Osborne Stables launches area ‘Hay Relief for Horses’
Osborne Stables Equine Rescue Inc. is pleased to announce it has received a $5,000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). The nonprofit rescue, locally based in Sutherland Springs, will use these funds to support the “Hay Relief for Horses” project and is seeking additional help.
The “Hay Relief for Horses” project will assist the resident horse owners in need in offsetting the high prices of hay while providing the rescue group the opportunity to assist horses in need of hay assistance in our community with emergency short-term, low-cost hay and feeding consultations. This will allow horse owners to obtain assistance and help them survive the down side of the market and rising hay costs.
The goal is to keep horses with their owners rather than being sold at auction or abandoned.
Additional funding is needed for this project. Osborne Stables is reaching out to the public and for local hay growers to donate funds or hay to this project or provide discounts on the acquisition of hay.
Osborne Stables Equine Rescue, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation that provides a permanent refuge for horses that have been abused, injured, abandoned, or have ongoing health issues. The horses that are rehabilitated are used in education programs for all ages.
