Equine Wellness will donate 40% of each subscription purchased using promo code EWA063 to Sand Stone Farms Rescue Effort.
Location of Sand Stone Farms Rescue Effort: Ortonville, MI
Year established: 2011
Number of staff/volunteers/foster homes: “Sand Stone Farms Rescue Effort has the help of about 20 people whose roles range from president to volunteer.”
Types of animals they work with: We specialize in mares in foal, and when we go to auction that is what we look for first – this way we are saving two lives instead of just one. We are not a breed specific rescue nor are we a sanctuary; our goal is to get the horses healthy and help them find new homes in which they will thrive.”
Fundraising initiatives: “We do a couple of fundraisers a month to help offset the costs of feed, hay, vetting, farriers, and other things that are needed. We solely run off of donations from wonderful people who support our cause.”
Favorite rescue story: “Minnie and Mouse came near death, but today they are both beautiful souls who are happy to be alive. To this day, Minnie still amazes those who come to see her at the farm; Mouse has been adopted but Minnie resides with us and graces us with her magnificent beauty and presence.”
Sand Stone Farms Rescue Effort was our February Rescue of the Month! Special thanks to all of their supporters for nominating SSFRE.
