past month thanks to the public. The facility said on their Facebook post that they spend over $32,000 annually on medical procedures. "This comes after very generous in-kind donations of procedures and care from local veterinary offices," they wrote. "We cannot do any of this without you! We receive no state aid or federal funding - we run off of your support, adoptions, positive word of mouth, volunteering, and compassion for the animals. We are thankful, grateful, and so honored to be your animal shelter."

One puppy in particular, Pickle, has received quite a bit of attention lately. He was transported to the Capital Area Veterinary Emergency Services due to active seizures and life-threatening injuries requiring special medical attention. The PMSPCA mentioned that the costs mentioned above do not include Pickle's expenses.

The PMSPCA extended a thank you "with all the warm hearts, wet noses, and waggy tails," to all those who have helped their cause lately.
