Twelve horses and 13 sheep rescued from a Somerset Ranch in El Dorado County last month are now available for adoption from El Dorado County Animal Control. The animals, believed to have been neglected for years, have now received medical assessments, needed grooming, medication, and other care to prepare them for a new home.

The animals are currently being sheltered at The Grace Foundation in El Dorado Hills through a cooperative agreement with Animal Control. Pictures of the animals are available at under the “Pet Adoption” section. Individuals may also view the animals in person at The Grace Foundation.

For more information on the adoption process, please call the shelter at (530) 621-7631. The Grace Foundation can be reached at (916) 941-0800. Bids for the horses can also be submitted at the El Dorado County Animal Control located at 1120 Shaktori Drive in South Lake Tahoe.
