The Griffin's 1980's tractor

November 29, 2022 is #GivingTuesday and your support over the years has been so wonderful.

This year we really need help!

The Griffin's have let the rescue use their tractor for over a decade, it hauls 1400 pound bales of hay out the various pastures to feed the 40+ horses, donkeys and minis. It is used to plow the snow so volunteers can get to the rescue, drag the manure in the enclosures, create furrows to reroute rain runoff and SO MUCH more. We have used it so much it is worn out and the hydrolics are not working properly making it unsafe.

This year, thanks to an anonymous donor advised fund of the Jewish Community Foundation, we can match the first $5000 in donations. What does that mean? Your $20 now becomes $40, your $100 now becomes $200.

A newer used 4x4 tractor at auction

There are several machinery auctions in December where we could purchase a newer used tractor that will run for decades more. Our goal is to raise $15,000 this #GivingTuesday to use to purchase the much needed tractor.

We have tried to find grants to cover the purchase cost and there simply are none.

There are so many wonderful charities to consider this #GivingTuesday and we know times are tough for so many.

We appreciate your support so very much whether you can help with $5, $50 or $500. Every donation is so meaningul and will make a huge difference to us.

If you can help us this year just click the button below to make a tax-deductible donation via check, debit/credit card, PayPal or Venmo and have your donation doubled with the matching grant.

There is no time limit to give to this fundraiser so if you are seeing this after the 29th your donation will still count.

As winter approaches we are so hopeful we can meet our goal and purchase a tractor before the snow hits. We thank you. Rimson and Buddie thank you. Our volunteers thank you.

All of the horses, donkeys and minis appreciate and thank you so very much!!!!

2022 Rimson and Buddie thank you

Rimson & Buddie say THANK YOU!
