This facility misrepresents itself as a rescue operation and deliberately mistreats many of its rescued animals, specifically depriving special needs animals by deliberate starvation. This facility's website make claims of rescue and rehabilitation. In truth, this facility manifests the very conditions it claims to be protecting many animals from, and is soliciting for donations on the Internet and to the public and to charities and grant foundations as well.
The Humane Society of the United States is involved with the investigative efforts by state officials.
Please see http://crueltyatorphanacres.blogspot.com for further information about this investigation and photos.
Issues include but are not limited to: housing of 11 stallions, accidental breedings, deliberate starvation of special needs animals, inhumane confinement, unsanitary and unsafe conditions, lack of shelter for the majority of animals, a private breeding operation which accounts for 2/3 of the animals purported to be "rescues," inhumane euthanasia, improper disposal of carcasses, and fraudulent claims on its website such as associations with local law enforcement.
