  – A Rescued Horse with 1000s of ticks and very neglected
Lady Shoshanna was rescued by Hope4Horses on  March 14th 2017.  She had been reported as tied on too short a rope with no water & no food.  She could not reach any grass!  When we arrived the worst part of her condition was thousands of ticks on her *everywhere*, including up her nose! She was weak, malnourished, dehydrated but oh so sweet and ready to be rescued.   She is now rescued, 100% tick FREE and living on Defensa Horse Rescue land.  Lady Shoshanna is being well cared for but needs a few more donations and/or shares!  Spread the word and help us help more horses in need like Lady Shoshanna.  Follow on Shoshanna’s facebook album!

Papi!  The Original ‘A Rescued Horse’ – Donate to his Sanctuary-Bound Travel Costs. Papi was rescued before Defensa was even formed and he was rescued because many people in Rincon Puerto Rico came together to help him.  He now has the opportunity to travel the 3 hours / 100 miles to our beautiful Sister Sanctuary in Airbonito Puerto Rico.   The ride is long and travel costs are $400 but we know there are people out there who want to see Papi living free roaming on over 90 acres with other rescued horses and a most beautiful family of care givers. Photos of Defensa Sister Sanctuary in Airbonito HIS ORIGINAL RESCUE STORY ….   He was an unclaimed and lame (check out those 2 front legs) horse who was living on the streets of Rincon, Puerto Rico. He was tied up at the baseball field for months until the city manager kicked him off. Then he was tied up in the trails behind El Faro. Both places lacked enough grass/food and water. The final straw, when we decided to take responsibility for Papi was on Christmas Eve Day, 2011 – Papi was tied up on the dangerous curve of the 413 (at Puesta del Sol). He’d gotten off rope and was walking across the road – obviously dangerous for Papi, our community and tourists.  A few photos of Papi’s Rescue Journey – We hope you will donate to help us add his Happy Home Ending photos at Aibonito!

MO is Sanctuary Bound – He just needs your financial help to get there!!!

MO had a little set back in his happy home ending, in that his adoptive home with Prince Casper Yetti didn’t work out.  We’d like to think it was not MO’s fault.  He was just being a horse and a horse takes time to adjust to new surroundings, people and training.   But MO has been accepted at our Sister Sanctuary in Aibonito.  After living a not so easy life we are very excited for MO.   Your donations will go towards his $200 travel costs and his feed until he leaves Defensa’s care sometime in May 2017.  View MO’s full rescue back story.
