SCOTLAND COUNTY, NC (WMBF) – The Scotland County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in caring for 11 malnourished horses that were seized back in April, in addition to two fillies that have been born since.

The horses are now thriving after nearly being starved to death, according to a Facebook post from the SCSO. The office is in need of hay, feed, and most urgently a farrier to donate their services to care for the animals.

“The person who was arrested for this mistreatment will have his day in court and as the Judge see [sic] fit will be charged accordingly,”  the sheriff’s office stated in a Facebook comment. “Right now we are trying to get help for the 11 horses and 2 fillies. We are trying to concentrate on being a voice for the 13 horses.”

If you are a farrier or know a farrier who would like to donate their services, you are asked to contact Officer Marc Brown at Scotland County Animal Control, 1405 West Blvd. in Laurinburg, (910) 277-2490.

If you would like to donate money to the horses’ needs, contact Melinda McMillian at the Humane Society of Scotland County: (910) 276-9271.
