22 Mares and Foals Saved
The AHDF was recently involved in the rescue of several horses from a feedlot. These mares gave birth on the feedlot, otherwise they would have been shipped to slaughter in Mexico.
The AHDF has 22 mares and foals at their foster home in Texas. Because the mares and foals were exposed to a number of illnesses they are not yet available for adoption. There are a number of expenses related to the care of these wonderful animals and sponsors are needed to cover these expenses. One foal will need hernia surgery when he is older, a few mares are underweight and all need baasic vet care, shots and worming.
Donations for the care of these horses can be made through AHDF. Please make sure your donation is clearly marked for the feedlot horses.
