BENEFITING: Horses for Harmony
In just a few years Horses For Harmony has introduced many area youth to the wonderful world of horses and explored other agricultural avenues. Our latest adventure (suggested by a teen in our program) involves increasing awareness of America’s unwanted horses, many who end up being shipped to slaughter. With donations we are able to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and re-home kill pen equines and continue in our mission. There are grassroots efforts underway all across America to rescue slaughter bound horses from kill pens and provide these animals with a second chance and humane care. Horses For Harmony wants to be prepared for the next horse in need of rescue.
When you are involved in rescue, you see beauty differently. We choose many horses others pass by. The young untrained yearlings with their whole lives ahead of them, others who obviously need medical intervention and care. What becomes the most rewarding is watching the changes in these animals, from the resignation of hope to confident, trusting horses ready to embrace the future. Every horse we rescue completes a full 30 day quarantine. They receive proper nutrition, vaccinations, veterinarian and farrier care, and most of all love. We watch them flourish under loving care and find homes that will love them for the rest of their lives. But, sometimes we do not know what we will encounter with a rescued horse. It is these unforeseen circumstances that can break a rescue. Resources that were allocated to treating many other horses must now be put to use on one. For this reason rescues must often let other desperate horses in kill pens go un-rescued. We have many special needs horses who require long term veterinarian care and medication, perhaps it is the reason their previous owners gave them up---but we will not.
Your gift to us helps provide compassionate care, companionship, training, safety and veterinary care for rescued horses at our quarantine facilities in Texas and at the farm in Tennessee. Your gift also supports our Learning Programs and educates the next generation about the plight of America’s unwanted horses and the crisis facing slaughter bound equines. Last but not least, your gift helps fund urgent needs for these eighteen horses already in quarantine, and will also benefit those horses waiting to come.
Gifts do not have to be large, every gift is vital to our success, $5.00 will provide a bale of hay for our horses or a textbook for our youth. $25.00 will purchase a bag of feed or a safety helmet. Even small gifts do great works.
Your gift will meet the horses' greatest needs, and help us to better utilize today’s technology to educate others about the challenges facing America’s unwanted horses.
