There has been much interest in the 97 animals rescued as part of a cruelty investigation near Princeton, British Columbia at the end of September, 2020, including the 27 horses who were rescued.
At the time, the emaciated horses had to go into strict quarantine immediately. Tragically, several didn’t make it.
The BC SPCA was also fighting through a legal appeal to ensure that the animals didn’t have to go back to those responsible for their heartbreaking conditions.Fortunately, there is finally some good news. Not only does the BC SPCA now have legal guardianship of these special animals, but the organization is ready to start accepting applications for the horses who have recovered and are ready to be adopted.
Thank you to everyone who followed the story of these horses. With your support, all of them received the daily care they needed until they were ready to find their forever homes.
After months of care and rehabilitation, several of the horses are now available for adoption, and those looking to apply to adopt a horse can visit: https://spca.bc.ca/adoption/princeton97-horses/
For more information on each horse, click on the picture at the above-noted link to be taken to their page, where you will also find an adoption link.
Please understand that due to high volumes, The BC SPCA is only able to respond directly to the first few applicants who may be a match for each horse. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
Not Looking to Adopt?
You can still support the rescue, care, and rehabilitation of animals like the Princeton 97.
Most horses who enter the care of the SPCA have been neglected, abused, or abandoned. It takes a lot of love and care to help horses learn to trust people again. This gift ensures a horse in care gets hay, feed, a comfortable stall, proper grooming, and loving attention.
