    Default 80 Horses Seized, Immediate Assistance Needed

    Posting for Another Chance 4 Horses Rescue, Pa.

    Unfortunately, at the moment no detailed information can be given out due to this being a seizure and literally only ending late last evening when the final two horses were off the property. Organization is still happening.

    All horses have been removed and triaged to undisclosed rescue and foster locations. There is a great need for supplies of all kinds. The next 72 hrs. are critical for many and as details can be provided they will be. Please, if you can find it in your heart to offer a pledge of monetary assistance, wormers, blankets, first cutting hay, medical supplies (betadine, medicated shampoos, antibiotic ointments, ringworm/rainrot solutions, etc.)

    http://www.ac4h.com/SSeizure80Horses.htm


    Please watch for more details to come. No further info can be released at this time. Thank you.

    Oh gosh. I just cleaned my barn and I'll be sending some blankies over...

    Can't wait to here more information on them, 'cause (-gulp-) I have an empty stall if they're close enough.

    Why would you expect anyone to send funds without any info???....

    from your link:

    You don't have to give details, but how about pictures of the horses?

    If it is a sate seizure you may not get details until it goes to court.
    From my experience, after a seizure MANPOWER (or woman power, whatever) is what is needed. People to clean stalls, water and feed. However, in my experience, you cannot depend on volunteers. Yeah, the first week - volunteers are thick - then...none...rumors of strangles, etc, keep peeps from coming...
    I hope to hell this seizure has enough people to support the care of the horses.

    The linked page said this was a SPCA seizure. Which SPCA? Is it in PA? Can donations also be sent direct to the SPCA handling this?

    May - Yes that is why we said we would accept pledges. The SPCA is 501c(3) and will be taking donations directly. That info should be available on Tuesday. They are exhausted and everything with any detail obviously has to be approved.

    7HL - any COTHer who would send money with no details would do it because we've worked with Marli in the past on rescues. I can tell you that she held her hands over my eyes to keep me from seeing the horror in the killpen at a meat dealers when I went up to NY to pick up a rescue (remember April?) for transport to foster care. If she says no details can be given right now and the horses need help - I'll take it on faith.

    This was called a seizure, not a rescue from a kill pen.

    There are few differing views of slaughter and meat dealers on this board. Some my not wish to give , donate for something they don't support.

    She is soliciting money as well as supplies, a few details wouldn't hurt.

    7HL-

    AC4H is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit. The seizure was done by an SPCA local to the location. It was a HUGE undertaking. Because of the number of horses seized there is a great need for supplies/donations of any kind- however since it was just completed last night and all the volunteers are exhausted as well as caring for a great number of horses. Christy/AC4H stepped up to 'preliminarily' get the word out in the hopes that the necessary support that will be needed can be found. Due to this being an open investigation specific details cannot be released. At the present time the focus and priority is to ensure all the horses get what they need, this is for the horses.

    More information will be forthcoming once AC4H meets with the SPCA and other officials. Please try to understand.

    What is it that you do not understand here? It is a state seizure and they are not allowed to give the details as yet per spca. If they do they could compromise the case? I know Marli, Lisa and Has helped me place many ottb throughbreds. I trust her 100 percent. Be patient the details will come.

    7HL - YOU don't have to contribute. Nice that you want to protect the interests of others on this board, but we're all fine, thank you. Many, many of us have worked with Marli to save horses who were in horrific circumstances and trust her if she says help is needed. Why, exactly, do you care?

    Jan, your answer is right here:

    Is Chucky a meat dealer? Or a horse broker? Care to enlighten us, 7HL? I'd like to know, as I didn't think he worked with shipping horses to slaughter, but instead worked the auctions buying and selling.

    There's always someone who wants to badmouth ac4h for helping Chucky's horses find a wider market INSTEAD of the the auction merry-go-round; looks like 7HL is the one here? Or am I wrong about you 7HL, I'd love to be wrong.

    Marli - you and Jan and others beat me to it - AC4H is indeed a legit 501(c)3. Sometimes situations happen fast, and you can't give out details on a public board for legal reasons.

    And Marli also has a sterling rep on this board for her rescue efforts.

    I'm sending in my dribble.

    Okay - went to the site and am confused - should we donate to AC4H or is there another site set aside for this? Sorry, I am clueless today!

    I'm calling around to find blankets and first aid supplies from local horsepeople. Anyone in Central NJ who has something to contribute, please PM me - can be dropped off at my barn in Sergeantsville (south of Flemington) or I can pick up if not too far. I plan to make a trip down to AC4H on Thursday with supplies and to offer what help I can. UPDATED TO ADD: Supplies will need to go to the SPCA, not AC4H. As soon as I have an address, I'll confirm a day for my trip out there.

    Let's not forget the purpose of this thread, folks. It's not a debate about rescues or slaughter - it is a call for help for 80 severely neglected horses. Another Chance for Horses has taken a leadership role by partnering with SPCA to move these compromised horses to a location where they can be evaluated and hopefully, rehabilitated. If you can, just help. Another Chance for Horses website (I think) lists what's needed and how you can help.
