A while back I wrote about FLEET OF ANGELS (sorry if this is a repeat for you…).
However, I’ve received several emails from readers asking that I write about Fleet of Angels.
So, I figured that my original post needed a brushing off and a redux!
FLEET OF ANGELS
In short, Fleet of Angels is a volunteer network of individuals who can provide emergency transportation, stalls, housing, paddocks… whatever a horse in need might benefit. Basically, if you think you could help out when called, sign up! Realistically, they probably wouldn’t call very often.
But imagine how good you would feel if you could help?
I signed up.
The application is easy and thorough. It asks what you can and cannot do. No strings, just be honest.
I said that I could trailer horses but I did indicate that I didn’t have stallion abilities. I said that I could house a horse temporarily and that I would provide feed.
They do ask if you can trailer for free or if you’d need gas money… and I think that’s fair. I said, ‘it depends’. Because to me, it does. I could easily travel 100 miles. But 500… well, I’d need a shower or something. So, I said, “it depends”… It depends on my cash flow at that moment, to be honest.

THEY NEED VOLUNTEERS IN THE MIDWEST AND CANADA!
Hey Canada and the MidWest, they need you!
Here is the map… as you can see, there are some empty spots…
I LOVE THE LOGO! IT SHOULD BE ON EVERY VOLUNTEER TRAILER!
I love this logo and think it should be all over! Kinda like NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH – almost literally Neigh borhood watch, eh? Anyway, the logo should be just as prevalent and recognizable!
I think every volunteer trailer should have a bumper sticker and every truck window a logo!
