Update on "Expansion of Horse Program for 30 Horses"

Since January of 2008, when this project began, the issues of horse neglect have continued to rise alarmingly with the decline of the economy. Although Spring of 2008 brought much needed rain to parched areas of drought, the spiraling economy continued to increase horse neglect - along with price increases for feed, hay and fuel. Therefore, this project continues to be a very important aspect of our program. With a decline in the economy, donations obviously decrease as well. However, the needs of neglected horses are rising. In 2008, after the wonderful efforts and fundraising endeavors of USERL volunteers, USERL accepted 242 horses into the Horse Program. To date, more than 65 horses have come into the program in 2009. This project, currently at $9916, has assisted 5 horses in the past year to recover from neglect and find a new home. See the updated photos for horses assisted by this project. Help USERL help the horses - Donate today! Your donation makes a difference!

    janeosun It's so sad to see them this way, and wonderful to see the changes in them in the "after" pictures. Keep up the incredible work!
