Donation for CONVID-19 impact
Volunteer hours are down, donations are down, adoptions are down, educational programs are closed= please help support the horses here!
How, as a rescue, how do you plan in times of uncertainty, when you have animals to care for but really unknown resources moving forward? The first step is making sure people remember you, hear the horses stories, let people know what you need, and ask for help!
Just about everything that keeps a horse rescue moving forward has been lessened, closed, or postponed. But the horses still need DAILY care and feed. Hay, grain, vet and farrier appts, those are still happening. We go thru $4,000 a month in hay alone. If you are not from Naples, we have a sand base, no grass grows here naturally. We feed hay year round.
We take in mostly young, medically needy horses, and in addition to feed and rehab costs, we still need yearly check ups (Coggins) vaccines, and hoof care, so the expenses and the work goes on, but with depleted resources.
Please visit our donation page, and help if you can. We are still recruiting volunteers, so you can attend our orientation, its the first Sat of each month, this month we start it via ZOOM. Spend some time on our website, look at our programs, view our horses looking for homes, Check out our FB page and follow us there or on our Instagram account, share this story w your friends! We have moved our orientation online, adoption fair on hold as there is a Stay at Home order for non essential services. Caring for the horses IS essential, but an adoption fair is not. These are very trying times, and as we move forward, please remember the horses here and everywhere that still need your help. Just sharing our story helps! Our donation page has links to our suppliers, you can call them and donate hay and grain, dewormers, hoof treatments and farrier work, vet appointments. Smaller items like Fly traps, fly spray, are needed too! www.tracktotrailthoroughbreds.org/donate
The horses miss the kids!
And yes, horses needing a home are on the increase!
