September 02, 2015 – We’re incredibly grateful to be the recipients of a grant from the ASPCA to be used towards the veterinarian care and training of the remaining Arabian horses. These funds couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you! www.aspca.org
It’s been eight months since we took over the care of 23 Arabian horses, and today, we’re still seeking homes for eight of them. Immediately following their seizure last November, they were housed at the historic Upwey Barn at the Green Mountain Horse Association in South Woodstock, VT until late April. We then brought the remaining horses to West Windsor to stay with us at Lucy Mackenzie. This is the first time in our history that all the stalls in our barn have been called in to action, and the first time we’ve ever had horses available for adoption. Two of the mares are currently living up the road with a very kind neighbor and will come back as soon as we have the stall space available.
While we’re honored and thrilled to have these horses here with us, they deserve to have loving and safe homes, just like all our animals. We need your help:
ADOPT OR FOSTER
We have eight remaining horses, all of which are incredibly lovely and deserving. We have a couple of pairs that we’d like to see adopted together; we have a couple of retirees that will bring you lots of joy; and we have a couple that with the proper training, are going to be absolutely amazing horses. We have something for everybody! You can view all of their profiles on our website and on PetFinder.com. You can download our horse adoption and foster form here: HorseAdoptionFosterApplication. Have questions? Let us know at 802-484-5829 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
From day one, we’ve counted on our volunteers to care for these horses and to clean stalls, groom, feed, walk, love….you name it, they’ve done it! And, it’s because of them that these horses are now healthy. Today, we still count on our volunteers to cover two shifts:
AM Shift: 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Includes feeding, filling water buckets, mucking stalls, turning out, walking, and more.
PM Shift: 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM. Includes feeding, filling water buckets, grooming, walking, mucking, and more.
If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Jackie at email@example.com or 802-484-5829
