One More Call Can Make a Difference for Animals in Danger

Written by PETA | April 3, 2013

When it comes to helping animals, patience and persistence are often key, as was the case with these emaciated horses in Wisconsin. PETA learned about the animals’ plight from a concerned person who had already convinced the sheriff’s department to monitor their condition, even though the officers said that they could not seize the horses.

PETA’s Cruelty Investigations Department exhorted law enforcement to try to reason with the owners—and it worked. The owners agreed to surrender custody of the horses, admitting that they didn’t have enough money to care for them. The recovering equines now have plenty to eat and are safe on a wonderful farm.

So please never give up on assisting animals in jeopardy, even if you’re told that no laws are being broken. Maybe you just have to connect with the one officer who is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty—but what matters is that help arrives in time.

    Never give up on animals that need help last year i found myself in the same situation but with feral cats living on a guys property i took 2 kittens form this guy 1 sfter 2 weeks ould not fight for life anymore and passed away but the other is 6 months old and the most beautful little girl who loves lots of cuddles, myself and my friend took the risk tresprassing to take video evidence and photos of the cats kittens what we witnessed we will never forget we did this because no authorities would listen to us we were told we could be arrested but we never gave up we said if noone will help we will take what we have witnessed to the national papers, then we did get the help most inportantly the cats got the help they soo desperatly needed. And this all happened in the UK we are supposed to be animal lovers, dont give up, keep fighting someone will eventually listen to you.

    This is truly a good outcome for these poor horses. I will never stop trying to help animals in need. They deserve the best loving care and I am so glad these horses that were rescued thanks to PETA are now being given good care and love. Keep up the good work!
