$5 Friday - Help Neglected Animals in Need

By Amy King

You can make a difference, right now! In August, our Humane Officers received a call regarding concern for several animals on a property. Upon arrival, they discovered multiple animals in need of immediate medical care. Our Humane Officers seized three horses, two of which were severely emaciated, and one emaciated sheep from the property. The animals were transported to the shelter and have been under the care of our diligent staff and veterinarian to receive the medical care they desperately need.
