UPDATE ON SHAKIRA and the final March Bucket Fund Donation Receipt!

Last month, our Bucket Fund horses were Tia and Shakira, two mares who had been cooped up in a manure filled barn, never being let out, for years.

You can read the original story here.



Unfortunately, Tia did not survive (read her story here).  However, Shakira is doing well!  Here is an update:

Hi there,

Here are the most recent photos I have of Shakira – just playful photos taken with Jill Daigle, one of our staff who has been her primary caretaker. They adore each other- Shakira follows her around like a puppy.

Thank you again for all of your support, and even more for all of your advocacy for those horses who really need the most help. You are a shining star for horses – we need more people like you!

My best,


Heather Robertson, Director of Development & Marketing, MSPCA at Nevins Farm, 400 Broadway, Methuen, MA 01844, (978) 687-7453 x6118
