Our Field Investigations and Response Team Needs Your Help
Like many parts of the country this week, it is bitterly cold in Fulton County, Arkansas.
Just a few days ago, temperatures there were in the single digits when our Field Investigations and Response Team got a desperate call from local officials asking if we could help rescue more than 100 severely neglected horses.
