Review for Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue Society Ltd, Mount Airy, MD, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I was very concerned about the horse they advertised as abused so naturally I made a donation to help it. Turns out the horse had cancer and had never been abused. I then decided to check out their website some more..by golly they are nasty. Called a woman Jeffry Dalmer so I looked her up and she won her case against them. They have not filed for 2011 and I checked with IRS (I am now checking out everyone I give money to) and 2010 is not complete. Now I read on a forum that there are Draft Horses in trouble and they will only take them if someone else will pay for transportation.

*When Traveler arrived with her left eye enucleated and hanging out, we wrote that we SUSPECTED trauma. When exam by a veterinarian and x-rays confirmed that she had cancer, we immediately informed everyone of her diagnosis. *In a blog we did compare a local woman accused of abusing 152 horses to several infamous people. She did not "win" her case, she offered a plea bargain accepting ten counts of neglect. This was a case between the alleged abuser and Queen Anne's County Animal Control, not us. *I have no idea of what draft horses in danger you speak of.
