Posted:
FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

A nonprofit organization on Thursday picked up more than a dozen starving and underweight horses from a struggling Auberry ranch. 

Kim Anderson, the owner of the horses who has been the focal point of an animal neglect investigation, surrendered them to Silverwings Horse Rescue. Seven of her nearly two dozen horses were picked up by the Central California SPCA earlier this week.

Officials at Silverwings say that helping the malnourished horses will not be an easy task.

The nonprofit is now taking care of more than 50 horses at its eastern Fresno County facility. Workers say that they need everything from  hay to portable fences. 

To make a donation, call 559-797-8867.

Silverwings also says it has set up "hay accounts" at A One Feeds store in Clovis and at Academy Feeds" in Sanger.

The SPCA announced on Thursday that it will release horses to approved homes for free.

The SPCA says it has 40 horses available for adoption from one to 25 years old and that they will continue the offer until all horses are adopted.

The organization says it will waive fees for approved adopters,transport the horse for free for you for up to 60 miles away and provide a $100 worth of hay for free.
