It seems as though we've been asking for help a lot lately. We have. With the horse market in the toilet, and many people cutting back on expenses, elder horses are often the first to suffer. Special diets, extra feedings, and frequent vet or dental exams combined with job losses and higher prices mean more people are trying to rehome their horses or need help getting over a "hump."
Trying to find as many ways as possible that you can help TREES help equine elders at small cost to you, we opened a gift registry at valleyvet.com . The items listed are small items that we use frequently. Please don't feel that "small" donations don't help. For example, during last December's Giving Tree program, shoppers at two local feed stores bought the same types of items while in the store...........all told, the total value of items donated was a little over $400, the equivalent of almost two weeks worth of feed for the entire TREES herd. The "little" things add up.
So, if you visit http://www.valleyvet.com to shop, please remember to look for the TREES gift registry at http://www.valleyvet.com/ct_registry_detail.html?ID=2347 while you are there. Every package of gauze and every roll of coflex will be sincerely and gratefully appreciated.
