Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

73 Horses Found Malnourished and Caked in Filth!

As you read this email, American Humane’s Red Star Animal Emergency Services™ team is on the scene in Erie County, N.Y., helping care for 73 horses found in utterly horrific, disaster-like conditions.

Please donate today to ensure that animals trapped in disasters — natural or manmade, like this one — receive the medical attention and loving treatment they deserve!

No animal should have to undergo the misery that has defined these poor horses’ lives. It appeared that the horses had rarely — if ever — been let out of their stalls. Feces covered the stall floors and walls, the food and water dishes, and even some of the animals themselves. It was difficult for the horses to stand in such conditions! Many were also reportedly underweight by hundreds of pounds.

Animal cruelty charges are currently pending against the horses’ owner.

Caring for so many large animals at one time was beyond the capacity of the local humane society. That’s why American Humane is now working tirelessly alongside the SPCA Serving Erie County — the lead organization in the rescue — and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to restore these severely neglected animals to health and provide the care they so desperately need!

It is only through the generosity of compassionate donors like you that we were able to respond to this crisis. Give what you can today, and we’ll be ready to help more animals in need tomorrow!
