USERL is so thankful for our supporters in our mission to assist neglected, abused and abandoned horses, donkeys and mules!  Since our last report, funds through this project have come in to continue to assist Stori, an orphan foal who tragically lost her mother to severe neglect, as well as a mare named Nizzy who came to USERL needing assistance from financial issues.  So many families are struggling in this down economy, and horses are the first of pets to suffer as a result due to high expenses related to horse ownership. 

USERL volunteers assisted Nizzy's owner in finding suitable homes for 4 of her 5 horses.  Nizzy, however, was very thin, older and no home was able to be found by the deadline for the owners eviction from her home.  USERL took Nizzy into the Horse Program and started her on a quality feed program for weight gain and dental float to correct issues relating to her weight loss.  She has been gaining weight steadily and will be evaluated soon to ready for adoption into a new home - a second chance.  

With your help, USERL can help many more like Stori, Nizzy and others in our project reports.  So many have already been given that second chance through this project.  Can you help us help more?  No donation amount or effort is too small!  Every donation goes toward the direct care of the horses in the program for feed, hay, bedding, veterinary and farrier care.  Share our reports with others to expand awareness of this need, so large now due to economical pressures on horse owners today.  Help USERL give them a second chance at life!
