Dianne – Volunteer Spotlight

Reading Time: 2 minutes I had met Dianne a few years back, when we had rescued a mule. I had invited her to come check out the rescue.

Veteran Makes all the Difference Volunteering

Reading Time: 2 minutes 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. Rain, snow, wind, it didn’t matter, Curtis came out every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to muck pens and stall, feed the senior horses and give meds to those that needed it, help winterize the equipment, groom the horses, whatever needed to be done that day, he did it!
