We would like to send a huge Thank You to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) for their emergency grant to help with the Grass Valley horses! If you missed their rescue story, click here.
Their grant really helped cover the huge financial costs of rescuing, transporting, vetting, training, care and all the other costs incurred by this huge rescue, we cannot thank them enough!
Wednesday Cathy was hanging up a frame that has a feed bag in it. It is a special Horse Plus bag. It’s not the first time we have seen this bag, for the whole story, click here.
Thursday morning the alpacas were taking a morning snooze. They are so cute! These two are not for adoption as they help with weed control around the shelter.
It was a sad and exciting morning for all of our staff. Jason and Tawnee were hitting the road towards back east, they will be helping to get the Oklahoma shelter up and running. It was a hard goodbye as our team works so close together.
We had a rooster surrendered. His name is Buster and he’s very handsome. If you are looking for a pet rooster, we have plenty of them at the shelter.
Our farrier came out to work on the boys that were rescued from the last auction. She was not able to do them last time as they had just been gelded. Rowdy was super good for her, but while he was getting his feet done, a lady came out to look for a horse to adopt. She fell in love with Rowdy and put a hold on him.
Jason and Tawnee made it safely to their first layover ranch. They would be taking a break there. They are taking their personal horses and some of the shelter’s resident horses back east with them. Tawnee couldn’t say “Goodbye” to Phoenix and Angel and just had to take them with. We know they are going to love all the green grass back east.
