Mustangs & Misfits cover
Description I have spent my life surrounding myself with horses and dogs. I have had rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs and cats as well. I love animals and I want to save them all. About 18 months ago I ran across a story about the Yakima reservation horses that go to slaughter and the foals that are left at orphanages for adoptions. It was such a sad story I wanted to do something. SO I talked to my daughter Kassy and her friend Brad and decided that I would adopt three foals so we each could have a horse to save and teach. Kassy and Brad were both struggling with addiction and I thought the foals would help save them as well.
SO I put the plan in motion and went to Yakima and brought home three scared souls! Athena, Apollo and Saphira adjusted to the routine quickly but not to people very quickly. Athena was the youngest (we suspect) and the first to figure out the humans would scratch and brush her, which she loves.
This journey has taught me that I can make a difference in some lives. I can help those who can’t help themselves until they are strong enough, physically and emotionally, to move on to live with other families. I also know I cannot do this on my own. From these thoughts the Mustangs & Misfits plan went into motion. I want to save lives through rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming.
I am working on buying some property, bare land, to expand my rescue beyond the four horses and two dogs that I have already rescued! We will need to do lots of fundraising, grant writing and hard work to bring this venture to fruition. To get the LLC and the 501c setup and filed will cost $ 2,000.00, which is just a small piece of the start-up. Any help and donations for this grand project will be greatly appreciated.
Our mission is to help those who cannot help themselves, until they can find their forever home. By rescuing animals who are in need whether they are being seized by law enforcement or their owners are no longer in a position to care for them we will take them in and do wh
