Forwarding this request from the Addison County Humane Society: they have an urgent need for donated horse blankets.
Contact information is below in case you can help.
A few weeks ago, many horses were rescued from a site in Middlebury that were headed to slaughter in Canada. Several community members came together to rescue these horses and save them from a premature ending. While they all appear to be doing well, the recent cold weather has been challenging. Several of the horses are without blankets.
If you know of anyone who might be willing to donate blankets for these horses or would be willing to loan blankets for the winter, please contact me directly. I may be reached at 802-33-1443 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, thank you for your support!
Jackie Rose, Executive Director
Addison County Humane Society
So you see the problem, particularly since this is an unseasonably warm spell for the lower Champlain Valley.
Thanks for your help in passing the word to people who might be able to donate or loan blankets.
