6/20/2013 | Adoption Applications Available For Animals Seized From Horse Farm
During April of this year, multiple animals were seized from a Pleasant Prairie farm during the execution of two search warrants related to animal welfare. Since that time, the animals have been sheltered, and are being cared for, by local rescue groups and volunteers. During a June 19 court hearing in Kenosha County Circuit Court, the owners of the animals agreed to transfer custody of the seized animals to the Village of Pleasant Prairie, which will allow the animals to be put up for adoption.
As of July 3, the following animals will be available for adoption to individuals who are equipped to care for them: 23 horses, 20 ducks, eight (8) cats, seven (7) sheep, four (4) chickens, three (3) geese, three (3) goats, three (3) rabbits, one (1) bull, and one (1) peacock. Anyone interested in adopting one or more of the animals can find more information along with an application by clicking here.
