The morning of Thursday June 15th, 2023, the Central Virginia Horse Rescue team received a phone call from the Virginia State Task Force that our team was needed at a seizure in Shenandoah County. During the initial call, our team was told that we were expecting there to be 130+ thoroughbreds on a breeding farm located in Mount Jackson.
CVHR mobilized our seizure response team and pulled volunteers from across multiple farms who were able to provide assistance to law enforcement and veterinary teams in horse handling and horse transport. The total number of horses examined at the farm was close to 100 making it the second largest seizure in the state of Virginia next to Peaceable Farms in 2015.
CVHR took 25 horses from the seizure and the horses are spread out between the CVHR rescue farm in Fredericksburg and our 3 foster farms. Item donations can be sent to the 4 farms using the following Amazon wish lists:
