20150429_174357Happy Trails Assists Two Counties in Two Weeks

On Sunday, June 7th, an emaciated horse and her companion were rescued and brought to Happy Trails. We named the sweet mare Bella Rosa, meaning Beautiful Rose in Italian. We could see past her thin, frail body that she was indeed a beautiful rose. She is a shining example of why we do what we do.  On the 16th we accepted in four adult female goats, and an adorable two month old calf named Charlie.  This rescue just took place Monday night, and the humane officer brought these precious animals to Happy Trails on Tuesday. Who can resist a baby anything? Well, these babies are sure to steal your heart. Cute pictures (including one of one of the baby goats who bounced himself up onto the window ledge of the vet clinic) and their story is attached to the article of the two horses mentioned above. You can check it out here…

Recently Happy Trails enjoyed “A Night of Hope and Inspiration”, held at Todaro’s Party Center, with nearly 500 of our closest friends and supporters.

This special event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the sanctuary, and we raised $45,500 at the event itself. These funds help pay for things such as veterinary expenses, medicines and medical supplies, hay, grain, bedding such as straw or sawdust, hoof trimming, teeth floating, vaccinations, fuel and transportation expenses, and the special needs of abused and neglected horses and other farm animals.
You may have wanted to join us for the fun and festivities but had another commitment on your personal calendar, or you just had too many things going on.

This video gives you a glimpse of the evening’s activities, including the moving, heart-warming announcement of the winner of the Janice Award and the George Award, two very prestigious awards designated for outstanding volunteers who make a difference in a big, big way.
Take a moment to check out this video, and then join our “After Party”. It’s not too late to help us reach a collective goal for our fundraiser event of $50,000 by making an “After Party” donation.  We hope to raise $4,500 to make the event complete.

Your donation will still help make this event an even bigger success with your “After Party” contribution. Anyone donating $75 or more to the “After Party” fund will receive a complimentary tour pass for the 2015 tour season at Happy Trails!  Donate Now!
