Following the Clermont County Humane Society’s seizure of six malnourished horses, a donkey, and a pony from a farm in Bethel, Ohio on Dec. 28, 2009, the community has rallied to the cause with donations of food, hay, supplies, and even cash. All of these donations are earmarked for the care and well-being of these animals.
“This is absolutely wonderful and so very much needed! We are so appreciative of everyone’s help and prayers for these animals who need us so badly,” said Humane Society Board President Molly Geise. She pointed out that all expenses for the care of these animals will be the responsibility of the Clermont County Humane Society, until any restitution is made.
Geise confirmed that Chief Animal Control Officer Debra Wood has filed charges of animal cruelty and neglect against Chad Moore in Clermont County Court.
