The South Side Seven

$6,592 of $7,200 goal

Raised by 107 people in 4 months
July 20, 2018: Wild Hearts Rescue Ranch Inc was called to the scene to evacuate 7 equines from a property under investigation for cruelty and neglect. Regular residents of Wild Hearts were taken to our sister facility to make way for the new intakes, and the entire day was spent loading, evacuating, and caring for the six horses and one donkey from the scene. One horse is a stud and at least two mares were exposed. Two very likely and apparent pregnancies. All horses are below a body score of 2, which is emaciation. These animals had filthy water, no feed, and no hope. Their teeth, feet, bodies and minds need so much help. Initial vet bills/expenses look to be around $1000 per horse, roughly, considering needed blood work, treatment, vaccinations and more. Feed, manpower and professional care will be expensive, and we haven't had a single donation on their case since it began. Very scary. Several of our local news stations will be covering this story. We worked with KOLD yesterday. Please consider a donation, or volunteer some time to help feed and care for the horses at Wild Hearts. We are honored to rise to the occasion for these animals and for our wonderful Sheriff's Department and their effort to erase a horrible blight on our county. We have long struggled to see the kind of quick response to these situations that we are getting without question now. No longer will horses suffer to death in Pima County. No longer will their abusers escape justice. Will you help us? We did all the hard work, we faced all the danger, and the sweat... So much sweat. We will heal these precious hearts but we need your help!

A lot of very kind things were said about our work today. Many help here and contribute to this even being possible. I'm privileged to be able to live a life of service along side such amazing folks. I found that the need exceeds what I can earn very early in the game and I decided to file to accept donations, and to offer superior coverage via the web and even the news of our intention and use of donations. You send the money, I show you the vet care, you sacrifice your hard earned dollars, I show you the hay truck, the lives saved, the farrier, the adoptions, the community assistance... Many times when I'm doing the stuff I don't advertise, it's either because I wish to protect the pride and anonymity of people who needed help, it's inappropriate time to disclose information on a case, or, it maybe because an animal needs help peacefully passing, and no one else needs to experience the pain we endure so regularly. I ask for help with horses we can make whole again, or at least are reasonable for trying. We do choose humane death over a life of pain, and sometimes we cannot correct things we have desperately tried to fix. Those are obvious exceptions, when I cannot shield you all from the devistating losses of those we fought long to save. We have many in our care including pregnant mares, elders, and more. We have vet bills from recent assistance cases, some debt building, and a hard winter, at this pace. We prepared with several tons of hay, and have hay for a few months yet. EVERYTHING else is stacking up. Operations cost easily $2000 over donations on average this time of year,and we catch up later, with some luck. This year is WORSE, with a possibility of eliminating all the positive progress we have made by spring. Please consider even a small donation to help ease this impact. We are only doing social case intake at this time. Basically LE calls and one intake from a facility that is adopting a horse as well..they are a therapy/riding program we have long looked forward to working with and can meet each other's needs in a unique situation. Below are some links to cases that need the most help, our PayPal, and our address. Thank you to my sneaky hacker for the love, and to all those with WILD HEARTS that support this endeavor.

The Southside 7 have made amazing progress with your love! Harry and Charley were gelded, including Charley's complicated chryptorchid situation, and all have been adopted but the two pregnant mares. Having no breed date for the girls has been a challenge. They have had some prelabor discomfort days, and even a couple of sharp drops in pH, and both are lactating. The vet has been involved, and that is why we need your help. Every penny of the money raised has been spent on extensive vet, farrier, and nutrition care, and quite a bit of out of pocket as well as operation funds have gone into their care as well. We REALLY need to drive the end of their fundraiser home to provide for any birth related emergencies as well as continuing Veterinary monitoring because of the early term neglect and high genetic risks of both pregnancies. Please invest in the futures of these two unborn foals with us. They never had a chance, until Pima County Sheriff's Department found their case and called us. We have come so far. Let's finish with perfection and give these girls the advanced care and back up funds for emergency they deserve. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR WILD HEARTS!

Scary. Donations ARE NOT coming in. Winter is always rough but we have vet bills mounting by the day and expenses depleting our winter budget at an alarming rate. Mares in foal, studs going and coming home from being gelded, etc. I don't even know what to say anymore. It's like everyone is bored of the South Side Seven and forgets the commitment to their total recovery, criminal prosecution of their abuser, sterilization of the males, successful foaling of the ladies, training, behavioral assessment, and finally, CAREFUL adoption process... Intake is in our future, and we will have some desperate, heart wrenching stuff to show you, but right now, what we have is the desperation and heart rending stuff we already fixed to live up to, and as far along as we have made it, the total healing and needs of these guys are not yet met. Minus any veterinary expenses due to the births, there is probably 1500-2000 bucks to go. I prefer to ask for your donations in plain, unmanipulative, honest words, and just lay it on the table for you to make good decisions for your charitable funds with. I know their needs may seem insignificant now, since their teeth and feet and bodies are almost fully healthy, but please consider the commitment to excellence that sets this program aside from others, and makes us your rescue of choice, and help us drive this case across the finish line this month.
