At the beginning of March, RCDAS had a large confiscate case. 24 thoroughbreds were rescued from starvation and neglect. Because of the nature of the case, they have been released to rescue only. We wanted to help. So, we started a GoFundMe to raise the funds to rescue Music Award, one of the 24 horses. Well, yesterday we discovered she had already been taken by a rescue. That's great news! So, we are now taking the raised funds, with permission from donors, to rescue another. Yesterday, we visited the shelter and fell in love with Souci. There are three at that particular shelter and let me tell you, not easy picking. I wish we could take all three. How do we decide? well, Souci practically crawled in our pocket and she is infamous for not trailering. She had had an adopter but she wouldn't load. That kind of red flagged her. She also has an eye issue. I'm not sure how much of an issue it is, or whether it is treatable, but she has some white spots in one eye. Those two factors made her more urgent than the other two. It's tough choosing. I wish we could take all three. Stay tuned for Souci's arrival.
