Upcoming Euthanasia Clinic -Tuesday Aug 31st

We have come across some very sad situations where horses who were long overdue for a peaceful end are being left to languish. Today a 30 year old mare was left behind at a property. The water had been turned off on Monday and the feed she was receiving was sparse. People concerned about the horse left her some hay but contacted us about the empty water buckets They asked us to please do something so they didn't have to watch the horse die. The person living at the property stated he did not want the horse and signed her over. It was just in time as today was another scorching hot day .
Holly the sweet and now spoiled mare from the flea market gave the last ride her body could handle and should never have been asked to make.
Rather than take a chance on her tired body giving out on a trailer ride we were able to find a way to bring the euth clinic to her. So the clinic will be in North Highlands this time

A very special thank you to Melody and Jed Durnay . They have volunteered for us at past clinics,offered Holly a soft stall to rest in , took in the Thirsty 30 mare from today and offered the use of their property for the clinic . They are the kindest hearted cowboy and cowgirl you would ever want to meet.

We have been contacted by a few other rescues with horses that need relief from constant pain.
There is room for a few more horses if the horse truly needs the service and the owner does not have the financial capability to pay the normal costs .
The horses will be treated with kindness and the owners are allowed to stay to say goodbye if they wish.

The low cost clinic is Tuesday and you can contact us at for application forms and information.
We would appreciate anybody who wishes to help sponsor a horse, fully or in part, any amount will help us be able to continue these clinics. Any sponsor donations are tax deductible. Another clinic is planned for September as well.
