KHS Equine C.A.R.E. program buys horse farms

Kentucky Humane Society recently acquired two farms off Todds Point Road in Simpsonville and is operating an equine rehabilitation and adoption program there.

Since April, surrendered and mistreated horses have a new lease on life at the KHS Equine C.A.R.E. Center.

Twenty-two horses currently reside at the center, ready to adopt, in rehabilitation or training. Three are ready for a forever home.

“When you hear humane society most people think of dogs and cats,” KHS Equine Director Shara Wiesenauer said.
