From: Anna Romito (Anna Romito, an Akron police officer, has helped out on the Happy Trails emergency rescue crew as a hauler for rescued horses. She has horses of her own, and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Anna was involved in the mass horse rescue when three organizations came together to save a total of 26 horses from going to slaughter at the Sugarcreek meat auction.)
I would say that one thing Happy Trails has meant for me has been a way to bring various rescue groups together to work on a project like draft horse rescues. Here's a picture from when Happy Trails, Paws with Pride, Friends of Pets and Frog Pond Draft Horse Rescue raised money for buying the horses at Sugar Creek's auction.
