We are so thankful for your support of our rescue and sheltering work in 2015! We couldn’t have done it without your support, both financial and emotional. We look forward to partnering with you in 2016 to rescue even more.
In 2015 we rescued 447 animals. They were 342 Horses, 24 Donkeys, 20 Ponies/Minis, 7 Mules, 6 Goats, 1 Sheep, 3 Llamas, 23 Chickens, 2 peacocks, 10 Cats, 5 dogs and 4 Rabbits. We had 119 horses surrendered into our Last Act of Kindness program, and of those, 27 were able to be rehabilitated and adopted into loving homes. 151 horses were rescued from auction, 55 of those horses were rescued because they needed humane euthanasia and were given the Last Act of Kindness. 96 of the auction rescue horses were adopted into great homes. Our horse euthanasia rate was 20% including the animals rescued from auction specifically for the Last Act of Kindness program. Between our 3 shelters we had 232 adoptions!
Our total estimated expenses for 2015 was $220,639. 68% of every dollar spent went directly to helping the animals at the shelter, with only 32% going to shelter lease and staffing. We are thankful for our volunteers that make such a high percentage of each dollar donated go directly to helping animals in need. We are able to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt into loving homes animals for an average of less than $500 per animal.
Again, thank you for your support in 2015!
