More than 100 horses rescued in Arkansas

It looks as though a number of very special animals have been given a second chance at life. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has reported that they saved more than 100 horses who were at death's door last month.

According to the nonprofit, authorities arrived at a farm in Fulton County, Arkansas, to find the creatures in poor shape. Most of the horses were suffering from starvation, open wounds, and bone fractures.

The organization's website also explains that many members of the animal rescue team worked through the holidays in order to bring the animals back to tip-top condition.

"There is no doubt in any of our minds that this is where we belong - we owe these animals a second chance," said Kat Destreza, ASPCA Southeast Director of Field Investigations and Response.

The team's hard work must have paid off, as it was reported that most of the horses are faring well and regaining their strength and health.

According to its website, the ASPCA was founded in 1866 by Henry Bergh and was the first humane organization in the United States.
