“An outpouring of community support has put Thurston Countys largest horse-rescue organization back in the black.
Hooved Animal Rescue of Thurston County takes in horses seized by the Sheriffs Office; it also helps horse owners with feed and medical bills. Representatives of the agency said it would have been forced to turn the Sheriffs Office away after the seizure of six extremely sick horses in January cost $10,000 in medical bills.
Residents donated about $12,000 over the past two weeks, putting the nonprofit halfway to a comfortable goal of $25,000. The groups plight was featured in a story in The Olympian early this month.”
