MORRIS, N.Y. (UPDATED) -- The Susquehanna SPCA worked with the Otsego County Sheriff's Office to rescue more than 30 horses from an owner in Roseboom who could no longer care for them.

The horses are being temporarily housed at the Otsego County Fairgrounds in Morris, but SQSPCA is looking for foster homes for the animals, or people willing to adopt them.

"We are grateful to the Fair Board for saving the day," said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes. "They are allowing us to use those barns. We are darn lucky that they are, because I don't know how we would have ever figured this out without them."

Haynes asks that people do not come directly to the fairgrounds.

"We're not gonna be able to use it again if we abuse it, and if people are just randomly going there to look at the horses, that's gonna be a really big problem," she said.

But we're not gonna be able to use it again if we abuse it and if people are just randomly going there to look at the horses, that's gonna be a really big problem

The horses were found in poor living conditions, and removed from the overwhelmed farmer's property on Thursday.

Anyone willing to foster or adopt any of the horses should contact the SQSPCA at 607-547-8111 ext. 102
