Not only was this poor girl desperately thin, but she also tested positive for Lyme disease. She is now receiving care from a vet including an IV treatment, but she has a long way to go to make a full recovery. This is where help from the public plays a big part in the HSDC's large animal fund. It's not just about dogs and cats.

In October they will be hosting their annual Ride for the Rescue fundraising event at the Bird Sanctuary in Solon Springs, WI. If you own a horse this should be right up your alley, and close to your heart.

The origin of this event started from a rescue in 2015. Police stopped a driver with a truck and a small trailer, it contained a deceased horse and five others that were extremely dehydrated, as well as three dogs and two cats that were in the same condition.

There is an entry fee for this event of $35, but if you raise $100 or more it will be waived. Lunch will be served, you must be 18, and you must bring your own horse. You can download a pledge form and get pre-registered at their web site.
