Give Back Program
This program began in the summer of 2010. The intent is to give back to city kids that do not have an opportunity to have an animal in their lives. To learn responiblity for a living animal, enrich their lives with an unconditional love. Each child is paired with an well experienced equine for a project with set goals depending on the couple.
Hi, my name is Scarlett and I am a 30-something thoroughbred mare with a sassy attitude. Some call me fat but i prefer pleasently plump (And I sure didn’t start out that way here at LCAR.) I love hanging out with all of my new friends. It would be great if you would Sponser me through my special Scarlett’s Friends program.
I am a life resident and would like to have another sponsor. i am a quarter horse mare, good disposition and easy to be around. I was originally rescue with some goats and taken to a goat rescue and then came to us. i am now working with kids who are learning about horses
Hi, I’m Kaycee. I am very new to LCAR, having just arrived in February 2009. I am a 22 year “young” Quarter Horse mare.
My life started out pretty good. I was shown in reining and did very well. Or so I thought.
But then, (and I don’t know why) a very bad man got very angry at me and shot me in the eye with a gun. Needless to say, I will never see out of that eye again. But I survived!! This freaked me out so badly and made me so sad and scared. I could not understand why or how this had could happen to me. Then, luckily, a very nice girl took me away from there to try to save my life.
Then something called a computer put this very nice girl in contact with the people at LCAR. They are going to help me and take care of me for the rest of my life.
I met a horse named Styler and he helped me feel very safe during the trailer ride to LCAR. When we got to LCAR Styler showed me which stall was mine and then some very nice people gave me some tender loving care and food. I am very malnourished and I really, really appreciate it. They have done everything to make me feel right at home.
The very next day they started working with me to help me get my confidence back, so one day I can be emotionally, physically and mentally healthy again. I’m already beginning to feel very comfortable here because all they want to do is pet me, brush me and love on me unconditionally.
I really need help from people like you though. I am going to be getting the necessary surgery to close up my wound and the food to make my body healthy. But this all costs, and anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
I will live out my life here at LCAR but I hope that when I’m healthy again I will get to go places and educate the public on how to properly take care of horses.
Thank you so much for your support from all of us at Linn County Animal Rescue
How do you do? My name is Honey and I am a 23 year old Quarter Horse. My previous family loved me enough that when it got to the point where keeping my weight on got to be too hard on them and the other horses picked on me, they brought me to LCAR. Here is where I will live out the rest of my days. Now i am working with kids and hoping to show in 4-H next year.
