An inewsource investigation of HiCaliber Horse Rescue that began in February 2018 has uncovered allegations of fraud, animal cruelty and improper veterinary practices at the Valley Center nonprofit. Multiple state and local government agencies also have been involved in investigating HiCaliber, including the California Veterinary Medical Board and state Attorney General’s Office.

Senior inewsource reporter Brad Racino has interviewed dozens of people and reviewed hundreds of pages of public records as part of this ongoing investigation.
