PLEASANT PRARIE -- More than 60 animals in Southern Wisconsin are anxiously awaiting new "forever" homes after nearly starving to death in Kenosha County.
Two dozen horses, ducks, and other animals were found on a farm this spring in Pleasant Prarie. Dozens of others were found dead on the property. An animal care group has been nursing the rescued animals back to health. They held an open house today for anyone interested in adoption.
"We had a good strong set of volunteers that came out daily to work with them, to help them turn around, " says Melissa Melby with Clawz and Pawz.
"When I saw those guys," says Klaus Dierks from Stonehedge Farm, "there was no choice and we had the place for it."
The animals are now being cared for at Stonehedge Farms in Pleasant Prairie until they find new homes. The animals' former owners have pleaded "Not Guilty" to charges of animal mistreatment.
