BETHEL TWP., Ohio (WDTN) - A horse rescue farm is under the watchful eye of Health Department and Humane Society officials in Miami County.
The Serenity Horse Rescue is located at 5725 State Route 201 in Bethel Township.
The Miami County Health District served a warrant at the farm Tuesday. Investigators were working to determine if a building on the property was being improperly used for housing. One building was condemned.
A Humane Society investigators went along to check on the status of 26 horses living on the property.
