VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - We were the first to tell you about an all terrain vehicle theft at a Vigo County horse rescue center. This week, the owners of the Horse Shoe Equine Rescue are turning to the community to help get them back on track.
The ATV was stolen from the rescue. The rescue used this vehicle to haul hay, manure and anything else. It's the most vital piece of equipment to their operation.
The rescue takes in horses, donkeys, goats and pigs that others cannot care for. Then, they hope to adopt those animals to good homes. They're hosting a public open house this Saturday and are hoping visitors will make donations towards a new ATV. They also want to show off several animals they keep and take to nursing homes, daycares and the like.
The not for profit rescue says those donations would be greatly appreciated.
"We really need. I mean that's something we use constantly. If they had taken anything else, i wouldn't be nearly as upset," said owner Ron Barnett.
The rescue is located on East Devonald Avenue in eastern Vigo County.
The open house will take place this Saturday, October 5th from 2 to 7 p.m. at the rescue located at 7337 E. Devonald Avenue in eastern Vigo County. For more information, call 812-466-7674.
