Gerda's Equine Rescue: Disaster Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Money from this grant was used to purchase hay for our rescue horses.

This grant was a lifesaver! It allowed us to purchase much-needed hay for our horses and gave us the time we needed to fundraise for the remaining money that was used to pay for repairs caused by unexpected flash floods. Thank you!

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Cosmo (first and second photos) came to Gerda’s Equine Rescue in 2019 from a feedlot. He had a huge abscess in his front foot. It took more than a year for the abscess to grow out with consistent trimming and therapy boots, but his hoof has finally grown out and he is ready for adoption! Money from this grant helped pay for hay for Cosmo while he waited for his forever home, and it paid off: Cosmo has a pending adopter who is coming to see him this weekend!
