Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King Jr.

Happy Trails has indeed taken that first step.  We are hoping that you will now walk together with us up that staircase, networking, reaching out to others and asking for their support to help Happy Trails acquire this property which will open doors, provide more educational programs, and allow us to serve you and the rescued animals better than ever….  Read the full details in our Land Acquisition Campaign.

summit cty rescue (6)Happy Trails Assists in Yet Another Neglect Case in Summit County

Update:  This case has been closed! The defendant pled guilty to one count of animal cruelty. Terms are as follows:  He is not permitted to possess animals of any kind for 5 years and is subject to random inspections to ensure compliance.  He must pay a $100 fine and court costs.  He faces 90 days in jail and the reinstatement of the remaining $400 in fines if he fails to comply with the terms of probation.  While this is good news, Happy Trails is once again left to cover the cost of rehabilitation for these horses.  Your support ensures these three horses will recover and find a forever home.

While shoppers bustled in the streets the day after Thanksgiving, Happy Trails was hard at work assisting Summit County in the starvation case of three Thoroughbred horses.  We will need your help!  Please consider a donation toward the care and rehabilitation of these horses in our care and help us figure out a name for these deserving gals.  Read the story here. . .
