Horses Seized In Virginia



Large horse seizure in Augusta County. 30 horses were seized from Terri Sullivan, who is a repeat offender and currently appealing charges from a fall conviction of animal cruelty.  The Mountain View Equine Hospital has extended its facilities to house the horses until they find new homes.

The horses arrived safely at their new foster home on Saturday, February 13, but are going to be in need of items for their long term care. Only about 6-7 horses are a body condition score of a 4/5 out of 9. The rest are mainly body condition scores of 1 and 2 out of 9. There are pregnant mares in the group and some still with foals by their side. There are at least 9-10 stallions of multiple ages that will need to be castrated eventually but at least they are no longer out with mares. The horses have food, water, and shelter for now but a lot will be needed.

The horses that are in good condition will be available for adoption immediately but only to approved homes. The rest will be available for adoption once they are in better physical health.

If you would like to make a charitable donation that would be greatly appreciated. They are in need of grain, especially senior feed and hay either square or round bales. We will need dewormer soon as well as other medications.

The horses are undergoing triage and more photos will be available shortly for those interested in adoption.
