MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WDTN) - The Humane Society in Hamilton is asking for help in the care for four abused horses.
They were removed from a home in Madison Township Friday, July 22.
When rescuers arrived, one horse was dead and several others in poor condition.
The Humane Society took possession of four horses. Two others are in the process of being returned to their out-of-state owners.
The home owner, Sandra Givens, of Middletown, was charged with seven counts of cruelty to animals.
The Humane Society is in need of supplies and monetary donations.
"Although we do not currently have a facility for large animal rescue, we have wonderful humane officers, staff and volunteers that are tending to the needs of these horses around the clock," said Meg Stephenson, Executive Director for Animal Friends Humane Society.
"We are looking into raising funds to purchase or build a facility for the housing of large animal rescue in the years to come. In the meantime, we are still very much in need of financial assistance for medical care and supplies. Feed buckets, halters, leads, fly spray, hay, grain and other basic supplies can be dropped off at the Humane Society, 1820 Princeton Road in Hamilton. All support is greatly appreciated."
Anyone who is interested in providing a forever home and a second chance for any of the horses can submit an adoption application to the Humane Society. Applications are available online at www.animalfriendshs.org .
