Pat Boyer is sponsoring one of the Delaware boards! YEA!!!
Pat has been supporting our billboard efforts right from the beginning...you may remember Pat is the fantastically kind lady who allowed us to store nearly 3000 bales of donated hay in her barn, came and got us when the tire literally rolled off the rescue truck while we were bringing the hay back to her place and basically rounded up help for us to get the to her place and on and on and on...her help and support has been unwavering.
She has been doing matches for fundraising for the different boards around the country and now she is offering to sponsor one of the Delaware boards! I just do not even know what to say to her - I have learned not to argue with her and just say thank you! LOL.
So, PLEASE consider making a donation by clicking HERE - no amount is too small or too large - we need to raise the remaining $275 to get this board up on Routes 4 and 273 in Delaware. Be sure to note "delaware #1" in the note area so it gets applied to this board.
We also are looking for a sponsor for the 2nd billboard in Delaware. Please click HERE if you are interested in sponsoring this board.
PLEASE SHARE OUR BLOG, TOO :o)

Dalley wanted to help horses for her birthday last month...her mom contacted us and told us what she wanted to do. We were just floored that someone so young (she's still in the single digits) wanted to do something so kind, generous and compassionate.
She asked her family and friends to donate to the Angel Acres gang. As a thank you to her, we sent her a birthday basket from the velvet-nosed gang...and she sent us an adorable, hand made thank you card!!
(I have to double and triple check my 20 something kids to make sure they have sent their ty cards for gifts they receive!)
She is an amazing little girl...and she drew the picture below, it is of Mattie...which actually choked me up a bit...as I realized that Mattie's Legacy really IS living on...even in the heart of a little girl in Texas who never got the chance to meet him....and the kindness this little girl has showed our gang has allowed us to help 2 more horses via Mattie's Legacy Fund...
Thank you Dalley and Tana (Dalleys' Mom) and all of her family and friends who made Dalleys birthday wish come true and help 2 families in dire need of assistance at the same time...sorry Mastercard but I gotta say it...PRICELESS!

In the mean time, another animal welfare group who wishes to simply have the board dedicated to horses that have gone to slaughter, has sponsored the entire cost for 2 billboards! One is going up in Raleigh, NC and Richmond, VA!
This is so incredibly generous of them and extremely important to our efforts. Richmond is a HUGE market and literally thousands upon thousands of people will see this board...
The sponsor has covered both costs as they were above our normal budget for the billboard campaign....
The board in Philly, PA, taken by Angel Acres Gang member, Robin is pictured above...ALL future billboards will be the newer black background as it REALLY helps to hit home the message! Florida and KY will be black backgrounds and we will post a picture as soon as they are up.
Help us get more boards up around the country!
Our billboard campaign is incredibly important - People cannot fix a problem they are now aware of...help us raise awareness, today!!

He is the Saddlebred gelding that was rescued from starvation in West Virginia in November of 2010. He was too weak to make the long trip into the rescue at that time.
He was able to live with foster mom Deanne and her family for the past 3 months to recover.
That allowed him time to begin the long road to recovery for this sweet boy. We will keep you posted on his progress with monthly updates.
His own webpage is being built this weekend and we will be sure to post the link to it here and in our weekly newsletter.
Read his original rescue story here.
SUPER BIG THANKS TO ANN M and JOE R - who were EXTREMELY instrumental in getting Crocket safe and getting him into Angel Acres!

This mare and gelding ONLY have till this SUNDAY - March 6 or they will be euthanized NOT sent to auction or slaughter, but humanely euthanized. We would look to see them get homes instead of that happening.
Both are very sweet, just not handled a bunch, both are 4 years old and both are sound and they have their papers.
Rachels Lady - mare, about 15.3h no vices
