NORTHSTAR HORSE RESCUE's Fundraiser:

FIll Up the Hay Barn

THE STORY:

It's not every day you decide to start a horse rescue, but, two years ago, we got a call from a friend in a state of panic because six Thoroughbreds where she lived were about to ship out to slaughter for meat. We started a Facebook fundraiser, and managed to convince the feedlot broker to sell the horses, and we found new homes for them in a group effort, spanning several states. As a result, we decided to keep going. We didn't have a barn, and we didn't have pastures, but, after a few more off-site rescues, one of the fillies we had helped out of an auction turned up in trouble again, at an auction, and then on a broker's lot. And then three little yearling fillies needed us. So, we started building, and now we have a four-stall facility with fifteen acres of pasture. We do what we do on a shoestring. Sleep is a luxury! We may not have saved all 170,000 horses that go to slaughter every year, but, for those four fillies, we changed their lives. With your support, we can keep going and change the lives of more horses.

Right now, the price of hay is starting to rise. We will need to get through the winter with the four fillies, and it's going to be tight even finding hay, because the summer was so wet. We REALLY NEED to secure our winter supply of hay now, BUT WE CAN"T DO IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP. Can you please make a donation? A five dollar donation purchases one bale, which is a little more than a day's supply for one filly. A fifty dollar donation will purchase ten bales. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
