Equine rescue center new location 06/11/12 8:40p.m. TDH

A shelter service for horses and other equines has moved operations from its hollister-area location to a new site in watsonville.  The “equine rescue center and sanctuary” was founded as a no-kill shelter in 2009.  it has been located in paicines, (outside of Hollister), but operations have been relocated to a 250-acre site near highway-129, off of watsonville’s vanoni road.  the shelter’s volunteers are currently caring for 48-equines, including horses, donkeys, and mules.   Much of the work to move the shelter involved making arrangements to transport the dozens of large animals, many of which are extra timid because of past abuse.    For information on volunteering or adoption, visit the website: equine rescue center dot com.
