Many of you know I am a BIG believer of being up front and honest...so...here we go. I have bolded their comment, my response follows.
Its a great campaign, check it out! www.stopslaughteringus.com
"Oh please that woman charges a lot of money for horse rescue horses". Well now...WHEN IS A DOLLAR BILL a lot of money?! This person knows absolutely NOTHING about our program, nothing. (ALL horses are Dollar Program horses).
So, for your reading pleasure --->> http://goo.gl/M7598x
HOWEVER, if we did charge a fee for them, it would be a reasonable fee since all of our horses are up to date on shots, feet, teeth, worming, etc are sound and trained to walk, trot, canter, jump and are incredibly well balanced and ridden on trails. WHO SAYS A RESCUE CANNOT CHARGE A FEE to try to recoup some of the costs incurred? (not including cost to pull from auction, transport, qt, etc)
Schrecky? REALLY? Her name is Sally Shcrock, never met the woman in person, but she has always been incredibly kind to me via fb and has helped with spreading the word about horses in need, etc.
Angel Acres postage is $51,938? Yes, it was. We mailed OVER 300,000 Bumper stickers (actually I think its more and will change this number as soon as I confirm it) that are identical to the billboard (and companion website) to help raise awareness about American horses being shipped to Mexico and Canada to be slaughtered, sent out flyers with information that we returned to appropriate folks to show support for anti horse slaughter here in the United States, and we sent out slaughter booklets that folks are sending back to us to deliver to Secretary Vilsack. (we've done more but you get the idea).
"No updates on Lexington?" Apparently the stalking skills were lacking, we JUST update him 2 days ago (he's been here 3 weeks).
Or maybe we should take in 40 horses with no way to feed them or scream how about "THE TRUCK IS COMING!!! YOU GIVE US MONEY TO BAIL THEM!!"...we won't do it.
We run the rescue as a business because it is a business...ONLY difference is it is volunteer based and we rescue horses in trouble not sell a product.
Only a coward hides behind a computer screen and berates someone they have never met about a program they haven't even researched.
My only comment on this post was my name and phone number and an invitation to chat...I'm waiting.
