COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Dozens of starving horses may have been rescued from a Golden Gate Estates farm, but they're not out of the woods yet.

The two rescue groups that adopted the majority of sick horses are having a hard time paying for mounting medical costs.

Beauty's Haven, who adopted 12 of the animals has already spent $4,000 in medical bills. Half of that is for a filly still clinging to life.

The Feed Company in Naples is trying to rally the community to chip in and help Pure Thoughts, another rescue group which took 17 sick horses. Pure Thoughts tell WINK News it takes $102 a day just to feed the horses.

If you would like to help you can go to The Feed Company on Collier Boulevard, or log onto Beauty's Haven and Pure Thoughts websites to donate.
