** $10,000 DONATION AND PLEDGE CHALLENGE **
An anonymous donor came to us on September 24 with a proposal. They have $10,000 to donate to the rescue. The catch... they are challenging others to match their pledge by the end of 2009.* This doesn't necessarily have to be one person, or one company, who donates $10,000. The idea is to raise another $10,000 to match their pledge.
Donations and pledges can be made via PayPal at http://hitveras.blogspot.com/; or by mailing, or dropping off, a check to the rescue. This can be a one time donation, or a monthly pledge amount. If you would like to be a part of this challenge, please notate "10K" in the memo/purpose field of your check or PayPal when making your donation. Thank you in advance for your support.
*All monies must be received by January 1, 2010.
We have over 30 rescues right now. Below are three who came in within the last few weeks. They are all three underweight, one especially. These sweet mares are all in their mid 20s, and their owner failed to see that they were losing weight, and in poor health. Thankfully she did decide to surrender them to the rescue.
