UPDATE- Ramona the dog, who was found severely injured and with chemical burns near in the woods of Acton, and has been cared for at MSPCA’s Angell Animal Medical Center, is ready to be adopted.

The MSPCA is expecting huge demand for her and has set aside this Saturday, March 7 and March 8 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. for would-be adopters to apply in-person at the MSPCA’s Boston location, at 350 S. Huntington Avenue in Jamaica Plain. Adopters whose lifestyles best fit Ramona’s needs will be notified beginning March 10, so that final logistics can be arranged prior to the expiration of Ramona’s mandatory four-month quarantine on March 15. Since Ramona is still in the state-mandated quarantine, she is unable to meet with people who attend the adoption screening event.

The MSPCA law enforcement department and the Acton police department launched a joint investigation, which remains ongoing, with a $1,000 reward for information leading to an animal cruelty conviction. Anyone with information is urged to call either the Acton Police Department at 978-929-7711 or the MSPCA’s Law Enforcement Department at 800-628-5808.
