Today has been an amazing day! We actually ended up rescuing 51 horses because one of the horses we rescued came with her baby, that wasn’t counted separately. The day started out with Tawnee and her team at the auction getting the horses sorted and ready to come to the shelter. It took 5 big trailers to haul them all. It was quite the process. When they arrived at our shelter the intake process began. The horses were evaluated, scanned for microchips, dewormed, vaccinated, hoof care, dental care, gelded, whatever they needed, they got. Our vet was on site to ensure that each horse was seen to for any medical needs it had. Out of the 51 precious lives, 2 had to be humanely euthanized to relieve their intense suffering, there was nothing else that could be done for them. It’s always hard only getting to know them for a short time and saying goodbye. 13 more horses are critical and we really hope they will pull through, but if it is determined that the Last Act of Kindness is the right decision for them, we will follow the veterinarian’s advice. We are glad they are not suffering on their way to Mexico.
There are so many amazing horses in this group! We will be posting each one on our Facebook tomorrow and asking for name suggestions, so keep a close eye on our page. We have posted a video with pictures of all of the horses, you can watch the video by clicking here.
We cannot thank each and every person who donated enough who made this incredible rescue possible. Tawnee did a video of the day, you can watch it at this link: 51 Save Safe at Horse Plus Humane Society
Again we want to thank everyone for the huge outpouring of support. We are still $6,338 short of our goal to rescue and shelter 50 horses. They have been rescued, can we count on you to help us meet our goal?
