Chelsea Krotzer reported in The Olympian:
“The extra care for the expectant horses has put a strain on Hooved Animal Rescue of Thurston County, the nonprofit horse rescue that helps the Sheriffs Office in animal seizures.
‘Its depleted our budget rather considerably,’ said John Countryman, Hooved Animal Rescue member and former president. ‘But we do whats needed; its what people give the money for.’
To help bolster the organizations budget and help cover the continual medical costs for the expectant mothers and other animals in the seizure, HARTC is hosting a baby shower-themed fundraiser [TODAY & TOMORROW].
The fundraiser is scheduled from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. June 8-9 at Yelm Farm and Pet on Bald Hill Road Southeast.
Raffle tickets will be given for every $5 donated. Tickets can also be purchased for $5 for the chance to win donated prizes including artwork, tack and gift certificates.”
