Equine Rescue Continues Care For Rescued Horses, Needs Your Help
June 7, 2010
Panhandle Equine Rescue is looking for help — both foster homes for horses and financial — after the rescue of three malnourished horses Friday in Molino.
“These horses will require extensive rehabilitation,” said PER President Diane Lowery. “Since our facility is full, we need to move some of our already rehabbed horses into foster homes, so we can have a spot for these three when they come home from the animal hospital next week.”
In addition, the animal hospital and vet fees will put a financial strain on the Cantonment non-profit volunteer organization.
The Tennessee Walking Horses were seized Friday from a weed-filled pasture at a stable in the 2400 block of Highway 97 in Molino. They were seized by PER and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office by order of an Escambia County judge. For more on that story, and more photos, click here.
