HOPEFUL HEARTS HORSE RESCUE INC
March 11, 2011
I have know Kim for three wonderful years. In those years I have worked closely with her at an emergency veterinary clinic where she has shown so much compassion and love for all animals. She has always had a love for horses, and recently became interested in starting a rescue. Kim and her father have done a great amount of research, and networking to get their rescue started. (On a side note they both also work closely with the Oregon Hay Bank to get hay to people who can't afford it.) I was so happy to hear when they were set and on their way to rescuing their first horse, Norman! Norman is a 5 year old Thoroughbred, who was potentially going to be sent to slaughter, Kim and her father happily took Norman in. Norman was going to be adopted by someone for eventing, but he had some neurologic issues that could be permanent. Kim, of course, fell in love with the big red gelding and is keeping him on a beautiful piece of property that her friend is graciously letting Kim keep him at. Kim has taken great care of Norman and he is on his way to recovering! There have been no signs of neurologic deficits at this point. Kim and her father are desperately trying to get grants to buy property to keep Norman and their future rescues at. Any horse would be lucky to be in Kim's hands. She has done an amazing job and is a great person to work with!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I work with Kim on a daily basis. She has great work ethic and compassion for people and animals. Norman looks so healthy and loved. He is definitely in the right hands.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would get them their own facility so that they could rescue more horses.
