The South Side Seven

$7,207 of $9,200 goal

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!

We have officially been moving the rescue to it's new home for 14 days now. It has been one of the most true tests of my personal endurance, for sure, not to mention trying the metal of our new employees, Danielle, Devin, and Gary. Devin and Gary are the new build it-fix it sort of guys and Danielle is our new assistant/tech intern. We could not have built all the beautiful infrastructure and pens and moved all our stuff while caring for baby Spring, all the other animals and those among us that need more care right now. Devin is seasonal and moves on today for awhile, but we are on our FINAL day of animal and stuff moving! This is it!!!! We made it! We are BROKE (there hasn't been a day that cost less than 300 bucks in fourteen days) the rescues funds are tapped from hay and shavings and fuel, and not a body amongst us isn't black and blue from head to toe, sore, injured or otherwise abused. But man, was it all worth it. Our new place is MORE AFFORDABLE once we are settled in, definitely in a better climate, and where we can protect each other and both rescues horses through thick and thin. Not to mention the space the horses have, soon, the freedom of being out of the heat for those of us with health concerns... Nature... I could go on. This is an exciting new future where we will be giving to our community and animals in whole new ways. Rescue, of course, will be our focus, but the next phase of animal welfare is interest and education. People have to care, but they also have to know better. City living has deprived us of animal and plant husbandry and horsemanship and all three are important to spiritual wellness. Let's do this! We need fence, shelters, outbuildings, tractor work and more! As usual, like with getting the property, we as a family can meet Wild Hearts' needs to some degree, but we need your help. We have already purchased two outbuildings! They need ramps and delivery and some stuff but we got em! We already have purchased over $3500 in infrastructure like shade and shelter, canine security for the animals, and more that was needed to settle everyone in here and have safe pens. We need your help with the rest! Here's our move GoFundMe, and as you can see, it is EMPTY. Our regular donors and sponsors have helped some but this has mostly been on us and that's okay! It's time to make this place the Oasis for equines it's supposed to be and get these fences built to they can use ALL of their 15 acres.

Franny and Legacy are doing great. Georgia is about to be a mom next. Please continue your support of the south side seven. These ladies are the last to make it through the effects of their abuse because of their pregnancy and it's time to give them 200% since we had to wait for birth to do so much. Thank you!

We have spent $7800 (rounding down) on vet bills in the last 20 days including Franny's foal needing plasma because she leaked all her colostrum. That's 2/3 of our budget. We all just coughed up all our personal money to get a better life for the animals at a larger facility and are spending more moving them and us. Hay is crazy expensive. The flies are out and all the fly sprayers need filled. Fly spray (let's face it, one kind works) we use is $65 bucks a gallon all the sudden.... I could go on. My point is, babies, their Mamas, and all that they need to be well are expensive, and we didn't criminally abuse and neglect, abandon in a roadway, or have seized by the county ANY of these horses. We were just the ones brave and kind and generous enough to help recover their future from those that did. That goes for our donors too. You guys work along side us, technically, saving lives and finding justice. Please donate. No CEO. No fancy commercials. Just blood sweat and tears rescue, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days year. All the money goes TO THE ANIMALS.
