PETITION TARGET: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office
Photos reveal that the horses have been severely neglected and starved for quite some time, with ribs and hip bones dramatically jutting out from their bodies.
Working with Animal Care and Control, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said they obtained a search warrant for the private property following an investigation resulting from an anonymous complaint.
They removed 16 horses from the property — known as Amaryllis Acres, a boarding facility — sending the animals for immediate veterinary care.
Neighbors say that they have been complaining about this property for years.
The investigation is still ongoing, as specialists assess the condition of the seized animals. Animal Care and Control state that if the guardian does not voluntarily surrender the horses, they will go to court to ensure the animals are not returned to the property.
Sign this petition urging the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to shut this cruel boarding facility down for good, and push for a lifetime ban on all guilty parties from owning any animals.
