Eleven horses have regained their footing and are now receiving dedicated care following a close call with death.

According to KSDK, a truck carrying a large trailer with 29 horses was involved in a traffic accident on Sunday night in Franklin County, Missouri. The collision caused the trailer to overturn in the median and tragically resulted in the loss of 14 horses.

In the early hours of Monday morning, dedicated rescuers from the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, along with the Missouri Emergency Response Service’s (MERS) Large Animal Rescue team, arrived at the crash site to aid the surviving animals. Despite the challenging conditions of darkness and rain, the combined efforts of these two groups were focused on freeing horses from the trailer, locating horses that had fled, and preparing the remaining animals for advanced care.

Rescuers took eleven of the horses to Longmeadow Rescue Ranch to begin their rehabilitation process. These horses are currently dealing with shock, significant cuts and scrapes on their skin and legs, injuries to their heads and eyes, as well as back injuries. An equine veterinarian is providing thorough examinations and care for these animals, who will remain at Longmeadow until their health improves.

As for the remaining four horses, who sustained more severe injuries, they are receiving specialized care at Homestead Veterinary Hospital. They will remain there until their condition stabilizes enough for them to be safely transported to Longmeadow.

“Missouri’s animals are very fortunate to have dedicated, highly-skilled, experienced people across multiple organizations who can come to the rescue in dangerous emergency situations like this,” said Debbie Hill, vice president of operations, Humane Society of Missouri. “Longmeadow Rescue Ranch, MERS, and Homestead Veterinary Hospital have partnered on multiple occasions to help animals in jeopardy. We are also grateful to the Missouri Highway Patrol and the Boles Fire Department for responding so professionally to this tragic situation.”

Those who care about animals can stay informed about the progress of the recovering horses and contribute to their well-being by visiting the rescue ranch’s website. Donations towards their care are also welcome through the website.

A Dog Heroically Stays Inside a Burning House, Refusing to Leave as He Protects Four Small Friends That Are Also Trapped Inside

Who says dogs don’t like cats? People always think that dogs and cats are ‘natural’ enemies and the story below will prove us wrong. This story might be one of the most unusual rescue stories ever.

A Jack Russell mix dog named Leo risked his life to protect and save four newborn kittens from house fire in Melbourne, Australia. When firefighters were trying to prevent the flames spread in the house, they discovered a dog still inside the home. Firefighters had to dodge fallen power lines to reach the dog.

Leo was found lying unconscious on the floor. They lifted him up and were in total shock of what they found beneath him! The dog had placed his body over kittens to keep them safe until help could arrive. Miraculously, the four kittens were unharmed, thanks to Leo. Firefighters rushed the pets outside where Leo was given oxygen. He is now feeling well.

Watch the video to find out! Please ‘SHARE’ to pass on this story to a friend or family member if you also think that Leo is a hero!
