Livingston County Animal Control (LCAC) has been granted custody of 68 animals seized from a property in Livingston County on August 19th. The animals were found neglected and living in filthy conditions on the property.
Nine of the horses, 24 of the cats and three dogs are among the animals now in need of permanent, adoptive homes.
The Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition (MHWC) is handling the adoption of all nine horses, which are being temporarily housed and rehabilitated at a boarding facility in Howell. A tenth horse seized at the property has been returned to his owner, who was only boarding him at the property.
