Mini Moments

Sharing Our Hearts

happy endings

Delilah had been missing her foster foal, Malakai, so now she’s doting on young Sampson, HOME’s permanent resident.

Nothing can tell a story quicker than a few ‘then and now’ photos. Although we don’t like to dwell on their past, we will periodically share some to emphasize the importance of what we do when we rescue these at-risk and neglected animals. What pictures can’t tell you is the miserable health issues that they can arrive with. You can spot the transformations though, when you look into their eyes.

Our newest residents

In the first week of April, HOME brought in their second group of kill pen rescues. There were originally thirteen, coming from Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Since this would have been too many for us to take in at the same time, Barb Gordon worked quickly to find another rescue willing to take a few.

On the morning of April 9th, we received five mini horses, two mini donkeys, and a standard-size mule and donkey. We agreed to take the standards as we were told they had been together with the mini donkeys and it’s important to us not to break bonded pairs. So every once in a while we’ll be having a full size animal joining us.

Currently they are all in our quarantine lots and being assessed and treated as needed. A few are still very hard to get near and there will be geldings needed for all of the donkeys, so it will still be some time before they’ll be available for adoption.

Sometimes adventures can divert us away from our daily routines.

HOME recently played sheep rescue when two were found wandering the roads. They were lovingly cared for by all our volunteers and extensive vet bills were covered by two of HOME's Directors. This is Clyde saying goodbye and thank you to volunteer Jennifer before leaving to a lovely new home with girlfriend Bonnie.
