I have attached some pictures of Tawny. The initial ones are when Anne Hall rescued her and gave her a chance for life. The latest one is her today.
I received this email yesterday, and we have been working on a plan that would allow us to at least help 2 or 3 of the babies and save them from being slaughtered and turned into "filet of foal".
By moving out Tawny and Mica, our current orphans, we will be able to help save at least 2 or 3 of the babies that have about 2 weeks from Thursday before they are sent to the auction and end up on someone's dinner plate.
We have found a wonderful foster home for Tawny, but we need to raise enough funds to provide her with her munchies and hay, as well as pay for her hernia surgery. So we are asking for your help. If y'all can donate anything, whether it be one bale of hay (about $18.00) or even $5 for part of a bale, that would be awesome. In doing so, you will be keeping the 2 or 3 babies off of the grill (if they even survive the trip to the slaughter plant) and allowing us to have room to keep doing what we do.
The following is from the email we received via Suzanne Roy, and everyone is trying to do whatever they can to save these horses. Unfortunately, most all of the rescues are full to over flowing and it is totally irresponsible for folks to take on more than they can care for. If we do not make room by moving these babies, we will not be able to save the new babies. We have to be responsible and make sure we can take care of the horses in our care.
I hope this email finds you well. I'm reaching out today to our coalition partners to seek help in finding a place for some very special wild horses who face sale at a slaughter auction in under a month if placement is not found. These horses include Bond, a stallion (now gelding), and his family, and over a dozen other horses who are now sitting at the Carson City prison after being captured from the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) from their homes in the Virginia Range in northern Nevada. A total of 28 horses were captured. Six have been placed, leaving a total of 22 horses in need of homes.
These are beautiful and historic mustangs -- from the population that first inspired Wild Horse Annie's quest to save America's wild horses. AWHPC/Return to Freedom has a cooperative agreement with the NDA that allows us to purchase horses directly from the state and place them in rescues so that advocates are not forced to outbid kill buyers at the slaughter auction. Over the past two years, 170 wild horses captured by the NDA have been rescued, including 23 under the direct care of AWHPC. Local rescues are full and cannot absorb the additional horses at the prison, which means that they will be sent to the livestock auction if placement is not located."
Time is running out for these horses. Anything will help and if we all work together, we can make a difference.
Take care and God bless. (The pictures of Tawny are so y'all can see how much better she is doing and how much she deserves to have everything she needs to grow up and thrive.)
