An Elkview woman is trying to organize a horse rescue.
Tamara Chasteen wants to focus on the problems in Kanawha County.
Safe Haven Horse Rescue of West Virginia has already saved two horses, but it still faces equipment and space issues. It does not have a barn, and there is only enough land for about half-a-dozen horses to graze on. The nonprofit organization hopes to raise money to improve its site on Blue Creek and deal with what appears to be a growing problem.
While they have not endorsed safe haven, animal shelter officials say a horse facility would be useful in emergencies. The current animal shelter has difficulty in dealing with large animals like horses..
Chasteen has been using the families own horses to give rides and promote the rescue organization.
Anyone interested in helping or joining the organization can contact Chasteen at 304-545-7463.
