CLARK COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Clark County Animal Shelter has recently taken in seven horses after they found them neglected on a farm.
On Saturday evening, the animal shelter got a call from a concerned citizen about some horses that were being neglected.
The shelter’s director says the farm on Irvin Road in Winchester had 21 horses and several of them were in need of immediate care.
One of the horses on the farm didn’t make it, two emaciated horses were taken to an equine hospital, and five were taken and sent to a foster home.
14 horses are still at the farm and the shelter is watching them closely.
“We’re very relieved we were able to get the seven and get them help that they need,” said Adreanna Wills, Clark County Animal Shelter Director.
Wills says the shelter isn’t equipped to help this many horses and they are asking for donations.
Their biggest need is grass hay and equine senior feed.
They also need donations of money to pay for hospital bills.
According the Clark County Court, Cynthia Konsella and Robert Fraichard have been charged with cruelty to animals.
A court date is set for March 4th.
