Fire Affects Sunrise Horse Rescue

Lindsay Merget,  an inspirational woman, friend, Equine
Therapeutic Riding Instructor at Equi-Ed Therapeutic Riding Center and the Managing Director at Sunrise Horse Rescue has dealt with a lot of adversity over the past 36 hours.  The Tubbs Fire in Santa Rosa, CA roared through her neighborhood decimating her home and many others.  Even with this devastation, her main focus and energy is the safety of all 20 rescue horses at the Sunrise Horse Rescue Facility in Napa county. Lindsay and her team are also assisting other ranches as they are forced to evacuate.

Sunrise Horse Rescue facility has been greatly affected by the Tubbs Fire as the winds ripped apart most of their pipe panel shelter.  

Your donation will go directly into the Emergency Response Bank Account where all donations will be kept separately for exclusive use in rebuilding the Sunrise Horse Rescue Facility and the greater horse community in Napa and Sonoma counties.  Any donation would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

"We have a long road back to normality and truly appreciate the community stepping up and supporting us in this dark time," spoken by the very gracious Lindsay Merget.
