Essex County officials in partnership with Co-Chairs, Supervisor Sharon Boisen and Supervisor Dave Blades of the Animal Cruelty Task Force Committee, the North Country SPCA and Crane Mountain Valley Horse Rescue announced the seizure of more than 40 horses for alleged violations under the Agriculture and Market Law.
“Essex County as required by law, accepted the responsibility for providing temporary shelter for the horses which were determined by independent veterinarians to be seriously neglected and in need of immediate feed and care. Our hope is to quickly restore these horses to good health. Any assistance the public can offer would be greatly appreciated.” Dan Palmer, County Manager
Due to the strict dietary needs of the horses monetary donations for the feed and care of the horses are requested by the Essex County Animal Cruelty Task Force.
If the public would like to donate they may contact Tam Mrose of the Animal Cruelty Task Force at (518) 834-7849. Donation checks can be sent and made payable directly to the Essex County Treasurers Office, P.O. Box 217, Elizabethtown, NY 12932. Please indicate on the memo line of the check – Horse Care.
