NEWS FROM GODSPEED  

Spring 2019
 
See also "From the Director" for our new direction, my graduating with an Animal Policy Certificate and Godspeeds partnership with the ASPCA Field Investigations and Response Team.  
 
The hay bank program distributed 765 bales of hay in 2015, 985 bales of hay in 2016, 1585 bales of hay in 2017 and still counting for 2018.! The hay went to other rescues, programs that service children and/or the disabled, and responsible horse or farm animal owners who were having temporary difficulty. The hay bank is for all hooved animals. There is a short application and site visit required for hay support.
 
The Euthanasia Support Program helped 6 horses in 2018, 3 in 2019. We gave them a loving home with the time they had left. Plenty of food, horse friends, room to roam and time to be horses again. Most importantly,  they were able to know kindness again. We say goodbye to Simon, Danny and Sinder, Pierre, Pinky, Sunny, Lobo and White Cloud and feel blessed to know them, care for them and send them off  respectfully, like all horses deserve.
