Horse Heroes Help Give a Second Chance to Severely Injured Horses

The Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch has established a way for the thousands of persons interested in the fate of the equine survivors of last week’s horrific horse-trailer accident to help.

The Horse Heroes sponsorship program has been created featuring photos and descriptions of the surviving horses and hinny. (A hinny is the product of a female ass and a male horse.) Each animal can be sponsored for $25 or more. Sponsor an injured horse by calingl 314-951-1542.

Currently, the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch is working with an insurance company to secure ownership of 26 animals so that they will not be sent for slaughter.

Sponsorship of the surviving horses will help with costs associated with gaining ownership, meeting the mounting medical expenses to treat their injuries and providing a safe haven for them.
