Save the Horses will launch its first Online Auction called “You Bid, Rescued Horses Win!” on February 3, 2017 at 8AM and ends on February 10th at 10PM. The auction is a fundraiser designed to raise money for feed and medical care of the 130 rescued horses and other animals that they care for.
“Our goal is to rehabilitate and rehome horses that are rescued from abuse, starvation and neglect situations. However, the majority of animals that we recover cannot be adopted. Some of them are seniors, others have medical conditions and others have behavioral issues which sometimes does not make them ideal adoption candidates. As a result, they live out their lives on our farm or at foster locations. Taking care of these animals is very expensive. We are a no kill shelter that does not receive any federal or state funds to operate so we have to turn to the kindness of the public for donations to meet our $10,000 per month operating expenses.” Says Cheryl Flanagan the Rescue’s Director.
Save the Horses, a non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue farm (Horse Rescue Relief & Retirement Fund) has collected new and nearly new items donated from generous supporters which they will auction and use the funds to buy feed, hay, supplements, farrier, dentist care and medical supplies for the animals. “We have a great collection of items. There is something for everyone. The auction catalog includes clothes, books, artwork, home décor, equestrian tack and accessories and even some sports memorabilia and a couple of trips to exotic destinations. We are especially excited about a Super Bowl bound, Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons) hand-signed photograph that is a part of our collection.” Says Cella Nelson, the Auction Chair.
