Harrisburg Humane Society Morgan Seizure
1 of the Morgans rescued..
On December 28th, 2012 in Harrisburg PA another sad situation was brought to the attention of officials. Harrisburg Humane Society entered the property of a local Morgan breeder and found horrible conditions for over 25 horses. Five animals were seized at that time, with strict instructions to better provide for the remaining animals. Unfortunately upon their return two weeks later, conditions had not been improved, and the decision was made to seize the remaining 24 animals.
Through more support and sharing through online resources and information posted on the popular bulletin board for Chronicle of the Horse, we were able to contact executive director of the Harrisburg Humane Society, Amy Kaunas. After speaking with Ms. Kaunas, we learned the animals were in dire need. Not having been properly cared for, nutritionally neglected, without shelter, farrier work, dental work, or any veterinary care, the animals need some serious help! We’re proud to announce that with the help of the Harrisburg Humane Society, and members of Leg Up, we were able to provide a donation that will hopefully help alleviate some of the cost of caring for 29 needy Morgans!
The donating doesn’t stop here! After the recent overwhelming response for Marin County Humane Society, we would like to call on our friends and businesses, locally and across the nation to contribute, spread the word, and help out however you can. While we do not currently have an auction in place for this situation, you can donate through L.E.A.P, or go directly to the Harrisburg Humane Society at their website. We know through this amazing equestrian community we can come together to help those in need! Lets see what we can do this time!
Harrisburg Humane Society will be hosting a local fundraiser for the 29 Morgan Horses recently seized with a Spaghetti Supper Benefit. It will be held on February 16th, 2013, from 4pm to 7pm at the Hummlestown Fire Hall.
