Review for TMR RESCUE INC, Plantersville, TX, USA
I had only had the privilege of visiting the TMR Rescue ranch one time before moving away from the Houston area, but I had been following them regularly on Facebook for years and still do. Uncle Johnny opened his heart, life and property to these beautiful creatures, and found the perfect and most compassionate person in Marjorie Farabee to manage the rescue. Marjorie and the TMR team of workers and volunteers have traveled thousands of miles over the last many years rescuing primarily donkeys, but other equines also... those who's owners have passed on and left them; those who are being threatened with being shot if someone doesn't arrive to pick them up; those who's owners are alive but do not care if these animals have enough food, water or medical care; those who have been severely injured and left to die on the side of the road (God bless Blue Boy); those who are new in the world and their momma has left them for whatever reason... there are innumerous stories of rescues by the Angels of TMR. And on their side is the Brazos Valley Equine Hospital which is one of the very best animal hospitals that the state of Texas has to offer. BVEH is the first place these donkeys (and others) see when they are rescued. They are thoroughly checked out and, when needed, given all the medical care necessary to get them ready to go to the ranch. Back at the ranch every one of them will still receive regular medical check-ups... shots, teeth floating, hoof cleaning... to name a few of the costly requirements of maintaining a healthy herd. Marjorie and her crew are extremely knowledgeable about placing the newcomers in with the residing ranch residents. She has a gift of being able to read these sad and scared creatures, and making sure they feel safe, secure and loved. And HOW they are LOVED! They have beautiful fields to run around, they have carrots and treats galore (but not too much!), they have the attention and care they so very much deserve, and they are safe once again. I hope you will visit the TMR Rescue if you're ever in the Plantersville area, and see what a marvelous job Uncle Johnny, Marjorie and all of the Angels of the Texas Miracle Ranch are doing to save these loving, kind and peaceful creatures. And don't forget, many of these animals may be adopted. Please go online and make a donation at www.tmrrescue.com or find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TmrRescueInc/.
