Panhandle Equine Rescue Hosts Animal Cruelty Investigations School

November 10, 2019

Last week, Panhandle Equine Rescue in Cantonment hosted the hands-on portion of the American Animal Cruelty Investigations Schools taught by Doug Eddins.

Animal control officers from Brevard, Palm Beach and Lake counties in Florida, Jefferson County in Alabama and a sheriff’s deputy from Buncombe County, North Carolina, participated in the two-day class.

Local Farrier Josh Weekly also taught an equine podiatry class showing the importance of keeping a horse’s feet in good shape and how to recognize problems and abuse.

The only horse rescue in Escambia County, PER is a non-profit founded by a small group of concerned citizens with a mission to rescue, rehabilitate and provide adoption services for abused, neglected and abandoned equines. PER is authorized by the court system to investigate equine cruelty in Escambia County.
