Fall is in the air!

Greetings from Samson at Straight from the Rescues’ Mouths! Fall has finally arrived, and I must say, I'm quite relieved after those scorching 90+ degree days. Luckily, we have plenty of trees providing cooling shade, along with a gentle breeze to make our days more pleasant. We've been treated to some delicious goodies like apples, watermelon, and carrots. I'm curious, do your four-legged companions receive extra treats during specific seasons?

During one of the cooler August days, our trusty farrier paid us a visit for our monthly hoof checkup, and it was my turn for a pedicure. Now my hooves (or feet, as some call them) look as cute and dainty as ever!

Did you know that I have many friends eagerly waiting for their forever homes? Some of them have been waiting for quite a while. If you're interested, you can visit our website to see who's available for adoption, and it's worth noting that not all of them are horses.

Recently, we welcomed a new rescue dog into our fold. We suspect someone heartlessly abandoned him at our rescue. It's disheartening that his previous owners couldn't ensure his safety and simply left him at the end of our driveway. He arrived in poor health, burdened with fleas and worms, requiring immediate medical attention. As many of you are aware, our Buy a Bale Fundraiser is in full swing, and I'm excited to provide an update on our hay situation. My human companions have been working tirelessly to gather enough hay to sustain all of us rescues throughout the winter. We've crossed the halfway mark towards our goal, but we still need your support through donations. Please consider contributing a single bale to our Buy a Bale Fundraiser.

Fluke is ready for adoption!

With that, I'm signing off, feeling grateful to be at IHRWC. Be sure to check in next month to catch up on the latest from Straight from the Rescues’ Mouths. And please, don't forget to consider donating today; even the smallest contribution makes a significant difference!
