The grant was awarded to the nonprofit to help offset expenses from helping the Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office rescue 14 horses near Cle Elum earlier this year, according to Rodeo City Equine.
The horses were rescued from Emerald City Thoroughbred Project in Cle Elum in May. The owners, Deborah and James Kingcade, face multiple charge of animal cruelty in Kittitas County Superior Court.
Rodeo City Equine Rescue works to foster safe and sound horses that have quality lives. It works to rehabilitate and re-home horses and educate horse owners on proper horse care and maintenance. It also provides assistance to law enforcement for transporting, housing and feeding horses and cows in need.
