HOUSTON A pony that was rescued after it was dragged behind a pickup truck by its owner was adopted Saturday from the Houston SPCA.

SPCA officials said Chance will now live on a 77-acre ranch in Tyler with Jaz and Pepper, two other Houston SPCA horses rescued from deplorable conditions back on 2011 from Coryell County.

We are excited to help him find a good faith place where he is never abused and just finds love, said Chance s new owner, Vicki.

They said they plan to train him to be a therapy horse so he can help abused children.

Chance suffered seven injuries when he was tied and dragged behind his previous owner s truck on May 7.

During his five-week stay at the Houston SPCA, he received medical care, comfort and was showered with lots and love and attention by our staff and volunteers.
