UAN’s temporary sheltering deployment in West Virginia is winding down, as the horses are being transferred to new adoptive homes or to rescue groups for foster care and future adoption. Nearly 50 equines who were once emaciated and neglected are starting anew, thanks to UAN staff, the EARS volunteer team, The Humane Society of the United States, the Wayne County (WV) Prosecutor’s Office and the Cabell-Wayne Animal Shelter.
Special thanks to EARS volunteers Shari Neal of Marion, Iowa and Debbie Ferguson of Kildeer, Illinois for taking photos and writing dispatches from the field.
