Saved from Starvation: 43 Horses Rescued in Texas

By on December 17, 2010 with 0 Comments By Wayne Pacelle

The HSUS is constantly in motion—whether the goals are public policy reforms, improved corporate practices, public awareness, or animal care and rescue.  In The HSUS’s latest animal rescue deployment, this week we helped to remove 43 horses in dire need in east Texas—emaciated, ailing, and neglected. We were too late for some of the animals there, I am sorry to report.

We've just posted a slideshow of images from the rescue that you have to see, and a video documenting the operation, which was a collaborative effort between us and the SPCA of East Texas, the Humane Society of North Texas, Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement Home Inc., the Smith County District Attorney’s Office, the Smith County Sheriff’s Department and the Texas State Fairgrounds.

This was our 58th emergency deployment of the year—more than one major rescue or emergency response every week—and we are so grateful to you for enabling this vital work.
