This past weekend, over three dozen well-bred Arabian horses were rescued from a farm in Oak Harbor.
These horses were found in starvation conditions with severe malnourishment, dehydration, and parasite problems. A few were already dead or died on site, during their rescue. At least four were humanely euthanized.
The horses were taken to the Sandusky County Fairgrounds by samaritans and veterinarians. They require urgent care and donations.
These animals are valuable financially, of course. But more importantly, in all three branches of the Abrahamic faiths - Christianity, Islam and Judaism - a community's health, vitality and morality is judged by how well it cares for its animals as well as its people.
I know that we are all pressed with worry now about the economy, our country's changing fortunes, and the needs of our families, neighbors and soldiers. But I hope that we can take a genuine interest in what we may do to help these starved ill companion animals.
Please reach out to the Ottawa County Humane Society at (419) 734-5191. And I encourage the Sentinel-Tribune to follow this story closely.
