United Animal Nations (UAN) has deployed volunteers with its Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) to care for 84 neglected horses rescued from a Cannon County, Tennessee property by The Humane Society of the United States and the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department.
The animals were all very emaciated and in poor condition. Some mothers are unable to produce milk for their foals because they are so ill and weak.
Ten EARS volunteers are spending their Thanksgiving weekend caring for the horses and nursing them back to health. As one EARS volunteer said, “What a better way to give thanks than to help someone else in need? I can’t think of anything better to do.”
We’ll post more information and photos from this situation in the days to come. In the meantime, read our press release and watch this TV news coverage.
