To all of you dear people out there who keep us going on a daily basis - as you know for the past year SAHA has been committed to downsizing and to containing our costs, and we have done a great job, BUT we all desperately want to rescue again regularly. It’s where our hearts are - it’s why we all got involved in rescuing horses, both personally and through SAHA.
I know that for all of us there have been heart-breaking moments during this last year where we haven’t been able to open our doors to a horse in need, and I know that we have spent nights awake and many tears wishing that things could be different. Well, the dawn is almost here – but we need your help to usher it in! We know of several horses that we would like to bring in BUT we don’t want to commit unless we know we have some funds to cover not just the rescues but also some of our ongoing costs – which are creeping up! We’ve had some mechanical issues with ALL our buggies and quads; fencing costs on both properties, and of course, it goes without saying the ongoing feed costs and vet costs which OH MY GOODNESS, can our beloved horses find any more ways to spend your donations??? On the plus side, more horses are up for adoption, and we have some lovely meet-and-greets in the works.
We will fill you in once they happen, and we know that it means we could have room for a few new rescues, and we also KNOW you would love us to take them as much as we would love to look after them, rehabilitate them and re-home them. Michelle, myself, Rachel and other staff and Committee members bring decades of experience of horse ownership and rescue to our commitment to SAHA. And to rescue is what we live for. Can you help us help unwanted horses and ponies find a new and better life? As soon as we can raise the funds we have the list, and we will be out there. We promise!
So please can we ask you to dig deep once more, to find it in your hearts to help us so we can rescue again.
