Veterinary Care Fundraising Campaign
Posted: April 10, 2015
We are still in GREAT need of your help to raise money for our spring vaccines, vet checks, coggins and dewormer supplies for our rescue horses. Because of this year’s harsh winter, we saw a significant decrease in the number of patrons able to participate in our Ride-A-Rescue trail riding program, our primary source of income! We also saw an almost 50% increase of incoming rescue horses needing our help over the winter! This combination of events has stretched our Rescue’s funds.
We have set a goal of raising $5,000, via gofundme, to cover the costs of spring vaccines, vet checks, coggins, and dewormer supplies for our rescue horses. We have currently met 22% of that goal and are hoping to meet 100% of our $5,000 need by the end of April. Please visit our gofundme page and consider donating to help alleviate these costs. Thank you for all of your support!
