I transported these animals from a neighboring state 6 hours away, and I can tell you they are sweet, sweet animals! I fought the urge to adopt them myself but I already have 5 horses. I would like to share a link where the Rescue can receive donations to help as they do this all out of their pocket. This tool accepts PayPal. I would love to see them meet their humble $600 goal!

This is so heartwarming. And definately shows the intelligence and compassion that animals have. And thaks to you Sam Zz for transporting them to this location where it sounds like they are being well taken care of.

Thanks Krista! I do a lot of transport for the Rescue. THey were being well taken care of where they were in Wisc, but the family could not continue their care. They had already stepped in to take over from another party who had been neglecting them. They are so sweet!
