The Angell Animal Medical Center did not receive any reports of animal casualties from the Boston Marathon bombing, according to spokesperson Rob Halpin.

The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA), which runs the cutting-edge animal hospital at its 350 S. Huntington Ave. headquarters in Jamaica Plain, also has not received any pets displaced by the event, according to Halpin. He said the MSPCA has an arrangement with the American Red Cross to take in such animals.

“I’ve been through the hospital since the news broke and we haven’t had any animals that were impacted,” Halpin said.

One person ran the marathon to raise funds for the MSPCA-Angell and was uninjured in the attack, as the Gazette previously reported.
