Benefit for Babe

$858 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 3 months
Every year, horses die from neglect, ignorance, or human cruelty. Rescue facilities overflow around the country in the attempt to stop needless suffering. Serenity Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation saves horses, ponies, and minis from kill pens, neglectful owners, and hoarding situations. Each horse brought into Serenity is given vet care, safe boarding facilities, and socialization, as the volunteers work to adopt them out to forever homes.

I have been a volunteer at Serenity for several years. And as many of you know, found my beloved Chance through their program.

Every horse matters, but every once in a while a very special horse arrives at the farm.

Babe is an elderly mare who endured almost twenty years in appalling conditions. She was kept alone in a tiny, muddy backyard. Horses are herd animals and to confine one alone is as bad as solitary confinement for a human being. She suffered from a lack of nutrition and vet care, and untreated health problems.

She is also one of the sweetest horses the volunteers at Serenity have ever known.

Her long-term neglect led to expensive vet bills. Though already stretched thin, Serenity couldn’t turn away this amazing animal. While this fundraiser is to offset the added expenses of bringing Babe onto the farm, Serenity’s mission serves so much more than just one horse. Your donation will make Babe’s recovery possible, and allow Serenity to continue to care for all their animals.

Everyone who donates will be automatically entered to win books! Check back for the growing list of authors supporting Babe and Serenity.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to the campaign so far. Babe has come a long way, but she still has a long way to go. Serenity also has many other horses to care for. Horses like Spirit and Keona. Donate today and be in the running for the next drawing for books!

Babe is doing great in her new home. She is now up to date with her vaccines and has gotten several pounds of sand out of her stomach - ingested from years of eating dirty hay off of muddy ground. She's getting her teeth done, something that should be done annually, but she hasn't had in quite a while. She's still recovering from terrible sores on her back legs, but continues to improve every day. She's definitely the farm sweetheart - getting lots of love and attention. So grateful to all of you and our donating authors for helping Babe and all the horses at Serenity.
Always happy to get attention!
