84 reasons for thanks

United Animal Nations (UAN) has deployed volunteers with its Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) to care for 84 neglected horses rescued from a Cannon County, Tennessee property by The Humane Society of the United States and the Cannon County Sheriff’s Department.

The animals were all very emaciated and in poor condition. Some mothers are unable to produce milk for their foals because they are so ill and weak.

Ten EARS volunteers are spending their Thanksgiving weekend caring for the horses and nursing them back to health. As one EARS volunteer said, "What a better way to give thanks than to help someone else in need? I can't think of anything better to do."

We'll post more information and photos from this situation in the days to come. In the meantime, read our press release and watch this TV news coverage.

  2. 30 yrs ago, I bought a horse just to get it out of this kind of situation. Whomever finally ends up with one of these animals will receive one of the most grateful loving creatures God ever put on this earth. My "Stick Horse" was so close to death that the local vet told me I had just spent $300 for an animal that he probably would be putting down in a week or two. "Stick" and I proved him wrong and for the next 15 yrs, I had the best trail horse, the best horse for anyone with any level of skill to ride. Stick followed me like a pup and did everything I ever asked of him and more. It was just like the response we get from our puppy mill dogs. Until the day I had to let him go, I was the one rock in his world and he knew it and appreciated it. God bless all of you and I truely wish I was there with you. Give these guys an extra ear rub for me. McGuyver from the WV puppy mill (forever mom of Ginny the wonder JRT)
