Neglected animals improving in foster care
Spring is upon us, a time of renewal and hope.
Such is the case for an elderly white mare and two dogs that were part of a larger group of animals (13 horses and seven dogs) that were rescued from an abusive home last December by Humane Officer Ronda Piatt.
Piatt seized the animals last December from a farm in Woodsfield where they had suffered malnutrition, lack of water, wounds, lice, fleas and worms.
The horses were taken to the humane shelter in Monroe County where they were immediately cared for and examined by Mary Edge of the Woodsfield Veterinary Services. Euthanasia was recommended for an elderly white mare whose knees were extremely swollen and who had difficulty moving.
The dogs were taken to Monroe County Dog Pound.
