“IN HONOR OF CHAMP” BUCKET FUND OPPORTUNITY: Meet the “8”.






‘IN HONOR OF CHAMP’ BUCKET FUND OPPORTUNITY!!

As you all know, our Bucket Fund Horse for April did not make it… His name was Champ and you can read his story here.

But now we have a ‘right the wrong’ opportunity with the IN HONOR OF CHAMP Bucket Fund….

This week, South Florida SPCA (Champ’s Rescuer) saved 8 more starving horses.

–3 very skinny Stallions (yikes),

–a tiny mother mare with her stunted 7 month old colt AND a motherless skinny yearling filly that the mare has adopted

–a 2-3 year old boney filly and a her Pinto rack of bones dam

They think the Mother with  her colt and the abandoned filly are all Tennessee Walking Horses.   No names yet – these three just came in.

The three stallions are still being evaluated.  They will be gelded when they are fit enough for the surgery.  These neglect cases also have no names.

The Pinto mare is very sweet so they call her Candy.  Her filly is also a sweetie so they call her Cinnamon.

Skinny, molting Stallion #1 who was seized today and brought to SF SPCA with his two buddies.

Skinny, unnamed Stallion #2 who was seized today and brought to SF SPCA.

Stallion #3 who was seized today.

This is the young mare with the colt who adopted the abandoned filly.

The Walkers - the middle filly was abandoned and adopted by the young skinny mare.

This is the young mare, Cinnamon.

This is Cinnamon's dam, Candy. She is a love bucket...

 

IN HONOR OF CHAMP, who didn’t make it,  let’s help SF SPCA with “THE EIGHT”!  They all need special care for the next few weeks plus their special re-feeding diets.

Any pocket change, couch change or Starbucks money would be hugely appreciated!  Every drop goes into the Bucket and it all adds up!

*Any donation of $100 will allow the donator to throw a name into the hat of their chosen unnamed horse!  The 3 Walkers and 3 Stallions have yet to be named!

THANK YOU in advance… helping those that have a good chance at a full life – feels really good.  Thank you.

PLEASE PASS THIS FORWARD!

*THE MONEY ($2675) THAT HAS BEEN COLLECTED PREVIOUSLY IN APRIL FOR CHAMP’S FUND WENT TO CHAMPS EMERGENCY CARE, RE-FEEDING AND BURIAL.  IT ALSO COVERED ALL OF CONNIE’S PRENATAL FEEDING/CARE AS WELL AS LITTLE CHAMP’S FIRST VET BILLS.  THE REMAINDER WAS USEDFOR THE INITIAL RESCUE AND INTAKE OF THE 3 STALLIONS LISTED ABOVE.

In Honor of very brave Champ. He tried. But now he is the Heavenly Ambassador for his barnmates...

    Nancy: Yes, $2675 will go to pay Champ’s feeding and emergency medical expenses and burial. The rest of the balance went towards Little Champ’s/Connie’s birth vet bills AND They also used some of the money to pull the newly rescued stallions and give them their initial care.

    Did the other Champ money already go to the SF SPCA? I noticed we’re starting over and April isn’t over yet…
