Hurdles ahead after animal rescue from Foxboro farm


The Humane Society of Douglas County is reaching out to the community after the rescue of more than a dozen animals from a Foxboro farm.

“There were some pretty sad things I saw that day,” said Sheila Keup, the humane society director.

Garbage and feces littered the property and home.
