On Friday, January 22, Last Chance Ranch (LCR) in Quakertown, Pennsylvania received a phone call to come to the aid of over 16 horses, in addition to two dozen sheep and a dog, from a home in Pennsylvania, CBS Philly reported.
LCR immediately came to the scene and got to work transporting five horses who were in critical condition. "Several horses are pregnant," Jackie Burke, equine health manager at LCR, told The Dodo. "The horses don't have any other medical conditions, just associated issues that arise with starvation, including dehydration, depression and difficulty standing."
Staff and volunteers had to use tarps to move the horses into rescue vehicles.
