UPDATE: We have a potential temporary foster home for these two girls, but we need help getting them up to Trabuco Canyon. Is there anyone out there who can help trailer them from Temecula to Trabuco Canyon? Please contact Elizabeth: [email protected] or call: (949) 842-7408. Thank you!
We were contacted by a woman named Dawn who is trying to help save two chestnut mares. Apparently the owner of these two horses called up someone he knew, said, “I’m not going to feed my horses anymore. Come over and shoot them.” The person he called came and picked them up, and refuses to feed them, either- he was going to shoot them as requested. Dawn knows the person who picked them up, and offered to pay for the food for the horses for a few weeks, hoping she would be able to find a place for them. The horses are several hundred pounds underweight and their feet have not been done in a long time- it is possible that the original owner had animal control called on him, and instead of taking care of his animals, decided it would be easier just to shoot them, instead.
Unfortunately we have no place to put these two mares, and we are just at the end of our budget with the two newest rescues we’ve taken in, Cindy Lou and Noelle. Is there anyone out there who might be able to take them in, even for a short time? They will be killed if we do not find some sort of solution, so we are reaching out to our Hanaeleh network to see if someone out there is able to help. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about these horses’ temperaments, training, etc.- just that they are mares, in their mid-20s, and need help. Dawn has offered to find a way to trailer these two girls to a safe haven if someone is able to step up and take them.
If you are able to help, please e-mail Elizabeth directly: [email protected] or call: (949) 842-7408. Thank you!
