July 20, 2018: Wild Hearts Rescue Ranch Inc was called to the scene to evacuate 7 equines from a property under investigation for cruelty and neglect. Regular residents of Wild Hearts were taken to our sister facility to make way for the new intakes, and the entire day was spent loading, evacuating, and caring for the six horses and one donkey from the scene. One horse is a stud and at least two mares were exposed. Two very likely and apparent pregnancies. All horses are below a body score of 2, which is emaciation. These animals had filthy water, no feed, and no hope. Their teeth, feet, bodies and minds need so much help. Initial vet bills/expenses look to be around $1000 per horse, roughly, considering needed blood work, treatment, vaccinations and more. Feed, manpower and professional care will be expensive, and we haven't had a single donation on their case since it began. Very scary. Several of our local news stations will be covering this story. We worked with KOLD yesterday. Please consider a donation, or volunteer some time to help feed and care for the horses at Wild Hearts. We are honored to rise to the occasion for these animals and for our wonderful Sheriff's Department and their effort to erase a horrible blight on our county. We have long struggled to see the kind of quick response to these situations that we are getting without question now. No longer will horses suffer to death in Pima County. No longer will their abusers escape justice. Will you help us? We did all the hard work, we faced all the danger, and the sweat... So much sweat. We will heal these precious hearts but we need your help!
