Many of you watched the channel 2 news report about our last euthanasia clinic, in particular Diane and her two horses. You can watch the video by clicking here. Diane loved her horses dearly but was unable to financially care for them any longer due to the bad economy. The horses were brought to the euthanasia clinic. One of them did not have a good quality of life, and was humanely euthanized, but Quevuo, seen below, was brought into the rescue in an attempt to find him a loving forever home.
After the report was aired, we received an amazing anonymous call from an individual offering to sponsor Quevuo so he could go home to Diane to live his life out with his mommy. This is such an amazing gesture of kindness from a complete stranger! To give a horse you have never met a life with a person you will never meet, just to give that horse life. What love and compassion.
Today Tawnee stumbled across the slew of comments that are on the Care2 contest for animal shelters. Many thanks to all of the wonderful people that left such touching messages. Emotional support is almost as important as financial support. If you would like to leave the comments or vote for us, click here.
A note from Jason – The photo’s of Quevuo taken today are the, without a doubt, luckiest photo’s around. Some days it is just harder to get the pictures on the blog than other days. Today was that day. Any harder, and it probably wouldn’t have been done. Ron used his personal camera, that has served him faithfully for years, to take the pictures. When he got home, he went to email them to us, but his computer would not accept the fact there were pictures on the card. So he called me, and I suggested that he try his laptop. Still no luck. So I had to interrupt my evening to drive an hour to get the camera to see what I could do. Sure enough, the pictures were not wanting to load onto a computer, and then horror of horrors the pictures just disappeared entirely. They simply vanished. Thankfully there is software made that will retrieve pictures and other data off of computers, although it is a very slow and time consuming process, as it scans each sector and kilobyte of the drive to see if it can find useful data. In the end the 6 photo’s of Quevuo took about 3 hours and $30 in software (but now we own the software for the next time it happens) to put in today’s blog. I hope you enjoy them!
