|From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and every one of you who has already donated to our Rescue Fund!
So far, we’ve received an outpouring of support bringing us $6,127 closer to our $15,000 goal! As we get closer to reaching our goal, we’d like to introduce you to another foal who calls Nevada’s Virginia Range home to emphasize just how important this work is.
Braveheart’s young life began in tragedy. At just 11 days old, Braveheart was orphaned after his mother was hit by a vehicle and died from her injuries.
Local Nevada organization, Wild Horse Connection (WHC) was alerted to the accident and contacted the Least Resistance Training Concepts (LRTC) Technical Large Animal Rescue Team who dispatched to the area. There, they found little Braveheart standing over his mother’s body, heartbroken and afraid.
The rescue team assessed his condition and thankfully, Braveheart was just fine. They then transported him to LBL Equine Rescue where he has been thriving with other orphaned foals ever since!
Here at AWHC, we are proud of the work our team and our partner organizations like WHC, LRTC and LBL Equine Rescue are doing to help vulnerable foals like Braveheart. But David Morgan, the cost to support the rescue and rehabilitation of these sweet little animals isn’t cheap.
AWHC’s Foal Rescue Fund purchased much needed medication for Braveheart and Ranger, the foal you heard about yesterday, and will be purchasing more bags of milk replacer as well (an ongoing need for growing babies!). The fund also purchased supplies to restock our emergency foal kits to ready the rescue team for responding to rescue calls like these.
We need to make sure we can continue to provide these critical rescue items that help save foals like Braveheart. That’s why we are trying to raise $15,000 by midnight tomorrow to ready ourselves for any rescues that come our way. Can you make a contribution right now to help us reach our goal?
Thank you for your support,
