When we think about animals in need of rescue, dogs, cats, and the various endangered creatures are usually the first to come to mind. But every breathing thing deserves a chance at a happy, healthy life. Sadly, that”s something these horses, discovered in North Texas, were desperately lacking.
Over 40 horses were found abandoned, starving, and barely hanging on to life. There was also an overwhelming amount of evidence of those who had already passed. But thanks to the Humane Society of the United States, the ones that were left were given a second chance at life.
Warning: some of the footage is graphically heartbreaking.
