The South Side Seven

$7,307 of $9,200 goal

Raised by 116 people in 13 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!

Georgia, Franny and Legacy are still here. Please help.

I cannot stress this enough, ready to go horses need to be adopted and funds need to be donated for hay. Five hundred and fifty in feed. GONE in ten days. FIVE BALES A DAY. We all have jobs, but we also have to eat and have the lights on and have some needs ourselves, so spending EVERY penny on hay is a fast way to sink a ship. PLEASE DONATE to our shelter. This is just like a pound full of dogs and cats. They are just horses people disadvantaged or couldn't train to rehome. We are doing that. Kenai, pinto, Sala, river, magnolia, georgia... All ready to go with running adoption ads. With enough donations to finish dentals we would have two more ready to go. There has to be a place for these horses! And that place has to have FOOOOOD. We are a state Incorporated non profit, and we have GRAZE we cannot use because we do not yet have enough funds to begin fencing. PLEASE, if any of the hundreds of people WE have helped can help us now, it's a great time to pay it forward! If I had a dollar right now for every bale we helped someone else with, every haul, trim, vet bill, any of the literal thousands of things we helped others with, it wouldn't be so scary. The last GoFundMe is for fence so we can use our graze.

Legacy is healthy, Georgia is without a foal, unfortunately, but healthy, the bad guys were punished, the bills are paid, and legacy and her mom and aunt can all be filed under "to be adopted" in the not too distant future. To contribute to their final minimal care needs or make a farewell donation to this monumental case that is FINALLY "closed", this fundraiser will remain up for the next five days.

I don't even know where to begin. Our new ranch is BEAUTIFUL and humble. We have so much work to do to best use it as we envision for the horses. In the meantime, the world needs us to do our job and do it NOW. We post-poned the intake from Tuesday to Sunday because Fundraising response was dismal. He's elderly and starving while being fed apparently. He needs dental and hoof care and soon. We don't have enough pens to do intake but NO WHERE reputable wants to take in these horses apparently, even so much that a surrendering party shared a horror story from one of the Pima county area "rescues" she attended to determine if they were fit to take horses. Another shared their vet's reactions to a potential place to surrender equines. Our new vet has already agreed to come the 15th and help with teeth and horrid feet whether the money is sorted or not, but we still owe the bill of course. I'll get an estimate sorted, but it will be easily a grand. Their are 6 total equines to sort into our facility. We need panels, perimeter fencing supplies, hay, etc. The move WIPED us out. The low bills and new opportunities will even us back out, but there ain't no rest for the Wild. We are being called to duty every second, and so we are calling all Wild Hearts to duty with us. Come on gang, it's the hardest time of the year and I know it. But these horses are literally being made homeless in both situations and we must respond. Let's stuff the ole PayPal (currently has 46.00) and get the fuel, hay, panels, fence.... Let's get this party rolling. Grant money isn't coming as fast as the demand for our service. Three detectives from Cochise county came unannounced to examine our operations and ask what we offer. We were told they need our help frequently and will be in touch. That's nice, but we are working towards being prepared to respond at that level. I see we have a big roll to fill, and that this isn't the retirement home we figured it would be. Nearly every contact from anyone for a week now has been a call to service. Let's rise to the occasion Wild Hearts! I'm ready to save some lives with you!

It's a ways til my next paycheck and the move has tapped us out. THIS is they hay we have left without an overpriced trip plus interest with the credit card to someone besides one of our brokers. That stuff gets heavy quick. Please donate! Thank you.
