WHISPERING HEARTS HORSE RESCUE
Saturday July 7, 2012
5TH ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE FUNDRAISER!
My name is Brenda Thompson and I am the owner of Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue in Hagersville, Ontario. The rescue is currently housing many horses, we are full to capacity. Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue receives no funding, therefore I am working on many fundraising initiatives to raise funds for the feed, veterinarian care and the operation of such a large undertaking.
With our 5th Annual Open House Fundraiser on July 7, 2012 fast approaching, I am reaching out to our many friends and supporters along with local businesses to support our cause by sponsoring our fundraiser through a donation of items such as prizes for the prize table, baked goods, items for the BBQ, used garage sale items or used tack and horse supplies.
As you can imagine, it is very expensive rescuing these horses as they need specialized feed, vet care and many hours of handling. This is what has driven me to start Whispering Hearts where we can try to obtain sponsorship, donations and volunteers, as well as educate the public on horse care. Most importantly we also want to provide the public an option when they can no longer care for their horses other than the auction barns.
Many times it is just circumstance that brings the horses to the auctions in such rough shape. I attend many local auctions to purchase horses heading for slaughter as well as receive calls advising of horses in need for various reasons such as cruelty and neglect. We are not here to judge, just to help and make a difference somehow.
We have many success stories and made many families happy by adopting a rescued horse into their family. In the past 4 1/2 years we have taken in over 130 horses and adopted out over 70 to good homes. This would not be possible without public support and the many great volunteers that have crossed our path.
If you are interested in helping Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue through a donation for our fundraiser, please contact me via email or call me at (905) 768-9951 at your earliest convenience. Thank you for taking the time to consider my request and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Yours Truly, Brenda Thompson
