Since August, your donations have assisted three more horses with shelter, food and medical care to escape neglect and get their second chance at a new life! Sebastian, Sam and Elliott (pictured above) all came from dire circumstances that, without your help, would have left them without options to escape their suffering. To date, $25,499 has been raised for this project and a total of 14 horses have been saved! We could not do it without you and the USERL Board of Directors thank you for your support.

This past year has been difficult with the recession, and the increase in horse neglect is projected to continue as people face home foreclosures and job losses. Your funds help these horses displaced by the poor economy, as well as those impulsively bought by uneducated owners due the current poor horse industry market without thinking of the costly monthly expenses to keep them healthy. Your funds also help horses like Sam and Elliott, whose owner intentionally inflicted cruelty by riding them in poor condition causing saddle sores on their skeletal frames.

Your funds help those that do not have a chance at finding a good home. With thousands of horses flooding the market that are healthy and trained, these horses have no chance at finding a home with the knowledge to care for them and bring them back to good health. Help us help them – the neglected, the abused and the abandoned. With our continued efforts together, we can give them that second chance!
