Thank you so much to Rocky Mountain PBS for showcasing our Annie Project: a partnership with 13 Colorado dude ranches, including Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch! We greatly appreciate the collaboration with both the ranches and this news outlet to get the word out about how we can help ranches during the COVID pandemic and beyond.
Here at Drifter's Hearts of Hope, one might not notice the impact of COVID-19 at first. But, when you look below the surface, you'd see the extra hay in the barn for our COVID-19 Equine Assistance Program, the extra horses that came to us as financially-impacted owner surrenders, and the extra expenses from rehabilitating horses that needed additional financial support. We have seen the impact of COVID-19 on our rescue and our community, and have sought to increase our contribution to our horses and our community.
The ASPCA took note of our commitment and responded with a $25,000 grant to support our initiatives to help our local horse community! This funding will go directly to our COVID-19 Equine Assistance Program and the horses that we have and will take in as a result of the pandemic. Thank you so much to the ASPCA for helping us help more horses!
We recently partnered with A Home for Every Horse on an article covering COVID-19 and resources for horse owners during these times. This article was published recently in the Practical Horseman as well as Horse & Rider - pick up their June issue today or read the full article below!
