Buy a Bale... of Hay for the Rescue horses!

by Iron Gait Percherons - Draft Horse Rescue

Summary

With total of 44 horses currently in our rescues care, we are desperate to find and purchase hay as it is scarce in our area. The need for Hay and Support is ongoing. The funds we obtain will directly determine our ability to care for and help needing horses in the upcoming year. With your help, IGP will not only be able to continue helping needing horses but also keep our barn open and available to state and local enforcement agencies take in horses that have been surrendered or seized.

Challenge

Due to last years weather, our local farmers were not able to collect the hay they normally do out of their fields. Thus, leaving a shortage in our area. Hay is scarce and costs are rising due to this problem. Since IGP has gained many more Sanctuary horses than usual, we have had to expand our facilities and build more shelters to accommodate all the horses as well as buy more hay, feed and medical supplements. The need for support is ongoing all year long.

Solution

The funds we obtain will directly determine our ability to care for and help needing horses in the community. With your help, IGP will be able to keep our barn open and available to state and local enforcement agencies to take in horses that have been picked-up or seized due to neglect or abuse. We rely completely on donations from our supporters and 100% of donated funds going directly to the care of our current sanctuary horses as well as any horse in our program.

Long-Term Impact

In order to have enough funds until spring we need to raise $20,000. for the 44 current horses in our program. We rely completely on donations from our supporters to help provide costs of care of our current sanctuary horses as well as any horse in our program. It costs us approximately $200 per month per horse for daily care; in addition to regular facility upkeep and more expensive emergency veterinary/medical rescue situations.
