July 21, 2015: Belle was taken to OSU on the 10th of this month. Surgery for Belle would give her a new lease on life. Fundraising efforts are currently underway to make this happen! Belle needs an experienced handler and with surgery can be put into training to make a great riding companion. No jumping.
April 26, 2015: It’s been a long, hard year. What a way to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of the Columbiana County rescue than with plea bargain closing the case and finally freeing up these wonderful animals for adoption! Read the full story-update of the Columbiana County abuse case.
Belle is a wonder to behold. Her beautiful face and shiny coat show her inner beauty cannot be contained. Belle has a hernia that prevents her from being turned out with aggressive companions. This hernia may be repairable with an elective surgery at OSU. We can work with a potential home to make this happen. First we must find the right person to take Belle as their own. With this surgery, Belle at age 3 will live a long, happy life as a riding companion for some lucky person.
