I am wanting to create a charity kit to benefit my local animal shelter. They do not just take in strays but have addressed several hoarding and animal abuse situations. Last night they posted about a very bad farm situation. The update is below for anyone who is interested. But I must warn you, it is very disturbing so if you are squeamish don't read!
If anyone is interested in creating a collab with me, please email me at mollyharbridge @ me dot com or post here.
Update on the Madison County farm animals: There are over 100 animals alive. These include 8 mini horses, 2 ponies, 1 Llama, 6 sheep, countless rabbits and chickens, turkeys, pigeons, geese and ducks. At last count there are 75 plus dead but they are not done with the count. The living animals were living and sleeping with dead bodies. Dead bodies in different stages of decomposition litter the property. Dead animals fill the pens and cages. Dead bodies have been thrown in buckets, trashcans, some are covered by tarps. This is a horrible situation. The owner has had interviews stating that we are over reacting. We are not. There is no reasonable explanation for the animal abuse / neglect that has gone on here. The lack of humanity. The good news is we have places for all the animals with hooves, for the rabbits but we do need places for the fowl. They all must be removed today. Financially this is more than the Animal Protection League or the Madison County Sheriff’s Dept can handle. We need help to care for these animals. We need hay, sweet grass, 10 mucking buckets, oats, rabbit food and feed for the fowl. These supplies can be dropped off at the Animal Protection League at 613 Dewey St. Anderson 46016. We are closed today but the donations can be left at the front door. For monetary donations please send to the same address. Thank you to this community for all your help.
