Update April 12, 2012
The Refuge is still in dire need of the funds. Here is an excerpt from a message of April 7, 2012, from Rose, owner of RR
“To be honest with you not much money is coming in for the water…It’s is a very touchy situation where most people in cities and suburbs don’t understand how there can be no water…Well water sometimes is not a permanent source of water and unlucky for us….we have to dig another well.”
Bloggers Note: Water is having to be hauled in for the horses by Rose herself, often from neighboring areas. This has been an ongoing problem for some time and she needs to have a new well drilled on her property.
There is a fundraiser planned for April 28th, 2012 in Pointe Claire.
Refuge RR for Horses is a federally registered, charitable organization which rescues, rehabilitates and provides permanent homes for abused, neglected and/or abandoned horses. We also provide peaceful retirement for horses who are no longer serviceable.
