I just received the first newsletter from the Western Montana Equine Rescue and it is amazing. I am not surprised, as all the people I have met in connection with this organization are amazing themselves. Last year I met three horses that had been rescued and I have followed their total rehabilitation. This organization focuses on insuring individual care for each rescued horse. Volunteer caregivers see to the nutritional needs of each animal and those needs are constantly reassessed as the animal regains health. Then, a lot of time is devoted to finding the proper adoptive home. This group works by donation only and appreciate any contributions from the public. The horses receive every bit of the donations. My favorite stories are those of people who drive by one of the foster pastures of rescued horses and see the WMER sign. Then, they go ahead and donate a box of apples or a few sacks of grain (because their grandchild told them the horses looked hungry). Helping animals is a wonderfully fulfilling act. You can tell when you meet the folks involved with WMER, they are happy and fulfilled with their mission - rescuing horses.
