Unclaimed Hurricane Rescue Horses May Be Headed To Auction

A pair of rescue horses from the Hurricane Harvey flood waters in August still have not been claimed and could be headed to auction according to the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office.  The pair was rescued from flood waters near University Drive and Highway 6 by College Station firefighters on August 27th.  They both suffered minor abrasions, but are doing just fine following their rescue.

Nearly a month after these horses were rescued, the owners still have not claimed them.  Officials told KBTX that if the horses aren’t claimed by next Tuesday, September 26, they will both go up for auction that day at Noon, at the Livestock Commission on Highway 21 in Bryan.  The money from the auction will be held for an unspecified amount of time for the owner if they do eventually come forward.  The horses will not be available for adoption before the auction.

If you believe the horses are yours or want more information, please contact the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office at (979) 361-4900.

    If these 2 unclaimed hurricane horses were sent to auction there is also a chance they would be purchased by kill buyers.
