BATAVIA, OH (FOX19)- Malnourished animals found at a Clermont County farm have been moved to safety.

The Clermont County Animal Shelter says it moved the six thoroughbred horses, donkey and pony found starving at a farm in Bethel, to a private home in the county that has an unoccupied horse facility.  That facility was donated and includes a horse barn, hot and cold running water, and facilities for exercise.

The Animal Shelter is in the process of tracking the owners of the animals, through their tattoos.

Meanwhile horse-lovers are rallying to help the malnourished and neglected animals.

"I just wanted to help the horses feel better," said 14-year-old Sara Grabowski of New Richmond; she and her mom dropped off food and supplies today at the Clermont County Animal Shelter.  "I really like horses and wanted to do what I could when I found out that the animals were hungry," said Sara.

Aidan, Tristan, Kayla, and Lindsey Younger pooled their Christmas money to buy items for the animals; they have a rescued horse at home with one eye and arthritis. 

"We're donating because we care about horses," said the kids, almost in unison.

Volunteers caring for the animals say they are all doing well and are receiving daily veterinary care; an experienced rescue and rehabilitation team is also tending to their care.
