Our generous sponsors for our 2016 Have a Heart for Horses Benefit:
On October 19, 2015 we received a call that the Orange County Sheriff's Department and Animal Control were on a farm which was the scene of terrible abuse and neglect. There were 101 live horses, donkeys and mules on the property plus a number of dead animals.
We arrived at the farm at about 8:00 p.m. that night and picked up six horses and one miniature donkey in critical condition.
The following morning we returned to the farm and thanks to our amazing volunteers and foster homes were were able to pick up an additional 22 horses and ponies.
Sadly 5 of the horses did not make it.
These horses, ponies and donkey were all in varying states of starvation and neglect. Some were not much more than skin and bones, others were physically decent shape but are very fearful.
Rehabilitating these horses will be a long process, some are ready for adoption now, others it will be many more months.
Please consider a donation to help support not only the Peaceable Farm horses from Orange County but also the other residents of Hope's Legacy.
The generosity of the community with financial donation, donations of hay, feed, supplies and also all of the people who have volunteered their time has been really amazing and inspiring. We would not have been able to assist so many horses without this support!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the horses at our Have a Heart for Horses Benefit on Feb. 14th. The turnout was amazing, everyone had a great time and we raised $10,000!
