$3,000 MATCH GAME FOR THE HORSES
Juleen Gutchess, a wonderful supporter of Beauty’s Haven, has most generously offered a $3,000 Match Game to be designated to the food and ongoing care of the Beauty’s Haven herd. All donations up to $3,000 will be matched ~ $5 will become $10, $10 will become $20, $50 will become $100 and so on. Juleen’s match game will enable Beauty's Haven Farm & Equine Rescue to further its most important mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for neglected, abused, surrendered, and abandoned horses, horses like our newest arrivals, Sophie and Willow, and to grant each equine that enters through our gates, a second chance at life, which they all so truly deserve. Won’t you join us in our mission? This is such a wonderful opportunity to increase your donation twofold. All contributions are so greatly appreciated and no donation is ever considered as being too small. All donations toward the Match Game may also be forwarded directly through other means such as PayPal, snail mail, etc. All offline donations will be reflected in the Crowdrise updates. So, when we hit the $3000 mark it will morph into $6000!
Beauty’s Haven Farm & Equine Rescue, Inc. is a grassroots 501(c)(3) non-profit equine rescue organization. Our mission is to help equine in need, educate the public about proper equine care, provide assistance when possible to horse owners experiencing a short period of financial hardship, and provide information regarding the steps that must be taken when one encounters an equine that is being abused or neglected. We also try to involve the youth of today as they will be the horse owners of tomorrow. Through our helping horses, we are also helping members of our community by raising public awareness and knowledge of the standards of care that are necessary to keep horses safe and healthy.
At Beauty’s Haven, equine that have been neglected, abused, and/or abandoned are given a second chance at life, a life without pain and worry, a life with dignity and respect. We welcome equine that are no longer needed, wanted or are useful to their owners and we place them in loving, forever homes. We try to find placement for as many equine as possible before they end up in the slaughter pipeline where they would be at a high risk of being sold to kill buyers, then trucked across the borders where they would be brutally slaughtered for human consumption.
Beauty’s Haven offers sanctuary to a limited number of equine with special needs regardless of age or breed. We have taken in babies as young as two hours old, pregnant mares and senior horses - our oldest rescue was 43 years old! We oftentimes accept equines into our program that other rescues may refuse, due to the time consuming and/or costly rehabilitation needs of the horse. Quality of life is always a factor in determining the future of each equine. We are pro-life and we do not euthanize any equine to make room for another.
We have an excellent care team that includes professionals in Western and holistic medicine, dentistry and equine podiatry. Equine will be humanely euthanized, however, when they are experiencing more pain than pleasure, are terminally ill or critically injured and all courses of treatment have been thoroughly explored. We will never permit an animal to suffer. We have taken in equine with birth defects, broken bones, mutilations, cancer, blindness, COPD and Cushing’s disease as well as those that were starved and extremely emaciated and had other serious diseases. On occasion, we also rescue other animals in need such as dogs, cats, pigs, birds, and goats.
