Veteran Makes all the Difference Volunteering

Curtis, in his late 70's, a Vietnam Veteran, and an active horseman (or in his words, "a try to be horseman").Because of the pandemic, we also had to cut back on our staff, on our horse in take, and overall, our annual budget to stay afloat as we didn't know how it was going to effect the rescue as a whole.
