As you may have read in the Spokesman Review or seen on the nightly news KREM, there is a rescue effort currently under way for 33 horses up near Springdale, WA.
Pam Swiderski of Fantasy Farm Thorouhbreds, a wonderful woman with a big heart for horses, is heading it up. Please visit her site and email her a big thanks--her email link is toward the bottom. Or, click here Pam Swiderski.
After speaking with Pam today, we've found that the needs are these:
People to love on the horses! (She welcomes everyone to come help after they're all set up--which should be this Wednesday).
Tony Hamilton, a local farrier, has volunteered to trim all the horse's hooves!!! Thank you, Tony!!!! If you know him, give him a BIG hug for us all here at MDH.
Moms Daughters and Horses would like to put a care package together and raise money for some hay, so if you can donate any small amount, please do. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with anything you'd like to give--10,20,30 dollars--whatever you can spare. If every one pitches in a little--it adds up to a lot, and maybe it will help ease the burden until homes can be found. Whatever your donation is, we'll get it directly to Pam to help meet the above needs, and since we're a 501c3--your donations are tax-deductible.
A BIG thank you to Shepherd's Way Horse Rescue--another 501C-3 organization to help horses--and Pam Swiderski for all that they're doing--which is a lot.
Here are their contact numbers if you'd like to get ahold of them directly.
