(Windham, Maine) October 27, 2016:
Nine (9) emaciated horses were removed from their neglectful owner by Maine law enforcement agents and placed at the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals. The herd was living in Washington County without food, adequate water or protection from the elements as required by Maine law. Today, the nine can rest easy as the Society has been awarded legal ownership. –Read More–
The Society promotes humane treatment, training and use of animals through education and hands-on experiences.
Come and see for yourself, any horse can find themselves in bad circumstances. The Society has helped virtually every breed of horse – Arab through Warmblood – and everything in between. Recently that point was emphasized by receiving into care two registered Arabian mares who had fallen on hard times. With their new-to-us names of Ms. Penny and Fire, the girls are safely stabled in the isolation barn and receiving the first of their rehabilitative treatments. Underweight and in need of services, their feet required immediate attention. Baseline studies by the Society’s able veterinarian Dr. Rachel Flaherty will allow us to track their recovery before offering these Gorgeous Girls for adoption. Just a reminder, horses adopted from the MSSPA shall not be bred. Connect with the conversation on Facebook by clicking the video.
The Society is open daily from 1 – 4 P.M.
The mission of the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals is to provide refuge, rehabilitation, and placement of seized equines; support the placement of surrendered horses, and educate the public.
