Online auction underway to help seized horses in negligence case


HORRY COUNTY, SC (WBTW) – An online auction is underway for several horses seized last spring in Horry County as part of a negligence investigation.

the Horry County Animal Care Center took care of the horses in preparation for the auction, which will run until August 22.

In a Facebook post, the center said it spent nearly two months tending to the horses, many of which are Gypsy Vanners. The center said it was also carrying out DNA testing and lineage research.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the Animal Care Center to help recover the costs of horse care and set up a fund for the care of other horses and animals in need.

Each participant in the auction can only buy one horse, except in the case of female pipes which are accompanied by a foal, the center said. The horse auctions are at Horse sales in the United States.

The Horry County Animal Care Center is located at 1923 Industrial Park Road in Conway. However, the horses are kept in a separate place, the center said.
