In southern Italy, at a riding school in Campania, reside two horses that are in need of our help to ensure them a well-deserved retirement. Gummi Bear is a 23-year- old riding school horse and Rihanna is an 8-year-old, former jumping horse.

They are tired.

They long to live out their lives in peace.

They deserve a retirement in green pastures.

They have earned restful days filled with carrots and apples and hay.

Our Mission is to bring Gummi Bear and Rihanna to our Sanctuary in Southern Germany to give them the respite they truly deserve. To join their old friend Miracle, who is retired and was rescued by Olivia earlier this year. Miracle is so happy. He has a new lease on life and wants the same for the other horses.

Our campaign will cover the necessary transfer paperwork and veterinary certification, transport of the horses to Germany, and boarding, food and veterinary care for the next year.

Please take a few minutes and watch our video. We hope it will inspire you to help us to give Gummi Bear and Rihanna the happy retirement they deserve.

Every donation, no matter the size, has an impact.

Animals Without Limits (AWL) is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to the care and protection of senior and ill animals. Your tax-deductible donation will allow us to honor these horses and so many other animals.

Another beautiful soul that whispers, "I am someone".

Help us be able to give sweet Julia 16 years old a worthy retirement that she so deserves.

We want to give her everything that she possible needs. From veterinarian care, dentist, farrier, food, vitamins, and equipments.
WE have zero. (the 3,490 dollars has been used for Miracle, GummiBear and Rihanna. It doesn't go on zero even when money been transferred to the horse bank account.)

We are truly thankful that good hearted people turn to us for help rescuing horses. However, we are lacking funds. Please help us be able to help Julia to a beautiful comfortable life full with good health and love.

Small and big donation are welcomed. They save lives.

We beg you, help us help Julia.

That's Amore!

Why the Hate?

Dear Friends and Followers,

I feel compelled to address some comments that have come to my attention regarding Olivia’s involvement in our horse rescue campaigns and her role with AWL and our horses. It makes me very sad that I even had to take the time to write this, but I want to go on record with our petition.

Anyone who knows me, and AWL, will know that I have always included my children, where appropriate, in our rescue missions. I believe very strongly in teaching compassion and helping my children to learn how wonderful and enriching relationships with animals can be for our lives.
And I hope that one day they will help me to spread the word about animal rescue as they go out into the world.

Recently, my daughter Olivia has been playing an active role in our horse rescues. And she has been visible in our campaigns and fundraising efforts.
She has her own private horse, Sunshine and is on her way to becoming an accomplished rider. But I wanted her to understand the plight of horses who are not as fortunate as Sunshine. And to understand the complicated and very challenging process of rescuing those horses. And also, the care involved once they are rescued.

Somehow, somewhere along the line, some people have started to speculate that we are rescuing horse FOR Olivia. And the story is being changed into Olivia somehow having a very privileged position in this process. I don’t know the motivation.
Jealousy? Bitterness? Ignorance?
Whatever the case, it has resulted in Olivia being insulted, bullied, made to feel bad for doing something good that comes from her heart and her love of animals.
So going forward I am going to keep Olivia’s contributions to our horse rescue missions more private.
She will, of course, help me to care for these wonderful animals who need a team to keep them well. But I will not shine a spotlight on her until I feel it will be safe and productive to do so.

The animal rescue community is full of wonderful people. And so many times we must waste energy defending our good works against those who spew hate.
I continue to hope against all hope that I will not have to do this again.

Miracle, Rihanna, and GummiBear are getting better for each day that goes by.

Thanks for YOUR help we can keep it this way.

We know it is expensive to take care of one horse need.
And, we have been told numerous times it would be cheaper to put the horses down.

We refuse to give up!
Our goal is to give THANKS back for every child/person they have had on their backs for twenty years. For the sweat, they have dropped for us humans. For all the money they have made us humans earn while they have been working hard.

It’s time to give back!
Respect any life!
“Thank you, what can I do for you now?”

GummiBear blood test cost 100 Euro but it’s important to get the correct analyze. He is on heart medicine, zinkmedication, and Cushing meditation

Every month we have a cost of 1000 euro and that is not including other needs, like the dentist (coming next week) farrier and other veterinarian costs.

We please ask for your kindness and help them have a great, healthy, relaxing, time they have left on our Earth.

That's Amore!
