HAMPSHIRE, Ill. (AP) - A northern Illinois animal rescue organization has announced it’s trying to find new homes for 75 abandoned horses in Kane County.

The Barrington-based Hooved Animal Rescue and Protection Society is working with Hands and Hooves of Chicago to find homes for quarter horses that have lived in inadequate conditions for two years.

Donna Ewing says rescuers have less than a month to get the horses off the leased property in Hampshire.

Ewing says the previous owner of the horses fell on hard times after the death of her husband and daughter and eventually lost the family farm. She was unable to continue care of the horses.

The animals are living at a facility not large enough to house them. Ewing says they’ve had limited human handling recently.
