On the last day of the Thurston County Fair, HAROTC will be bringing a few of our horses to participate in a Rescue Pet Roundup, featuring adoptable animals from several local animal rescues. People can see and meet animals and fill out applications if they are interested in adopting! The event will be Sunday August 3rd in the Hicks Lake Barn, Thurston County Fairgrounds, 3054 Carpenter Road SE, Lacey.
Two horses and a mule were seized from a rural farm, part a shocking case of animal cruelty in Thurston County. One horse was in such bad shape veterinarians had to put him down on the spot. The case is being investigated by the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office and investigators say it’s not the first time the animal’s owners have been accused of abuse.
