ButterBean here - I dont usually do this but this Horse Rescue is local to us and a friend e-mailed this to me. With no better way to know how to get it out there I have gone to the blog .... if you can help them I know they will appreciate it.
State of the Rescue: Almost every day someone will ask me how things are going at the rescue. Well folks it's not going good. Right now it's REALLY BAD. The number of unwanted horses keeps going up right along with the bills to take care of them, and no funds are coming in. We have maxed out the number of horses we can care for right along with every rescue credit card and personal credit cards so that we can care for these horses in need. We can't do it anymore without some help. At this point all I can do is Plead to each of you for HELP. If you are a family with a horse in your life you know how costly it can get. Multiply that one horse by 25. We don't ask for these horses, we don't go to auctions and buy them. They are sent to us mostly because somewhere along the line someone has turned their back on them and left them to die.
The Financial numbers are depressing and scary so far for 2010 RVHR has received $58,594.00 in donations and spent $74,829.22 to care for them. As of today 9/12/2010 we need to come up with $16,235.22 just to zero out the past due amounts.
Can you help with just a $5.00 donation? We're not asking for hundreds or even thousands of dollars we're just asking for $5.00 bucks.
Here is our link to GiveDirect if you would like to make a online donation.
