COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – The Susquehanna SPCA in Cooperstown took in an array of animals from an owner unable to care for them, and is now looking to find them new homes.

With the help of the Otsego County Animal Cruelty Task Force, the animals were taken to the SQSPCA after they were surrendered.

"This might have been a scenario where we were waiting for the sheriff's department, the sheriff's department was waiting for us, or any other law enforcement for that matter -- and this poor woman may have still been trying to reach out to people, but nobody knew whose responsibility it was, and  we may have ended up with another case of a series of dead animals," said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes.

While they provided temporary assistance, Haynes says the shelter was not equipped to care for some of the animals -- like two chinchillas, and elderly hedgehog and 30 Lady Gouldian finches. The chinchillas and hedgehog did find a home after the SQSPCA made a post about the animals on its Facebook page.

Other animals rescued include a duck, a cat and an elderly dog.

Anyone willing to foster or adopt, can contact the shelter at 607-547-8111 ext. 111.

There were also two mini-horses that have already been adopted.
