Pony Tales Refuge & Rehab: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The grant funds were used to purchase hay for the horses in our shelter.
This grant helped us purchase more hay, since we had to use more funds for staffing to do virtual showings of the horses during the Covid shutdown. In May we held a low-cost surrender event to help owners who could no longer afford to care for their horses.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Rosie was the second-to-last horse surrendered during the May event. She arrived in rough shape: Blind in one eye, covered in lice, and full of worms, Rosie needed extra care and special attention. She was very nervous around people, and it would often take more than one person to catch her to care for her. In time, though, she began to trust us and she never looked back. Rosie has since been adopted and is living her best life.
