Past Fundraising Drives:
2007 New Holland Five: Raised about $1000 towards the purchase, vetting, rehab, retraining, & final rehoming of three horses in the brokers/killpens. FIVE HORSES SAVED --- THANK YOU FoBs!!! Link: thread link on TWR Horses are now here & safe, but a few may need vet care, so we're leaving this open as a current fundraiser for anyone who'd like to chip in towards their vet bills.
Betty the belgian was about to be sold by the amish farmer to the meatmean. FoB paid for her bail! We got her vetted and all care done, and now she is living in a safe forever home on a farmette in south Jersey. link to TWR thread
Red & Romeo had their bail sponsored by FoBs, buying them direct out of the killbuyer's lot in NY. We happened to have space at the time, so we took them in. They had strangles so we couldn't do much with them until they were well & quarantine ended. Red is adopted and living happily in NJ. Romeo has behavioral problems, despite professional trainers; May has taken him in for as long as it takes to rehabilitate him
December 2009: donations from ABR members towards Gertie the New Holland saved Belgian mare.
The Equihab Foundation is a Maryland non-profit 501c3 organization dedicated to ending cruelty to equines. We focus on getting horses out of neglect, abuse, abandonment, or slaughter situations. We give full vet care, and no horse leaves without full vet exam, shots, dental, and farrier work done. Then we place the horses into screened adoptive homes & monitor the horse on an ongoing basis. We feature kinder training methods, not believing in anything that might injure a horse.
Equihab is an all-breed rescue, serving the needs of all ages and types of horses. Due to our geographic location ( mapquest map ), we see an especially large number of ex-racing horses and former Amish horses in need of homes. However, we do help all breeds.
We service the Mid-atlantic region of the USA, preferably placing the horses within 2-3 hours of Cecil County, Maryland, when possible. Delivery may be available.
Additionally we sponsor clinics and educational presentations throughout the year ( Equihab's calendar ). We feel an educated horse owner is the best kind; much of neglect is just plain ignorance.
We also network our community together. We help horse folks find the vet, farrier, trainer, etc they may need. No longer do people need to delay getting their horse trimmed because the old farrier vanished and they can't find a new one. By helping people get the resources they need, it's helping the horses get more prompt & better quality care.
Donations greatly appreciated.
Volunteers always welcome. (Must be over 18 or accompanied by parent)
THANK YOU for your support!
