It all started with a wild mustang.
One day in September, several years ago, Caitlin Cimini rescued her first animal on a whim — a wild mustang she named Halona. She had learned that the mare was destined for slaughter, so without a plan in mind, Caitlin bought the mustang from the federal government’s Bureau of Land Management for $125. It was a decision that changed her life forever.
“I volunteered for probably 15 different rescues and have been around horses all my life. I ended up getting jobs and continued saving animals. I never stopped. The animal rescue thing has always been in me, but I never realized it.”
“It was so amazing and humbling,” says Caitlin. “It really restored my faith in humanity.”
Special thanks to Caitlin, Len, and all the critters at Rancho Relaxo.
