After months of investigating animal cruelty allegations, officials in Ohio served a warrant on Serenity Horse Rescue, leading to the seizure of more than 100 animals Sunday.
The Miami County Humane Society and Ohio SPCA removed dozens of horses from the property and various other animals including bunnies, goats, and peacocks.
The animals were removed following reports of dead horses not being disposed of properly.
The non-profit was founded in 2006 by Shula Woodworth. The rescue’s website says it “is dedicated to providing sanctuary, rehabilitation, and adoption for horses that have been abused, neglected or are unwanted.”
The site also states “we take anonymous information regarding equine neglect, abuse, abandonment, unsafe or unhealthy conditions. We report it to the proper authorities while keeping your identity safe. Our only concern is the welfare of these wonderful animals.”
No charges have been filed.
