My name is Jan Carter and I am the president of South Caroina Awarenes and Rescue for Equines, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to equine welfare. Trubador was originally rescued and rehabilitated by our organization, and placed in an adoptive home along with his buddy Savanna. In January 2014 I dropped in to do a welfare check only to find our Tru in the condition you see here. After months and months of work, and over $2000 in vet bills, Tru's weight and general health was restored. Several months ago we noticed a swelling on his muzzle that turned out to be two abcessed molars. Our vet attempted to pull the molars, but they were fractured and came out in pieces, leaving the roots of both teeth. We were in hopes that they remainder of these teeth would come out on their own, but that has not happened. That familiar "odor" indicating infection has returned. He cannot live on antibiotics. Tru is only ten (10) years old. Without this surgery his future is grim. There are no good alternatives. He needs to have surgery. Tru has a spirit as gentle as he is beautiful. Please consider helping Tru so he can continue on his way to happy life. No horse deserves that chance more. Please help us help him. His entire story is on our website at www.scequinerescue.org
