We want to say a huge thank you to each and every person who donated to our last Auction Rescue Mission, without your support we would not have been able to rescue the precious 11 horses that we saved. They are all settling in and are happy to be in a quiet peaceful place. They all need names and we need your help naming them. Over the last 15 years of rescuing thousands of horses, we have a hard time coming up with names for new horses, so we need people like your to help name the horses we rescue.
All of the new horses that we have rescued at this weekend’s auction are now on our Facebook page. Please go over to our Facebook page by clicking here, click on the horses photos and suggest a name in the comments or like the name that you think best fits the horse. The name that has the most likes that is appropriate will be chosen for the horse’s name. Help name the horses, click here!
Thank you so much for your support and have a wonderful Thanksgiving – we are so thankful for you!
Thanks to all of your support, we were able to rescue an amazing 11 horses from the slaughter pipeline and our adoption partners rescued an additional 4 for a total of 15 lives saved last night!
We attended an auction we usually don’t go to. We visit various auctions in our area to see how the animals are treated at those auctions and what prices are. When our team arrived at the auction they found there were only about 25 horses in the holding pens waiting to be sold. They were able to spend some time with each horse and get to know them before the sale. This auction did not allow photos on their property, and we were unable to take any. After the auction was over, about 9:30 pm, the horses were settled into nice pens with fresh hay and clean water for the night. 3 of the horses we rescued went directly to one of our long-time adoption partners for placement.
When the horses arrived at our shelter Sunday morning, they were dewormed, vaccinated, microchipped and had their intake process done. After their intake process was done they were turned out in the pasture. The look of relief on their faces was so rewarding. They had all been through so much, and now to have a quiet, peaceful pasture to spend their quarantine in must be such a relief for them.
They are all very beautiful, and owe their life to your support of our rescue efforts. We couldn’t have saved these precious lives without your help. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, we’ll be posting each one and they will need names!
Thank you so much for your support, both financial and emotional. We couldn’t do it without you!
