We Were There—ASPCA Assists in Montana Llama Rescue
On February 3, the ASPCA presented a $20,000 grant to Southeast Llama Rescue (SELR) to help transport 300 llamas to foster care facilities across the country. The llamas were among more than 1,000 severely neglected animals abandoned at the Montana Large Animal Sanctuary after its financial collapse last December. Horses, emus, bison, pot-bellied pigs and cows were among the other species rescued from the scene.
The llamas will be relocated to foster homes in various states—including California, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Illinois, Colorado, Indiana, New York, New Mexico, Missouri, Washington, Utah and Texas—where they will remain for at least 45 days to address medical needs and provide rehabilitation. Once in good health, the llamas will be made available for adoption and placed in loving forever homes.
“These animals were in desperate need of food, medical care and socialization—it’s encouraging to see so many groups working together to give them the second chance they deserve,” adds Cardona.
