Five Horses Seized After Animal Abuse Charges

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN, Del. - The Kent County SPCA rescued five horses from a Camden property after an anonymous call about the poor health condition of the horses.

SPCA officials say the owner of the horses was ordered to give the horses veterinary and dental care in July, but failed to do so.  Officials say a nutrition plan was put into place as well but it was not followed.

According to the SPCA the horses were  underweight and needed to put on 153, 203, 308, 315, and 333 pounds in order to be healthy weight.

The horses are expected to make it and anyone interested in adopting and caring for the horses can contact the Kent County SPCA.
