Martin County Sheriff William Snyder is asking for the community’s help in saving future rescued animals after 11 malnourished horses and donkeys were taken to a Palm City facility facing closure. The seven horses and four mares that were severely neglected and underfed are now in the safe hands of The Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation, Inc., after the Martin County Sheriff’s office successfully negotiated their surrender with the owner.  The animals are now being treated and will be nursed back to health. Four rescued donkeys, part of the effort, provided volunteers with unique challenges in trailering and handling. Two of the donkeys appear to be pregnant.
