On August 03, 2023, we assisted Santa Rosa County Animal Services with the seizure of a horse and donkey. We were initially informed of the horses' condition when a new community member drove down the wrong street. Little did we know that because of a directional accident, a forgotten and severely emaciated horse, now named Maya, and her pasture-mate, Jodie, would soon find refuge with us. Both Jodie and Maya have their own health concerns that stem directly from lack of care. Maya is roughly 400 lbs underweight, BCS of 1, and failing organs, while Jodie suffers from a lack of farrier care that created permanent damage to both back hoof coffin bones. Since their arrival, both Maya and Jodie have been put on a strict feeding regimen and trimming schedule. Their case is currently under investigation.
On February 15, 2023, we were called to assist Santa Rosa County Animal Services with the seizure of three horses. We were initially informed of three emaciated and sickly mares in close proximity to a deceased horse in a very small, unhealthy paddock. The case is currently under investigation.
