Ten horses rescued today by South Florida SPCA

Categories: Animal Cruelty,Horse Rescue

MIAMI, FL (January 16, 2014) The stench was so bad, buzzards were circling the containers of “feed” left for the 10 pitiful horses found in a Southwest Miami-Dade field in an area known as “The 8.5.” Rotten tomatoes, lettuce, corn cobs and avocados mixed with packets of ketchup and mustard and other unidentifiable food waste, was all that the horses had to survive on. An Arabian stallion, two Paso Finos, two Paints and five Quarter Horse/Quarter Horse types, most lame or crippled, are now safe at the South Florida SPCA rescue ranch in Homestead. They are all getting proper feed, clean water and safe shelter, and will be evaluated by the SPCA’s veterinarian, Dr. Zachary Franklin. The owner of the horses is unknown at this time.
