It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year & #GivingTuesday!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: It's time for one of our favorite holiday traditions! As we count down to 2021, join us every day this month as we share stories from the barn that show how your support has helped horses in 2020. With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support. It is not only December 1st, but also #GivingTuesday! #GivingTuesday is one global day dedicated to giving, volunteerism, and kindness in our communities! Whether you give your time, voice, or donations, we hope you can help make a difference in the lives of our horses TODAY. To kick off December and #GivingTuessday, here is our first story about our first intakes of 2020 - Alaina, Cassadee, and Frankie! When Alaina, a 20-ish senior mustang mare arrived, her hooves were extremely long, her teeth were in dire need of care, and she was mildly lame in her front hooves. Alaina's hooves were trimmed, dental care provided, vaccines were updated, deworming was done, and she got a microchip. Radiographs revealed that she had extensive ringbone in her front pastern joints. She was started on a daily med to help with arthritis and ringbone. Fortunately, it helped tremendously, and Alaina was much more comfortable. Alaina is a very sweet, mild-mannered mare. She is social and willing, and enjoyed the attention of our volunteers. It wasn't too long before Alaina found her forever home as a companion to another mare that had just lost her long time friend! The two made an instant connection, and her new mom couldn't be happier. Cassadee is a 19-ish senior paint (yup) mare. Like Alaina, her basic care had been deferred, but fortunately, she wasn't as impacted as Alaina. Cassadee's hooves were trimmed, dental care provided, vaccines ...

Save Your Ass Rescue Newletter

The following is from Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue: A Very Thankful Giving Tuesday As many of our newsletter supporters know, last year was very challenging for SYA and all involved. We went through a major farm pandemic, whereas this year we are navigating through a worldwide pandemic. There is no way we would have been able to get through last year without all of our caring supporters to help us, financially and with your kind encouragement. So to those of you who are reading, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to continue to save donkeys and mules in need. We could not do it without you. Some of you may remember Walton and Hobie, who we rescued just a year ago this month. They could not have landed in a better home. These guys have gotten the happy ending they so deserved. Thanksgiving By Hobie Oh, hi! My name is Hobie, and I’m living in a dream! My BFF is Walton, we are such a happy team. But it was just a year ago we knew that we would die Without some help from folks like you, and let me tell you why. I wasn’t always happy! I was used for basketball. My bones and knees still show the scars of many slips and falls. Walton was a fine show-horse, somebody’s pampered boy Until the day they let him go, discarded like a toy. We landed in a killer’s lot, lost, shivering, and scared. We were starving, cold, and wounded, and it seemed nobody cared. The other horses on the lot were fighting for their lives. Their circumstances were as bad as those we have described. They kicked and bit and drove us off so we could never eat. My gentle friend ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: UPDATE ON THE FAB 5 LOL I am closing this rescue trip with the beautiful LADY LOVE. She is a slaughter intercept, and is blind in one eye. Her eye is a hot mess, and very painful. Doc checked it and said most likely I will have to have it removed when I get home. She already has a potential adopter, and is very sweet. I was about to head home. Y'all had saved 1814 were adopted, and I had the perfect trailer load home. 2 adults and 6 babies. Suddenly, 2 days later, I have 19 to take home. This turned into a 29 horse rescue. I need to get home, but am waiting on another trailer and the new paperwork for the latest group. Thank you to everyone who has donated. I realize that funds are really tight, and I so appreciate any and all donations. We still have quite a ways to go to finish paying the hay bill, cover the last vet bill which was over $1000+ for the first 18 Coggins, and now we just did another 11 blood draws. I know God has this and that is why I keep on plugging away, even when it seems like it is just too much, especially being here by myselfI also want to THANK EVERYONE for the love and support. I could not do this without y'all. More thanks to all the ladies (and Danny Dustin lol) who continue to step up and help find homes and keep me grounded. I am so thankful for all of it. Please stay safe. help if you can, say a prayer and have a wonderful holiday! THANK YOU to each and every one of you who has stepped up to donate, share, say a prayer and just send your love and support ...

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: ANOTHER 911 - URGENT CALL FROM THE SHIPPER! - There are currently FIVE MORE (5) orphans sitting on the scales at the shippers. I acted on FAITH and made an appointment for vetting tomorrow. However, I have already had to turn down different groups due to dwindling finances. Before I can say YES to saving these 5 (and probably more), I have to know that we can afford to safely save them. The last group I had to turn down is being shared on our pages. Luckily some of them are finding homes. However, I CANNOT commit if I cannot take care of them. Many of these colts are "shipping size". Most likely they would be trampled in the trailer by the big horses, but if not, they will be be slaughtered. LET'S SAVE THE "FAB FIVE". THESE BABIES NEED YOUR HELP ASAP! THE CLOCK IS RUNNING OUT QUICKLY! I am also standing by for horses from another catcher.. PLEASE help save these precious lives. Out of the last 18, 14 have already been adopted and are simply waiting for their paperwork to get here so they can go home. We need to save this last groupI need to get back to NV, but am willing to stay long enough to get these last ones vetted and ready to go. The clock is ticking! PLEASE SAVE THEM! Sadly, we are still a long ways off from having enough funds to pay for the hay. Please remember that part of saving them is feeding them until they can be adopted. THANK YOU to each and every one of you who has stepped up to donate, share, say a prayer and just send your love and support. You make this work, you save all the lives. So THANK YOU!! This is ...

Ralphie Says Hi!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Thanks to you, Ralphie is doing well! Ralphie is a handsome 17-year old American Cream Draft who came to AAE last month. Shortly after his arrival, he had surgery to remove a growth in his right eye and a mass on his hind left pastern. Thanks to our wonderful AAE community, we were able to raise funds to help with his surgery and biopsy costs! Don't remember Ralphie and his story? Catch up here. The surgery went well, and Ralphie returned to AAE a few days later. His neighbors were welcoming, and he settled in nicely. Unfortunately, Ralphie soon developed significant drainage from his eye, and he had to return to the clinic. A few sutures were removed for cleaning and drainage, leaving about a quarter size opening into Ralphie's orbit. The orbit would need to be flushed and cleaned for the next several days until the tissue was healthier. As it healed, the orbit area filled with granulation tissue and after a week or so, he was able to return to AAE. While Ralphie was at the clinic, we received some good news - the biopsy of the eye tissue showed clean margins, and the leg tissue was not a sarcoid and not cancerous! Ralphie has been back at AAE for about 10 days. His eye is nearly healed, and is leg is healing, slowly. He's happy to be home and we're happy he's here! Thank you for supporting Ralphie and AAE!

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Yet another 911 for 9 babies tomorrow and 10?, possible more on Thursday. I literally have tears in my eyes as I type this. But God says He will never give us more than we can handle. (I feel like I am getting close though.) I WAS TOLD TO EXPECT 19 more babies - MINIMUM, and we all know there are usually always more when I get there......... It is almost too much to bear. Honestly I am exhausted, and I need to get ready for winter at the rescue. I wasn't even home 24 hours before I got the call. The fact is though, with YOUR HELP, we CAN save them, so it makes it really, really, hard to just "stay home" because I am exhausted and funds are too low. There are 9 more babies at the shipper's RIGHT NOW! I have to say yes and have less than 24 hours to take delivery of the first 9. These babies simply have NO WHERE ELSE TO GO! No bullets, no knives. We need to save them. Driving back to WA and doing this rescue is honestly the LAST thing I want to do right now. I have only been home for a minute. However, I know they were put in front of us because we CAN save them with your help. As some of you may have seen my fundraiser for the hay delivery, I am sure you are aware how tight funds are. But I have FAITH, and I HAVE FAITH that someone out there wants these babies saved!. So I am asking on behalf of these babies for folks to come together once again and donate anything you can. I do NOT want to say yes to the first group, and not save the next group. Sadly, chances ...
