There has been so much interest in the 97 animals rescued as part of a cruelty investigation near Princeton at the end of September, including the 27 horses who were rescued.
At the time, the emaciated horses had to go into strict quarantine immediately. Tragically, several didn’t make it.
The BC SPCA was also fighting through a legal appeal to ensure that the animals didn’t have to go back to those responsible for their heartbreaking conditions.
Fortunately, there is finally some good news. Not only does the BC SPCA now have legal guardianship of these special animals but the organization is ready to start accepting applications for the horses who have recovered and are ready to be adopted.
Thank you to everyone who followed the story of these horses. With your support, all of them received the daily care they needed until they were ready to find their forever homes.
