The Roanoke Valley Horse
Rescue is open and operating.The only thing its not doing these days is taking in anymore horses.
The owners say that’s only because they’re so full.
The rescue in Franklin County has been taking in abused, neglected and
unwanted horses for nine-years.
When we visited just three-weeks ago, several of the horses were still
recovering from the equine illness that forced the owners to close its gates for
a self-imposed quarantine this summer.
Even though there have been some bumps in the road, the rescue says it will
continue to the serve the community.
“We are planning for the future. We’ve got some great plans. We’re breaking
ground this week on the spot for a medical barn, so we’re really moving forward
with the plans that we’ve got, so we’re not going anywhere anytime soon!” says
Jason Muncy, Chairman of the Board for the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue.
The Muncy’s think the rumor may have started after The Roanoke Valley Equine
Clinic announced on its facebook page it would be closing at the end of this
month, after nearly 30-years in business.
