Help Needed can Zootooers Come to the Rescue?

The NHSPCA have a desperate need for assistance. They are becoming overwhelmed by the number of horses at the shelter. The site is www.nhspca.org

We had a terrible ice storm here in New Hampshire in December, and some of these horses were rescued because they had no shelter.

So all you Zooters, if you know anyone that might be looking to Adopt or even Foster one of these beautiful horses, could you please use the power of Zootoo to help.

If it's not possible to Adopt or Foster, could you assit with a connection for desperately needed supplies?

I know that these are challenging times economically for everyone and our shelters and rescue leagues are no exception.

So lets show the NHSPCA what Zootooers can do when we get together!

Thank you for any consideration you can give.

I read your request and being a horse lover myself forwarded to a friend of mine that resuces horses and has done the mustang training contests they have every year. If she is not able to help, she at least has a large network of people that could potentally help. I live in a rual area and my father in law operates a large crop farm. When we were out on the fourwheeler one afternoon in September we came across 3 horses in the middle of his corn field by a pond. It was apparent that they had been there for awhile. We began asking around the community who might have missing horses. After about a month our assumption was that someone had released them because they weren't able to take care of them. Better than keeping them restrained and not. My father in law called animal control and was told that there was nothing they could do. He called the sherrif. The sherrif told him that if he tried to capture the horses that they would be considered his and should they get out and get on the road and cause an accident that he would be held responsible, because once he captured them, they were considered his. Just in December, one of the area farmers managed to capture the horses and they are now living on his farm. How sad that these stories are a dime a dozen. I do hope that you will get some assistance.
