Oklahoma program offers rescue for horses, other equine

EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — Horse industry experts say that there’s a growing problem of people being unable to care for their horses and other equine animals. The problem can become more acute in states with volatile economies, like Oklahoma. Some horse owners might lose a job or family income, or even grow too old to properly care for their animals.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals hopes to tackle this problem with a new facility in Oklahoma that will accept any horse, no matter its condition. The nonprofit agency says it’s the first of its kind in the U.S.
