Eight Severely Neglected and Emaciated Horses Rescued in Sunnyside

The Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty team stepped in when they were needed most.

(September 28, 2021)

Houston SPCA Animal Cruelty Investigators and Harris County Constable Precinct 1 recently rescued three mares, three stallions and two colts from a Sunnyside property after the emaciated equine were discovered in deplorable living conditions. The dilapidated, mud-filled area where the horses were being kept did not have adequate food or clean water.

A few of the horses have overgrown hooves, which can be extremely painful if they are not seen regularly by a farrier.

All of the horses will receive individualized veterinary care from the Houston SPCA until a custody hearing in the coming weeks. Their award-winning equine and farm animal team will re-introduce a nutritional diet for all of the emaciated horses.
