“2-Legs For 4-Legs” Walk Across Rhode Island
May 16, 2009
Deidre Sharp, founder and President of Horse Play Equine Rescue and Sanctuary in Saunderstown, RI, will walk across Rhode Island (from the RISPCA in East Providence to Horse Play in Saunderstown) to raise awareness and funds for Horse Play.
A portion of the funds will also be donated to the RISPCA.
Every 5 minutes an American horse is slaughtered in Canada or Mexico, the fate of many horses sold at auction. With the current economic crisis, many people are forced to give up their horses and many of those horses end up at slaughter.
Horse Play provides a safe haven for such horses, but our facility is full and we are also facing the same economic crunch. We are forced to put horses on our “waiting list” but how long can they wait? We receive at least 3-4 calls a week and 5-6 emails from people needing help.
Horse Play is including the RISPCA in this endeavour as they have a fund – the Marvin Fund – which assists owners in difficult situations and helps them to keep their beloved pets – horses included.
Horse Play can only help so many, the RISPCA can help more. Please consider sponsoring Deidre on this walk (approx 35 miles) on Saturday May 16!!
There will be prizes for the top 3 raising the most funds. Any amount will be appreciated and it’s tax-deductible.
