Seized animals ready to re-home

BC SPCA cruelty investigators say 16 horses plus geese, chickens and a donkey have been nursed back to health and are ready to adopt.

The BC SPCA's cruelty investigations team seized 57 animals from a Surrey property in August.

Sassy had a rough start in life but likes kind pats and the odd cookie.

Fiona is a personable diamond-in-the-rough who is eager to please and loves to be the centre of attention.

A barn favourite, Lacey is a gentle pinto who is learning to lead, lunge and pick up her feet.

And Kenzie is a golden pony, a 10-year-old riding mare who is quiet and laid-back.

With a little TLC and good homes, they’ll thrive – creating a happier ending to a sad story.

The horses were among the 57 animals – many of them dogs – seized Aug. 11 from a rural property on the Surrey-Langley border. The animals were suffering from severe malnutrition and had been living without proper access to food, water or shelter.

The horses were emaciated and suffering from chipped, cracked and overgrown hooves.

But thanks to intensive care they’ve received during the past month, they’ve recovered from malnutrition and medical issues and are now ready to be adopted into loving new homes.

All 16 horses are part of an upcoming adopt-a-thon in Cloverdale hosted by the BC SPCA’s cruelty investigations department.

“We would love to see them adopted by wonderful new guardians who will ensure that they will live the rest of their lives free from suffering and pain,” BC SCPA Special Cst.

Eileen Drever said.

There will also be llamas, ducks, chickens, geese, and a donkey and goat at the adopt-a-thon who are currently in care at the BC SPCA farm and are also looking for new homes. Gregory is a miniature donkey who is about eight years old, gets along well with others and will make a phenomenal companion.

The horses will be available for viewing at the adopt-a-thon. Applications from those interested will be accepted along with a sealed bid.

The event runs from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Surrey BC SPCA Education and Adoption Centre at 16748 50 Avenue in Cloverdale.
