WAN’s Exclusive Update From Animal Recovery Mission On The 200 Farm Animals They Rescued Yesterday In Sunrise, Florida

Hundreds of suffering animals including chickens, cows, goats, horses, and dogs were removed from a farm in Sunrise, Florida, yesterday after a Good Samaritan reported concerns of animal neglect.

Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) was called to an emergency situation, where it was brought to our attention that hundreds of animals were being held in deplorable conditions in Southwest Florida,” ARM posted on its website explaining that the facility appeared to be a holding location for sacrificial animals. “Animals were being held without food or water in dilapidated shacks and cages. The young were not kept with their mothers and we found all animals were both emaciated and terrified.”

According to WSVN News, local officers were on hand Thursday as the owner surrendered the animals to ARM. The organization then relocated the majority of the survivors to its sanctuary. Sadly, at least two of the animals had to be euthanized.

“Animals were everywhere. It was like a war zone with dead animals amongst the living,” ARM Investigator Taylor told WAN as she explained that they were able to rescue more than 200 animals from the property. “It was horrible seeing the animals shut down in front of you at the hands of men that were using them for sacrifice and slaughter, but we did manage to save every single animal from the property.”

Taylor said that she anticipates that there will be many felony charges brought against the men who abused and exploited these poor animals.

“As horrible as these situations that we raid are,” noted Taylor, “it is very empowering and rewarding to be able to give these precious animals a second chance at life.”

“Every single animal we recovered today will require significant veterinary care and feed to ensure survival in our sanctuary,” ARM posted on its website. “Anything you can do to help will directly benefit the well-being of these new rescues, who are desperately in need of care.”
