Especially for Pets was proud to present a donation of $2,800 to the Noble Family Animal Care and Adoption Center at MSPCA Nevins Farm in Methuen on February 24, 2005. This was the result of all monies collected from in-store nail clipping services for the second quarter of 2004. The recipient, Mike Keiley, MSPCA Manager of Animal Care and Adoption Center at Nevins Farm said:  “We are incredibly grateful for the thoughtful donation made to us by Especially for Pets. We have enjoyed a working relationship with EFP over the years, and this collaboration has helped countless animals find new, permanent homes.

 This generous gift is just another extension of EFP’s dedication to homeless animals and will go a long way to help the 6,000 animals that our Adoption Center helps annually.”

The Campaign for MSPCA Nevins Farm
The generosity of more than 2,000 donors allowed the MSPCA to open the doors to the state-of-the-art Noble Family Animal Care and Adoption Center in November 2004. This 18,000 square foot center replaces the 3,000 square foot facility built in 1924. To date, over $4,000,000 has been donated to fund the $5,800,000 center. The remaining funds are urgently needed to fully fund the center's programs and services as the campaign continues.

Here’s how your donations have helped The Noble Family Animal Care & Adoption Center

  • The new 18,000 square foot center which enables them to provide ongoing and improved care for the 7,000 animals we receive each year.
  • An open, spacious lobby which can accommodate the 75,000 visitors that come to Nevins each year.
  • Optimal quarters for each species, including state-of-the-art environmental controls to reduce stress and increase comfort.  
  • Comfortable, 'get-acquainted' areas for direct interaction between visitors/potential adopters and animals, including separate areas for dogs, cats, reptiles, rabbits, and other small mammals.
  • An Education & Training Room for Community Canines, new dog training program, and for community outreach and education programs like Nevins Summer Camp, Equine Lecture Series and Pet Loss Support Groups.
  • Separate areas for assessing neglected or abused animals seized through law enforcement and a medical suite with surgery for treatment and for spaying and neutering.
  • A special adoption counseling area for staff to interact with the public in a professional and warm atmosphere.
  • Sufficient work space for 35 staff members and 120 volunteers, enhancing reach and effectiveness.
