Hopkinton, Massachusetts: Flown to safety

HOPKINTON —  The Greyhound Friends dog shelter in Hopkinton took in a new furry friend this week - Nova the greyhound, flown in from West Virginia through the pet rescue organization Pilots N Paws.

Nova was among several animals seized by authorities as a result of humane cases regarding serious neglect, and nursed back to health by volunteers at West Virginia's Cabell-Wayne Animal Shelter.
