It is that time again, to find another charity for our proceed donation! For the month of February, we have decided to donate to Beauty's Haven Farm & Equine Rescue located in Morriston, Florida. I found this rescue by scrolling through my personal Facebook feed and stumbling upon an article about a horse that had multiple gunshot wounds in the Ocala area. "Emma," the 3 year old Quarter Horse filly, was taken in by Beauty's Haven Farm for rehabilitation and care after her multiple surgeries to remove the bullets.
It has been a few weeks since the incident and I have been checking Beauty's (for short) blog to get updates on Emma's condition, which seems to be improving besides the extensive nerve damage she sustained from the bullets. Emma even has her own Facebook page that gives updates on her recovery process (link below). The person that committed the crime has not been found after researching further but a reward is still posted for any information that someone can give as to the whereabout's of the criminal. For more information about the incident, I invite you to check out their website http://bhfer.org/hsus-adds-5k-to-emmas-reward-who-shot-emma/ to learn more and to learn more about the rescue itself.
Charities such as Beauty's Haven are what drive me to continue this journey. There are so many grass roots rescues that are doing everything they can for Horses that have been neglected or abused and they need our help to keep operating. I think we can get caught up in our bubbles and forget that there are so many Horses out there that are in need and we just don't know how to start helping. Any donation whether it is big or small helps! As always, thank you to our customers for your continued support on our quest to expose and benefit charities such as Beauty's Haven Farm & Equine Rescue!
