Animal rescue farm devastated by flash flood

By Staff | May 13, 2011

Beth Adler’s passion is animal rescue, but after yesterday’s storm and subsequent flash flood, the safest place for farm animals in Tyler County has become a hazard.

Horse Feathers Farm and Rescue, located on Little Sancho Road near Middlebourne, is a non-profit organization situated on 15 acres of rolling pastures and is the home of nearly 60 rescued animals. The a flash flood, however, has reduced the farmland to mud, as downed fences and debris clutter the grounds. “I can’t believe this,” Adler said. “We are so overwhelmed!”

Adler is searching for volunteers to help with the cleanup effort. “We need people to help mend the fences and clean up the debris,” she said. “Whatever help we can get would be appreciated.”

Anyone interested in volunteering, should contact Adler at 304-758-4442.
