The ASPCA is on the ground in Spokane, Washington, assisting Spokane County Regional Animal Protective Services (SCRAPS) in the sheltering and care of 63 horses seized in an animal cruelty investigation. Our responders will remain on site for at least 30 days to nurse the horses to health before they are placed with rescue groups for adoption.
SCRAPS officials discovered the severely emaciated and dehydrated horses, who had no access to water or acceptable food, on an abandoned property. Eleven horses in critical condition were taken to a local veterinarian for immediate medical attention.
With your support, the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response team is able to answer the calls of state and municipal governments and other animal welfare organizations when they need our help and expertise to manage large-scale animal rescue operations. By making a gift to the ASPCA, you are helping us provide these horses—and other victims of animal cruelty nationwide—with the care they need and deserve.
Caring for this many horses is an enormous, costly undertaking. Please join the ASPCA in taking a stand against cruelty and donate today. On behalf of animals across the country, thank you!
