How can you help in October?

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.  As many of you know, I finished my battle with breast cancer exactly 5 years ago this October.  It was this battle and my inability to care for my Kirby during that time, that has led us to where we are today.  This year, to celebrate not just 5 years of Pony Tales, but 5 years of being cancer-free, we are hoping to help more horses than ever before in a single month.  In the final days of September, we have already found homes for 6 horses.  In the final days of September, we have taken in 5 more.  This Saturday, we are hoping to save 10 more from the slaughter auction.  That will be 21 horses either finding safety or homes in just 2 weeks.  Imagine how many we can help over the next 30 days…

But, we need your help.  It costs approximately $1000 per horse to save them from the slaughter trucks.  We can only save as many as we have funds for.  So far, we barely have enough for one. 🙁  If that is all we have funds for, that is all we will be able to help.  The rest of them are counting on you to save them.  So, I ask you, in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in celebration of my birthday, in celebration of 5 years of Pony Tales, and in celebration of 5 years cancer-free, please help them.  Give Now!
