How Deceptive Can An Online Ad Be? Apparently, VERY!
Newest Rescue is 6 Year Old OTTB Magic!
This gelding was brought to our attention by some internet savvy folks who sent me the CraigsList ad for him (since removed). But, you can see the original ad with same picture & info they used for the CL ad - HERE - you will be shocked at the difference. The ad shows a gorgeous, healthy, sound horse...this is what our hauler found when he picked up him last week....
To say we were shocked is an understatemnt. Magic's page on our site is HERE.
He is emaciated, covered in rainrot, & was left outside for MONTHS in the weather as the people charged with his care watched him starve (family "friends" that were supposed to be taking care of him because his owner packed up & moved out of state). Yet, through all of that he is still super sweet and very kind. You can see him getting his first bath by clicking HERE - it's a short clip :o)
He is in need of sponsorship during his recovery, we estimate 9 months to a 1 year before he is fully recovered. Interested in sponsoring him or someone else? Click HERE!
This is Enrica, we are helping her family stay together via Mattie's Legacy Fund. Her Mom, Laura, lost her job & is in staying a shelter. Laura's friend is keeping Enrica & her two mini horse friends until Laura is back on her feet. She is just one of the many horse families we help stay together & keep safe around the nation via Mattie's Legacy Fund.
Your donation of as little as $10 can help us purchase much needed hay; larger donations help us purchase feed, vet care, foot care, etc & allow us to pull horses from the kill pens & rescue, retrain & rehome them.
Mattie's Legacy Fund is dependent upon donations to allow us to help horse families in the USA - the need for help is great & we receive requests for help almost every single day. .
Some folks asked about PayPal - we do have a paypal addy - firstname.lastname@example.org is our paypal address.
I hope that your New Year is off to a fantastic start and thank you for being apart of the Angel Acres Gang,,
