SO close to our goal....can you help????


November 29, 2022 was #GivingTuesday and your support over the years has been phenominal.

We reached our matching donation of $5000, making your donation worth double. In fact, we got $6000 in donations so with the matching $5000 from an anonymous donor advised fund from the Jewish Community Foundation of San Diego, we raised $11,000. FABULOUS! OUTSTANDING! AWESOME!

BUT..... we still have not reached our goal of $15,000 for the newer used tractor that the rescue REALLY NEEDS.

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.

A newer used 4x4 tractor at auction

There are several machinery auctions December 13-15th, next week, where we could purchase a newer used tractor that will run for decades more. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to use to purchase the much needed tractor.

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

Forest says - thanks for giving

Multimedia Systems and Technology Consulting Inc of Snowflake, whose owner's grandaughter, Alexandria, has both adopted a horse from us and volunteers at the rescue every weekend, has offered to match the next $1000 in donations. That would give us a total of $13,000, leaving only $2000 still to be raised to reach out $15,000 tractor fundraising goal.

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

If you can help us 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 donation.

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!
