Second chances can’t happen without donations. We receive no tax-payer support. 100% of your donation pays for feed and care of each horse.
UPDATE NOV 11, 2022
Both Gracie and Justice have overcome such hardships and have gained hundreds of pounds, regained healthy coats and feet. We are happy to report they are in great shape and soon available for adoption!
August 18, 2022, we accepted two starvation cases seized by County Animal Control. we named the bay mare Gracie and the chestnut gelding Justice. Weak, malnourished and suffering from rain rot, we had them vet checked and put them on a carefully planned refeeding program. We follow the University of Kentucky’s program which has been successful.
Refeeding a starved horse is an expensive endeavor. High quality alfalfa is part of the program and one of the most expensive cost components. Each horse consumes over $18 per day in feed and hay - three times what a healthy horse consumes.
Justice and Gracie are gaining strength and weight. We are hopeful for a full recovery but we need your help to continue the refeeding program.
