Earlier this week, a Texas horse owner has voluntarily surrendered a herd of 105 Miniature Horses to the Houston SPCA. The owner also gave up 46 dogs. She admitted she was not financially able to care for the massive number of animals she had bred, but was allowed to keep some of her animals with the SPCA monitoring their care.
The animals are reported to be underweight and the horses are in need of proper hoof care, but they are all expected to recover. Investigators report that the animals seem friendly, but they will undergo health and behavior screening before being made available for adoption.
The Houston SPCA is seeking assistance in the form of volunteer veterinary and farrier care, as well as donations of mini-sized halters. To make a donation or find out about fostering or adopting any of these horses or dogs, visit www.houstonspca.org
