Area group needs help caring for horses found starving

ROGERSVILLE — A Hawkins County mother and daughter who rescue and care for unwanted and neglected horses are asking for help from the community to care for three starving animals they took in Wednesday at the request of the sheriff’s office.

Last year, Mollie Bird and her mother, Melissa Hull, were awarded 501(c)3 nonprofit status for their horse rescue organization, Treadway Equine Animal Rescue Sanctuary (TEARS).

The sanctuary is located on their farm on Route 66 north of Rogersville near the Clinch Valley Road intersection.
