Shaping the MSPCA-AngeR of the Future


         Ih more than 135 years of groiwth to be
         proud of, it was timtle to step holdly Ito the
          future, said Larry M. Hawk, D.V.M., presi-
dent of the MSPCA-Angell. In the past few months,
we have shaped a new plan to both showcase and link
our extraordinary humane and seterinary services - all
under the name MPSI'CA-Angell.
  ThMS;PCA operates   highly regarded shelters in seven
regions of the state. We renamed them Animal Care
and Adoption Centers, said Carter Luke, %ice president
for animal protection. In addition to providing safe
harbor for neglected, abused or unwanted animals, our
ultimate goal is adoption. Thousands of wonderful ani-
nials come to our dors every month. We take our role
very seriously to give them the best of care during their
stay and find them permanent loving homes. Activitir
of these adoption centers are highlighted on pages 4-.
  Another new direction is that all three veterinars ei
ters - at oston, Western New  England (Springfield
and Nantucket  Island - will share the name Angell
Animal  Medical (enter (page 3), in honor of the
Society's revered founder, George Thorodike Angell.
  This clarifies that we offer state-of-the-art veter.r
services in three parts of the state, with a combineid
of more than 70 veterinarians, including teams it
speciahsts. nurses and technicians, said Dr. I Hak V
