 Why RVHR has to say NO.

Once again it is the time of the year to evaluate how the year has gone so far and especially what the last few months have looked like for RVHR.

With the recent devastating storms hitting our coasts and everyone making donations to help out those in need, donations to RVHR have been little to non existent.  We are so proud to see so many stepping up to help our fellow Americans in need after these disasters.  Right now many small Non-Profits like RVHR are suffering funding shortfalls.

So far this year RVHR has placed only 6 horses.  Unfortunately do to the low amount of incoming donations and low number of placements, we have no choice now to but to say NO to any new horses at this time.  No we can not help owners who are looking to place their horses in need of a home.  No we can not take on any starvation, neglect or abuse cases from animal control unless donations and placements pick up.
It breaks our hearts not to be able to help but we just don’t have the funding to care for any new horses, plus keep up with the 53 horses in our care at the moment and the on going normal bills that keep the rescue running.  We have to put the needs of the horses already here first until we can find them new homes.  We have made them a promise that they will never suffer again and we plan to keep that promise to each of them.

With our small staff and a small group of volunteers we are working hard on re-evaluating each horse that is known to have been rideable with the hopes that with updated pictures and fresh evaluations they will be more desirable to those looking for a good horse.

If you or someone you know is looking for a new family member please tell them to check out the herd here at RVHR.  Your recommendation of a RVHR horse can help save a life.

If you want and can help with funding one time or more especially with a reoccurring monthly monetary donation (these really help in the long term) you can do that through our online Donation Sites withPayPal.  If you would like to make a donation of feed or supplies we have set up donation accounts at some of our local feed store.

Thank you everyone for your love and support.
