These horses need help

There’s a nonprofit horse rescue organization in Auburn, California, called Horses’ Honor, run by a lady named Nina Clark. Very simply, she helps horses in need.

I just received this letter from Judy Gillivan in Walnut Creek:

Dear Gary:
Nina works to help abused, neglected and unwanted horses. She’s an advocate for the older animal that can no longer perform at its peak. Horses’ Honor provides sanctuary for horses that would otherwise likely face slaughter or unnecessary euthanasia. Some of the horses are rehabilitated and adopted, while others are permanent residents.

There is a tack sale on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Auburn Fairgrounds. This is their main fundraiser. Donations of horse equipment (new or used), books, videos, equitation art, apparel, decorative items — all will help. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible, and all the proceeds goes to help these horses.

Tack can be dropped off at Concord Feed in Pleasant Hill and at Western Saddlery in Pleasanton. We can arrange for pickup as well.

The public needs to be aware of the plight of the unwanted horse. It’s a little-known problem, yet an immense one, nationwide.

For further information, you can call Nina at 530-823-8927, or use us at 925-933-8345. The Horses’ Honor Web site is http://www.horseshonor.org. Thanks. (Judy & Jim Gillivan, Walnut Creek)

Like horses? Here’s your chance to help some. Thanks. /Gary
