Help 'Spirit' retire in Dehradun

I met Spirit when she was a working horse in Raxaul. Unable to carry the load of the cart she was pulling, her legs giving way, ribs showing, her body pierced with open wounds and sores, the horse cart owner continued to whip her. There was nothing else to do but to stop him and rid the horse off its burden. I then proceeded to a police complaint. The cart owner knew his horse was in poor shape. Parroting that she was violent, he grudgingly untied her from the cart and tied her to ground next to the police station we caught her from. In no time, of course, he left the horse and ran away, very well aware of how poorly he had treated the horse.

With her fiery spirit in spite of being blind in one eye, I have named her Spirit. She is now recuperating at a temporary shelter in Raxaul, the Indian town bordering Nepal but it would be a tragedy if she was left there. At PFA Uttarakhand, we have built an amazing equine shelter where I plan to help her retire but I cannot do it alone. I need your help in getting her there. Please help me raise 1 lakh for her transport from Bihar to Uttarakhand by the end of this year so 2020 is truly the beginning of a new life for Spirit.

Spirit, the mare, we rescued from a cruel and abused past in Raxaul, is enjoying her retirement at our Equine Retirement Center in Chharba, Dehradun. She has received proper veterinary care and treatment upon arrival and has been dewormed and  innoculated against FMD & Tetanus. Spirit is slowly being accepted into the herd of other rescued equines residing at our sanctuary. She has started acquiring a healthy weight, a far cry from her erstwhile malnourished and starving self. We are super grateful for your support. It has truly given Spirit a new lease of life. A lifetime free of abuse and maltreatment. She will now live out her remaining years enjoying the Dehradun climate, showered with love and attention. Thank You, once again for making this rescue a success.

Spirit and other animals have reached PFA Uttarakhand's sanctuary in Dehradun and are very pleased with their matching blankets and want to thank you for helping them reach home. They wouldn't have survived without your help. It's because of you that they now have a 'happily every after' story.

Thank you!
