UPDATE ON THE 4 GELDINGS AND THE BABIES - 3 ARE STILL NOT SAFE. WILL THIS BE THE 1ST TIME WE CAN'T SAVE THEM?
UPDATE - We have 2 orphan foals safe at Mel's, and have enough money to save ONE of the 4.
I am hoping the Pandemic is not the reason and that this will NOT be the first time we couldn't save the kids we are fundraising for.
It takes roughly $3,000 to save the 3 remaining geldings. (Apparently they are closer to 4 years old.)
This includes Bail, Vetting, Transportation, and that just gets them to safety. They still need care and feed until they are adopted, and I have to pay board on them once they are rescued until they are picked up.
I am praying this will not be a situation where I need to choose who lives or who dies. I cannot "pick" one or two to save and leave the others to die. This has never happened before. I know things are tight and the world is upside down. I just wanted to let everyone know where we are.
I was told if we are lucky we may have until Tuesday. It can change in a moment. If they are not saved they can be loaded at any time. We were asked to help save them, so that is what we are trying to do.
Thank you everyone who donated to save the others.
So much for a break.... (I apologize if you get this twice - having computer issues)
UPDATE - So far we have 2 babies and have been able to raise enough money to save 1 out of the 4 geldings. We got a reprieve, and still have a couple days to raise funds for the last 3. I know I certainly don't want to have to pick which ones we save and who dies.
TRAPPER AND SHIPPER CALLED TODAY! These 4 youngsters' need saved now! "TIME HAS RUN OUT". Once again I need to act on faith. We simply cannot let them ship to slaughter. They are babies, approximately 2 years old?
(Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but that was all I had.) I was notified that they will be shipping asap.
On top of that there are orphan foals coming in tonight.
Again, we are on the front line and have to save them now. Thank you for helping us continue saving lives.
These horses and the babies need help now!
