The Klamath Large Animal Rescue gals did one awesome job last week and rescued 42 horses in dire need of help. These horses were left on a ditchbank with no food, and water that only the strongest could get to…the weather was about to become very wicked and there were so many in the herd that would never have made it, their injuries and starvation was very ugly so a great group of awesome people moved in and helped these animals get to safety.
They were taken to the Klamath Shelter for evaluation and the worst were brought to Project Spirit so we could separate, bandage and medicate, and feed carefully those with empty bellies and bad teeth. The storm hit with icy winds and deep snow and sub zero temps, but not one horse lies frozen on that ditchbank. They are all eating well and are warm and happy. We send HUGE thanks to Charlotte, Dawn and all of the outstanding people who jumped in to help…these horses are alive because of you. Klamath Falls can brag about our animal rescue, DAs office and deputies…
without you this would never have happened, you are our heroes all the way!!! And the outpouring of help from our friends and this community is overwhelming, the donations are so needed with this many horses, we could not do this without your support peoples…thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your back up. Also all of the good people who are helping feed, clean and care for these horses, this is what Thanksgiving is all about!!! Bless every one of you.
The grey mare with the infected eye had to have it removed after the eye burst, the infection took its toll without the treatment it needed. Her pain is easing daily.
The red mare on the bottom of the page has come on amazingly well, her ribs are no longer visible and she now has bright eyes and her head is up, not dragging the ground, a dramatic and wonderful recovery, still a long way to go, but she is on the road.
