He was spotted today during one of the hottest days of the year – in the Nevada (desert) Virginia Range. He appeared to be about 2 months old. A foal. Unable to stand and follow his herd. His mother was upset and hovering.
Tragically, even with her encouragement, he couldn’t rise -so his band had to leave him – in the sun.
Luckily workers in the area saw him and knew to call Wild Horse advocates. The workers sat with him to comfort this very ill baby… they did their best, begged for aid and even paid for his Emergency Aid. The foal was picked up, literally, in ER veterinarian’s arms and given immediate oxygen/fluids – then transported to a nearby equine hospital.
At the hospital, it was discovered that this little foal is suffering heat stroke and severe pneumonia. It is touch and go but little Milan (the name of the street where he was found) is responding to treatment. The doctors are holding vigil to save him.
One of the workers who first noticed this little guy and desperately called for help because they couldn’t watch this foal suffer and die in the heat – has offered to pay the price for his pick up and ER care. But Milan needs heavy antibiotics and 24/7 care until he comes out of this.
HERE IS WHERE WE COME IN…
I received a desperate call from one of the Team members helping little Milan. They want to save him but don’t have the funds to continue his care. Could we help him?
Can we help this little guy on his road to recovery? This is happening RIGHT NOW! I’d like to be able to reassure the team helping him that Milan can receive his life saving care.
All donations are 100% tax deductible! Please, it would be great to help this boy – especially after a selfless worker did everything she could to get him help.
Let’s do it for the lady who saved him and for his mother, who couldn’t!
