Kansas sheriff's office seeks homes for dozens of horses

July 09, 2019 - 6:27 am

The Sheriff's Office in Jackson County, Kansas is placing 42 rescue horses up for adoption. Sheriff Tim Morse is working with K-Heart, the Kansas Horse Education, Advocacy and Resource team, to find good homes. 

The horses are rescues from unfit owners.

"It was (Sheriff Morse's) intention, that after going through all of this, he did not want these horses to land in an auction environment, or certainly be purchased by a kill-buyer, and then be transported to Mexico for slaughter," said Karen Everhart, K-Heart president. 

Only Kansas residents or equine rescue groups in good standing may apply to adopt the horses. More information is available at the Jackson County Sheriff's website

The application deadline is August 10.
