If you haven't met Ember yet, you're missing out! This little girl is unbelievably sweet, silly, and full of cuddles. Ember is an 18 year old mare who has been a lifelong pasture pet and was surrendered to us because her owner couldn't keep her contained. We are having her vaccinated, dewormed, hooves trimmed, and will be conducting an evaluation after her physical and medical treatments have been completed. Once Ember is healthy and available for adoption, she won't last long! Come meet her while you have the chance!
Feeding Volunteers Needed!
As many of you know, we have a dedicated crew of incredible volunteers who feed our beloved rescues every day of the week, two times per day, rain or shine. As many of you also know, life happens. And sometimes our volunteers can't make it to feed one day, which means we have to scramble to make sure these responsibilities get filled.
This is why we're developing a Feed Team. The Feed Team will consist of pairs or groups of volunteers responsible for daily feeding operations so that the sole responsibility doesn't fall on one person. The best part of being on the Feed Team? You get extra opportunities to see and love on your favorite rescues! Also, once you start feeding, your equine friends will never look at you the same. Interested in being part of the Feed Team? Contact Tracey!
Crew of the Month: NNPTC Staff and Students. This amazing crew of volunteers helped us FINALLY clear away the last of the damage from Hurricane Matthew. Thank you NNPTC! If your group would like to volunteer at HOPE, click here!
2016 was an incredibly successful year. We saw 15 horses adopted out to forever families, and are extremely grateful for all the helping hands that made this dream come true for 15 lucky horses.
Now it is time to focus on those horses that still need our help. How can we increase our impact? How can we help even MORE horses in 2017? Please share your ideas, stories, and outreach strategies with us as we work to make 2017 our most successful year yet!
Shadow Receives a Spectacular Sponsor
We want to extend an extra special thank you to Amber, a young volunteer who decided to sponsor Shadow for the month of January. Her gift reminds us that no matter our age, we are never too young or too old to practice compassion and kindness. Thank you Amber!
Last but not least, we are happy to welcome Cobre to the HOPE family! Cobre (which means "Copper" in Spanish) is a 22 year old Missouri Fox Trotter who came to us last weekend as an owner surrender. His owner told us she's taken him on trail rides and camping trips across the US. We hope he enjoys the views and the company at HOPE!
