A recent Facebook post from the Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society shows a horse named Zinnia, who survived standing in the floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey for days before being rescued.
Rescue personnel took the horse in and began the long process of rehabilitation, giving this survivor the caring and loving treatment she deserves.
Upon being rescued, a veterinary checkup revealed Zinnia to have “river rot,” which has recently been seen in many horses forced to stand in floodwaters for prolonged periods of time. This caused her to lose patches of her skin and hair on her sides, back, and face.
Are you ready for ANOTHER adoption announcement?! This is a special one…Zinnia spent several days standing in…
While Zinnia’s past certainly makes for a devastating story, her future is what’s important.
After putting on some much-needed weight, a woman named Amber adopted Zinnia and will continue her treatment plan until the horse is fully recovered.
Zinnia’s rescue was made possible by the selfless efforts of staff and volunteers and donations from everyday animal lovers.
