Economy Forces Some Horse Owners To Surrender Their Pets

A weak economy is forcing an increasing number of horse owners to surrender their pets. Now a rescue organization is stepping in to help those struggling to keep their prized pets.

In the last three months Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue of Loxahatchee, Florida has received more than 20 horses because their owners simply can't afford them.

A horse can cost upwards of $1,500 a month.

Rescue officials say it's pretty tearful when horse owners surrender their horses, but is thankful many owners are doing right by their horses.
