OAA steps up to help” Stomp Out Cruelty in Oklahoma”. Last week the Washington County Sheriff’s office seized 10 horses and 5 dogs. During the inspection they called OAA in hopes we would step in and help with housing the animals. We made a few calls and set up transportation and places for the animals to be secured and cared for.
At the time of the seizure, many of the horses were horrible malnourished and in need of immediate care.
Now that the horses and dogs have been cared for and checked out by a vet in Washington county, OAA will transport them to safe havens on Saturday, August 24. The bond hearing has not been set. We are hopeful that at the bond hearing the animals will be relinquished to OAA, so that we can move forward in efforts to get them into good homes.
While we wait until we can take ownership of the animals, we need help with their care with the following items:
- Medical expenses such as dental care and farrier work
- Feed buckets
- 10 bales of hay
- Feed: Complete horse, Senior feed, Rice bran
- 100 gallon stock tank
- electric poles or tall heavy poles to build lean-tos; 6 needed
- fence materials; panels to build round pen
