Can you help?

I noticed a horse that deserves to come into the Sanctuary. We'll be losing Rabbit very shortly so although her leaving doesn't necessarily open a spot, I would really like to let this horse in to retire. He fits all our criteria and has worked hard...at least for the past four years and I'm guessing more than that as he's 20 years old.

But the problem with him coming in is that we need sponsors. We need to have someone else financially looking out for him (besides me). Even if we could get a small monthly donation towards this horse's care would alleviate some stress on me (even $20 would make a difference). Would anyone be interested in helping an old warrior of a horse retire?

If you were to donate $20 a month for 12 months, that's $240. That's $240 to helping keep an old horse happy and comfortable with a belly full of hay and no threat of heading into the slaughter pipeline. $240 might seem like a lot up front but if you spread it out over 12 months, $20 isn't much. It's a fancy meal at a sit-down restaurant or it's four fancy coffees. Isn't a life more important than a cup of coffee (I'm not a coffee drinker so maybe I shouldn't ask that question). There needs to be less out-of-sight-out-of-mind with these old guys and gals. Can you help?

He's paid his dues. Now it's time for us to pay his. If you are interested in helping, please email us at borderlandshorsesanctuary@yahoo.com
