The event is Free to the public, but donations and Wish List items for the Horses and Cats are very much appreciated! Your support is needed for us to provide the quality of life our senior residents deserve. She noted that unique merchandise will be for sale that will directly benefit the sanctuary and its residents.
Myers commented, "Our mission is to advocate and care for special needs senior horses and cats that require permanent sanctuary setting and are not afforded adequate care if left in their current situation."
She explained, "The horses we take in are over the age of 25 and who have suffered in their former lives--after years of providing hard service to human beings, some were abandoned, some were starved, some were taken to kill auctions, some were abused. Since January 2019, we have rescued 4 neglected senior Draft horses destined for slaughter and are rehabbing them back to health.
The cats that we help are of geriatric age and are often from our local animal shelters. Thru no fault of their own they find themselves in unfortunate situations facing abandonment or euthanasia and often have medical issues that require intensive care and attention. Recently we rescued a senior shelter cat with serious medical issues, and he is one of our sweetest feline residents."
