Dear Global Giving donors,

Your donations through this project have recently assisted two of four horses that just entered our program from an active cruelty case in North Carolina.  One of those two being assisted by Global Giving donors is a heavily pregnant mare, so in a few short weeks it will be 3 from this case assisted by this project!  All four from this case are in very poor condition and at high risk of a difficult recovery from their severe neglect.  That makes 30 horses assisted by Global Giving donors!!

This group of four horses is expected to be very costly to rehabilitate due to their severe neglect and poor condition.  Additional horses from the same cruelty case may need to enter our program as well as the county investigation continues.  Please help us give them the second chance they deserve in life!   Be a part of their recovery and new lease on life – donate today!

So how did we help 30 horses with only ¾ of the project funds projected?  USERL works on a foundation base of “community” giving to assist horses in need.  That means that all resources possible are utilized to maximize every dollar donor’s donate.  Many of the 30 horses that have come in since the Global Giving project began were also assisted by public donations  (both monetary and in-kind donations) solicited via our website/facebook, discounts from community vets and feed/hay dealers, and some funds from private foundations.  It’s always difficult to gauge how much these resources will fund a particular horse, but we’ve had a great success in the past two years bringing all of these resources together to assist a horse, and make everyone a part of it!

Currently, there is still an incredible need for more horses from county investigations of equine neglect.  To fill this need, we need your help!  Help USERL to bring more horses into the program needing immediate assistance/shelter/medical care.  These cases happen without notice or ability to plan or fund raise ahead of time.  All 30 horses Global Giving donors helped fund in this project were in immediate need with none or little notice before them coming in.  Without Global Giving donors, we could not have helped these horses alone!  Help USERL assist more horses in need, at a time of great need for our services.  Let’s increase this project goal for 45 horses assisted into our program!  We know with our ability to utilize resources and the generosity of Global Giving donors, we can do it!
