Someone mentioned True Innocents Equine Rescue situation on the Fugly blog and, upon cursory examination, they seem to be a legit rescue who have unfortunately fallen on very hard times. For further details, check out this news story: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...ire&id=8775477
This has been a hard year on horse rescues nationwide. Feed/hay costs are out of control. Vet, insurance, and fuel are going higher than expected. But donations didn't recover to the pre-recession levels. Please support your local horse rescues!
It really sucks their property is being foreclosed on. Not to take away from their plight, but this is just a really tough thing for any horse rescue to afford. Rents are out of control in many parts of the country. It's so hard to find a new affordable place to relocate to, much less do it for a herd of horses. It's so nice they're getting news coverage and lots of internet exposure. I hope they find a new farm in time. It saddens me to think a % of horses in rescues came from individuals who lost their own homes/farms to foreclosure. This recession stinks and it needs to end.
