'Stay calm and stay home.'
That's what we're all being asked to do, and most of us are able to. During this 'time out', we are hearing from horse owners who've been temporarily put out of work and are very worried about not being able to buy the hay needed to keep their horses fed during this very unusual crisis. We appreciate their concern and their commitment to their horses- especially people who are giving rescue horses good homes. What we want to help avoid is for families to have to give up their horses as a result of this situation, as that can put them at great risk.
Our funds are not adequate to sufficiently respond to this nationwide crisis. Will you please help us if you can? Every donation matters. We appreciate that 'we're all in this together,' and keeping animals fed has to be a priority at times like this.
Thank you for any assistance that you can offer. Teamwork works!
