PULASKI, Tenn. (AP) - Animal rescue groups are caring for several dozen Tennessee walking horses removed from a Giles County farm whose owner is charged with animal cruelty.

The Humane Society says the animals were living in dirty conditions and had little food. The Giles County Sheriff’s Department seized 54 horses and seven goats on April 14.

The owner, Jeffrey Mitchell, has been charged with several counts of animal cruelty. The groups Volunteer Equine Advocates, Horse Haven and Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary are nursing the horses back to health and will find them new homes.

The Humane Society of the U.S. has donated $16,000 for the care of the horses.
