November 02, 2012, 5:14 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Warriors for Chief! “For the Love of a Horse” is collaborating with Georgia Equine Advocates of North Georgia to raise funds for lifesaving surgery for “Chief” a 13 year old Appaloosa rescue horse who has a severe condition called “Osteoarthritis” in his right front pastern. Chief struggles to walk and is essentially three-legged lame. Because of his chronic pain, without the surgery, Chief would have to be euthanized.
Can you say CRAZY?
In this down economy, it is indeed a huge undertaking for anyone, much less little non-profit organizations such as us to raise the estimated $10,000 for Chief's surgery, isn't it? All that money for a horse, you say? Well, who is to say that Chief isn't as deserving as any other horse in need of our help? This is the mission of “For the Love of a Horse” …our way of giving back to the horses who, have throughout history and now given us so much in return. It is because of their beauty, their grace and their loyalty that we champion for them when no one else will.
“For the Love of a Horse” is a non-profit, 501(c) 3, tax exempt organization comprised of volunteers. We are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of equines, specifically those with critical-care medical needs who would otherwise be euthanized. Our mission is to provide these equines with a second chance at life and companionship. We also educate the public, through our “Community Outreach Program”, on respect for all animal life and the importance of compassion, commitment and responsibility. Just take a look at how the horses we've helped, like Chief, who are giving back to your community by looking at our Community Outreach Program on our website…the pictures say it all.
