Help The Rescued Horses--Please

Hi ladies.

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:

Possibly Vaccinations
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 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.

Shepherds Way Rescue. Call Carrie Aenk for more information: (509) 892-6707 or (509) 844-3499. Pam Swiderski of Fantasy Farms--509.276.7200.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Carrie Aenk and I am the Director for The Shepherds Way Animal Rescue. We want to thank all of you for your support in this endevour to save those horses, the dogs, cats, and llama at Wellpenit. We met some awesome people that came out of the woodwork to help with the rescue, donate, and/or adopt.

The Shepherds Way was involved to help encourage the man to sign the horses over to us to save the animals and to assist in the rescue effort. We are handling NO money for this particular rescue. The horses are in the care, custody and control of Fantasy Farms/Pam Swiderski. The phone number given on this blog is to Julie Boehrig, yet indicated as my phone number.

Julie has graciously set up a fund at Bank of America in Deer Park called the: Horse Rescue Alliance. Please do not send donations to The Shepherds Way Animal Rescue for the Wellpenit rescue. If any person is willing to donate any amount of funds for the Wellpenit rescue, please do so at Bank of America or call Julie at the telephone number given on this blog that indicates it to be my number. Julie has been an asset to the cause and the bank account set up for the reservation rescue is legit, classified as a benevolent fund so you can acquire a tax write-off, if you desire one.

The telephone number given (509) 892-6709 or (509) 844-3499 is not the number for The Shepherds Way Animal Rescue.

You all have been great and your support has been overwhelming. Thank you all.

Carrie Aenk
