Emaciated Horses Rescued, Need Homes

Buttons and Sparky need care but will soon be available for adoption



    SD County Dept of Animal Services
    The San Diego County Department of Animal Services and the FalconRidge Equine Rescue are looking for a new home for Buttons, a 30-year-old paint mare that was found extremely emaciated and abandoned in the community of Boulevard.

    Two horses, found severely neglected in Boulevard, have been rescued and need new homes.

    Animal Control Officers with San Diego County Department of Animal Services worked with a local non-profit equine rescue group to help two horses who were extremely emaciated and had been abandoned.

    Buttons, a 30-year-old paint mare, and Sparky, a 20-year-old chestnut gelding, are currently being rehabilitated but will soon be up for adoption.

    The FalconRidge Equine Rescue is feeding and caring for the horses. The San Diego Horse Coalition will pay for veterinary and farrier care.

    For more information about adopting Sparky and Buttons once their rehabilitation is complete, contact FalconRidge Equine Rescue.
