How To Report Equine Abuse Or Neglect In Kentucky

  1. Report it to the county's Animal Control
  2. If that doesn't work, contact the county's Sheriffs Department
  3. If you need further assistance after that, contact the Equine Program at the Office of the State Veterinarian at 502-782-5918

**According to Kentucky Revised Statute 525.130, caregivers of all species of animals shall provide "adequate food, space, drink, and health care. Failure to do so is punishable by law."

Each Kentucky county is responsible for enforcing state and local statutes.  If you see a neglected or abandoned horse it should be reported to the local officials in the manner described above.
