As you may know, Angel Acres is closed to visitors until May 3rd, however we are working to help secure the safety of one mare, arranging for a showing for Tequilla next week, preparing for two horses getting ready to go to their new homes on Thursday, helping out with other rescue stuff, etc...our vacations are always working ones...with our charges being living, breathing beings, there really is no break from the work that needs to be done.
Our adult children and volunteers take care of the rescue gang while we are away...I take care of the emergency cases and stuff from the road...but tonight...the only emergency issue we received was this one -
MATTIE'S LEGACY FUND HAS MET & ACTUALLY EXCEEDED ITS GOAL!!! WWWOOO HOOOO!!!
Big thanks (I haven't even emailed her yet, I am just too excited and had to blog about it asap lol) to Linda for pushing us over the top of our goal!!
Mattie's Legacy Fund will need to keep being funded in order to keep helping horse owners and horses in need of assistance, so we will keep trying to raise funds, work with vets to reduce their fees, arrange for free/reduced hauls for horses being moved to safety, etc...but this is a HUGE milestone for the entire Angel Acres crew.
We SO appreciate all of the wonderful help we have received to make this goal happen. And whether we are on the road, at home or in the barn, the Angel Acres Crew will always do our very best to help horses and their owners in need.
THANKS LINDA and All who donated over the past 9 months to this fund! You can still donate if you would like to help with the fund :o)
