Horses are often abandoned by their owners for various reasons, such as financial difficulties, lack of resources to properly care for the animal, or health issues that render the horse unusable for its intended purpose.
Horses that are neglected or abandoned can suffer from malnutrition, disease, and injury, and may be at risk of euthanasia or being sold to slaughterhouses. To prevent such situations, horse owners should be aware of the costs and responsibilities involved in horse ownership and should seek assistance from the Commissioner for Animal Welfare if they are unable to provide adequate care for their animal.
Animal lovers can still do their bit to help. Adopting is not the best solution in this case, but if you’re interested in helping you are encouraged to call the Commissioner for Animal Welfare on 79800046.
