Marion County rescued horses finding new homes
The Horse Protection Association of Florida is already finding homes for fourteen horses rescued in Marion County. Executive Director Morgan Silver says a number of suitable owners have already come forward.
She says the organization rigorously screens potential adopters before releasing the horses to anyone. These horses are in specific need because they have medical problems that require extra attention and care.
