The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office opened a large animal rescue facility a year ago to deal with the growing number of neglected, abused and abandoned large animals. Now the program just received a nearly $4000 grant from the Animal Legal Defense Fund. It's a national organization based in California. Lt. Shane Nelson says the money will help fund the County's animal rescue and shelter: “What this is, is 23 acres of County owned property over by our landfill. This property consists of a barn, several fenced areas along with several animal shelters out there.” Lt. Nelson says the money will go toward feed, vet care and medications for the animals.
