GREELEY, Colo. (AP) -- The Denkai Animal Sanctuary is seeking donations to save six abandoned horses.

Denkai officials say they fear the horses will be sold for slaughter at an auction on Wednesday.

A resident who fed and cared for the horses can no longer afford it, so the state required them to be listed as strays and they must be sold at auction after a 10-day hold.

According to the Greeley Tribune, about $1,000 of the $1,500 needed to buy the horses has been raised so far.
