I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came together to support our last auction Rescue Mission. 30 horses were saved from the slaughter pipeline thanks to your support, we couldn’t have done it without you!
As soon as the horses arrived at our shelter their evaluation and intake process began. Upon arrival the horses are microchipped, dewormed and vaccinated with Flu Rhino, Strangles, EEE/WEE, Tetanus and West Nile. We start them on antibiotics because auction houses are notorious for contagious diseases. We also give them probiotics because they have been through so much stress. Our Veterinarian examined each horse to ensure that it is okay. Two of the horses (Sozo & Ahyoka) had to be humanely euthanized because their chronic issues were causing them a tremendous amount of pain and there was nothing we could do to fix them. Their bodies were just too broken. It is terribly sad but we are thankful that they were saved from the slaughter pipeline and were given peace and love in the end.
I have put together a video that shows all of the horses we saved with your help and them arriving at our shelter and getting turned out into what must have felt like heaven to them. To watch this short video – Click Here.
Again thank you so much for your support!
