Mt Jackson, VA – Dozens of neglected horses are getting a second chance after being seized from a farm, at the 2300 block of Quicksburg Rd, Mt Jackson, VA. According to the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office, on June 15 deputies assigned to the Animal Control Division responded to a complaint and discovered several severely malnourished horses with visible hip bones, ribs, and little fat cover.
Several rescue agencies have stepped up to help the seized horses, including Richmond Animal Care and Control, which alerted Facebook followers:
