Types of animals they work with: “We take in horses that have been abused, abandoned, and neglected,” says Karen Pack (Marketing). “Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home horses.”

Fundraising targets: “We do not have a current fundraiser in place, but we are always accepting donations.”

Favorite rescue story: “Romeo was rescued August of 2013. He was literally skin and bones (a 0.5 on the Henneke scale) with many issues that needed medical attention. He was also still a stallion. We weren’t even sure he was going to make it. The biggest concern was he had no lower bowel function, so he was oozing pus and his rectum wouldn’t close. We introduced Romeo and his story to our Facebook fans and they instantly fell in love with him. A prayer chain began and the next day his rectum closed and he showed us he was ready to fight. Today, he is a loving, healthy, happy gelding. He’s not completely done with his rehabilitation, but is in the final stages before being ready for adoption.”
