First Light Farm Equine Shelter

CAN YOU HELP? This is Fanny. She is emaciated, injured, and possibly just lost a baby. She was tossed to auction for the sake of $150. She is in a holdover facility, but they are not equipped to provide the level of care she needs. Maple Hill has medical help and an experienced foster home waiting for her, but needs support for transport to Maine. Transport is arranged for Wednesday. Most of her expenses once she gets here are covered.
Even a small donation will help get Fanny on her road to recovery. Donations to Sanctuary at Maple Hill Farms are tax deductible.
PayPal is MHFSanctuary@yahoo.com. THANK YOU!
