A Montgomery County animal rescue group removed three frail ponies yesterday from East Baltimore stables used by street vendors after two animals died of exposure and starvation there -- a few yards from about 100 bales of hay."They were to be picked up on Jan. 5 by the city, and nothing's been done," said Sylvia Block, of the Baltimore-based Citizens for Animals. She said she received an anonymous complaint about the five animals Dec. 29, and immediately notified the city's Animal Control Bureau and health commissioner.

Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Lisbon, which has found homes for close to 1,000 abused and neglected horses in its 14 years, is looking for a permanent home of its own. After renting space in two locations, "what we want to do is get our own farm so we won't ever have to move again," said Kathleen Schwartz, who founded the organization with her husband, Allan. The nonprofit has outgrown the 20-acre farm it rents. When it moved from Mount Airy in 1995, the rescue had 37 horses. Now it rehabilitates 55 horses at a time, putting a strain on the two barns, several paddocks and six "run-in sheds" on the property.

COLLINS, Miss. - When Allan Schwartz pulled up in his truck at the Collins Exotic Animal Orphanage yesterday, towing a horse trailer with a 300-gallon water tank, owner Betty White exclaimed, "That was like God came down." Huge tigers sprawled listlessly in what little shade was left after Hurricane Katrina's howling winds stripped the trees. Bobcats, panthers and wolves jogged around their wire enclosures in the once-tidy roadside zoo, an attraction in this hamlet of 3,000 that felt the storm's fury even though it was 80 miles inland.

Jenny stepped quickly off the trailer into her new home, striding over to Jack, who seemed interested in the fresh arrival. The two donkeys leaned their gray faces toward each other for an instant, then Jack followed her around a bit before Jenny trotted off, exploring the far ends of her fenced pasture. The gray-and-white Jerusalem donkey became the 18th livestock resident of the new Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary and Eco Retreat in Ellicott City, but that's if you don't count the tabby cat, Barnie.
