Length of Time with SAFE: 4 months

ADOPTED!! by Catherine B

Butterscotch and three other horses were seized by Animal Control after being moved from another county to evade law enforcement. These horses were badly neglected, starved, and in desperate need of veterinary care. Sadly, a mare that was seized with this group was humanely euthanized by animal control due to her poor condition. These horses were part of a large herd living together in a barren, overgrazed pasture in King County. They were housed with multiple other horses in a heavily over-grazed paddock, and they were sporadically fed poor quality hay in insufficient amounts. None of the seized horses appear to have been capable of fending off younger and equally hungry horses to get to their food.

After Butters’ rehabilitation was complete, she very quickly found her forever home with a longtime friend of SAFE. She enjoys life as a companion horse.
