For the past 18 years, Animal Friends has rescued pets who are slated to be euthanized by year's end, and this year was no exception. On Wednesday, Dec. 31, 45 new arrivals made it to the shelter from animal-control facilities and rural shelters, where they were vaccinated, bathed, groomed, evaluated and scheduled to be spayed or neutered.

"It's a big, crazy day for everyone," said Shannon Tremblay, who along with numerous staff members and volunteers, welcomed the lucky animals to their new, hopefully temporary, home. "We'll take a few days to get everyone settled in and then those who are ready will be up for adoption next week."

New arrivals includes a boxer, Lab mixes, a dachshund, a multitude of cats and even a three-legged dog. Animals were re-named after famous authors, including Edgar Allan Poe, Beatrix Potter, J.D. Salinger and Aldous Huxley, among others.
