*** UPDATE: MOnday 2/20 Thanks to all of the people who donated this weekend you are amazing! We are still working hard to get the funds raised to bring her home this week. Anything you send helps save her life!
I hope this post finds everyone well. I want to thank you for taking the time to read what I am about to share.
The Equine Sanctuary is a non-profit organization located in the tranquil valley of Ojai, California. Documented by National Geographic for their extraordinary efforts on behalf of the equine world, they specialize in the care of injured or mistreated race and polo horses which would go to slaughter for human consumption without the support of organizations like The Equine Sanctuary.)
The Founder/Executive Director, Alexis Ells, opened The Equine Sanctuary in 2001 and has dedicated her life to caring for and rehabilitating these amazing animals who then have the opportunity to become therapy partners for humans in need.
I am fortunate to know Alexis through good friends and I have offered my time to help with a critical fundraising campaign to save a horse which needs our help now.
Tiny Dancer, a beautiful grey thoroughbred mare had fallen on hard times and is in great pain after years of use and abuse. The Equine Sanctuary has stepped in, and has begun to rehabilitate this lovely but malnourished spirit. Great time, energy and money has already gone into her rescue, and she is finally strong enough for transport to her “safe home forever” at The Equine Sanctuary.
At The Equine Sanctuary, she will become a Goodwill Ambassador to the children, veterans and disabled we serve — giving healing even as she heals. But Tiny Dancer needs your help to get across the finish line — they need to cover transport, medications, special feed, supplements and veterinary care as she continues her journey back to health.
Can you help us bring her home?
