I started my own rescue in 2003. However after my first year learned I could not afford the vet cost of the animals I took in, so began doing more referral to other 501 groups that would get a tax break. I have also lobbied for animal reights in Madison on lobby days.
I have fought tresspassing charges of my neighbors that neglect the horses and dogs they breed for greed, in order to get vet care for one of their horses that was down Feb 14th, 2010. See the stor on my webpages.
