Help! Standing in Snow and Running out of Time

We need your help! We need to perform 12 Christmas miracles by Christmas Day. Immediate funds are needed to seize these horses. Neigh Savers has been contacted by the Ventura County Humane Society. A former racehorse breeder has been under investigation for the last 2.5 years. His horses have been neglected, their weight is dropping, and feet are in terrible condition. Some horse’s body score are quickly approaching 1 and 2. Tofurther make matters worse, there are 5 horses who, according to humane officers, need to have immediate veterinary attention and with our recent storms, these horse are standing in snow. Food is limited and they are not receiving the care that they need. Time is running out. These are his final 12 horses and they are wasting away. These pictures were taken at the beginning of December. Their body condition is rapidly deteriorating and their feet are painful from neglect. Without farrier care, theses horses will be crippled.

Because Neigh Savers does not yet have its own facility, it is very hard for us to take 1 Stallion, 3 Broodmares, and 8 two to three year olds. The Humane Society has offered to house these horses during their initial rehabilitation period, BUT they don’t have funds to care for them or the resources to adopt them. Neigh Savers is doing our best to make this holiday miracle happen. We need to raise IMMEDIATE FUNDING to seize these horses and provide the care that is much needed.

$3,000 will get us through the first month of hay, grain, farrier, and vet care. We need to raise more than this. No one wants to leave these horses. We want to hold the person accountable who has done this. We cannot responsibly take these horses on without your support. Can we save these horse by Christmas?
