[RC] Eighteen Arabian Horses Doomed to Local Kill Sales - Karen Everhart

If you can help - please do.  If not, please cross post!




Individuals interested in one of these horses can visit www.denkaisanctuary.org (http://www.denkaisanctuary.org/arabians.html) for a photo and profile of each horse.  Photographs courtesy of Ray Reichley. If interested, contact Denkai at: info@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or call (970) 895-2337.  Individuals are encouraged to attend and bid on these horses in an attempt to get them to safety.


Denkai is exploring the option to purchase the horses back, thus giving the Sanctuary brand inspection, i.e. ownership and the ability to adopt these horses in to pre-screened homes. 


This can happen with contributions totaling $7,000 to purchase them at auction, average cost in this area runs .44 per lb. and a total of $22,000 that would cover costs for the next twelve months to house, train, and adopt these eighteen horses into permanent homes.  Denkai can not simply just purchase these horses back without having the funding in place to care for them.  If the Sanctuary can raise a total of $29,000 by April 15, 2009, this is a viable option.


Contributions toward these horses can be made to: Denkai Animal Sanctuary
