Brown County Humane Society takes custody of two neglected horses

The Brown County Humane Society has taken custody of two neglected horses. Brown County Humane Society Deputy Warden Barb Ashmore said she is seeing an increase in the number of cruelty calls about hungry and neglected horses.

The Brown County Humane Society has two horses in custody due to severe neglect. Both horses were found with very little water and no food on the premises. The horses had a body score of two and three, respectively. “It was bad” said Ashmore. The horses spines, ribs and hip bones are protruding from their bodies. They were extremely dehydrated.

The BCHS has dedicated fosters who step up to help in cases like this. “The people that foster neglected horses are one of the most important pieces of the Brown County Humane Society’s horse program,” said Ashmore. “In the past, we have relied on a small group of foster homes to house many of our rescued horses until they can be adopted. There are many neglected horses that BCHS would like to be able to help, but the sad truth is that we are seriously limited by the number of foster homes we have at our disposal. We are always looking for more foster homes.”

For those who can’t foster, the BCHS has other ways to help, Ashmore said. Donations are always needed for veterinary care, feed and hay. Even donating enough for a bale of hay helps out and adds up quickly. Those who wish to help may donate through Paypal, just note that it is for the horses. Donations can also be brought to the Animal Shelter at 100 Veterans Blvd. in Georgetown. If you are interested in learning more about fostering a horse or donating to the horses care, go to the Humane Society website at www.bchsohio.org for more information.

The horses seized are doing better. They have been named “Jesse James” and “Johnny Cash” and they are starting to put on weight. The BCHS will make sure they get everything they need and they should be up for adoption soon.

Established in 1976, the Brown County Humane Society is an organization dedicated to the care and well-being of companion animals that have been rescued by the BCHS and Brown County Animal Shelter due to cruelty, neglect, homelessness or owner surrenders. The BCHS is committed to placing these animals into permanent, loving homes and feels morally obligated to protect and improve the lives of all animals and educate our community about proper and responsible care.
