SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

SCRAPS continues to care for dozens of horses taken last week in their biggest seizure ever, and now they're getting help from a national organization: The ASPCA.

Last Friday, SCRAPS seized 63 horses from a ranch in west Spokane County. Investigators found dozens of horses with no water and only moldy food to eat. 11 of them were in such bad shape they were taken to local vets for medical attention.

This isn't the first time horses were taken from the west Spokane County ranch.

In July, over two dozen horses were seized from the same address on Deno road. Their owner Jan Hickerson is already facing animal cruelty charges and is now facing even more.

Without the resources to care for the neglected horses, SCRAPS asked for help from the ASPCA.

The team will spend the next month at the Spokane County Fairgrounds nursing the horses back to health before they can be adopted.

    AIRWAY HEIGHTS, Wash.- The city of Airway Heights is still flushing out contaminated water out of their system. The city says they’ll be done with that process Monday morning, and then they’ll be able to send a sample for testing. The contamination likely came from two chemicals found in a firefighting foam that Fairchild Air Force base used to use.
