Every Little Bit Helps

Sometimes you hear a story so touching that you are just compelled to act. Well, that has happened to me. Even when you think that you can’t do anything to help, it is important to remember that every little bit helps. It doesn’t matter if you can’t do a lot about it, even simply sharing the story is better than doing nothing at all.

Yesterday I visited Central Virginia Horse Rescue (CVHR) to pick up our newest pony, Gamble. I saw first hand what the rescue is doing and only caught a glimpse of the many equines getting a second chance thanks to CVHR. Gamble is getting her second chance with us. Her story has a happy ending. Sadly, even horses that have been rescued do not always reach such “fairy tale” status.


Gamble's first day at SCS

One special horse at CVHR needs a third chance. Buddy was surrendered by his owner to CVHR. The owner could not sell him and considered sending him to auction before giving him to CVHR. Buddy is a gorgeous black and white paint colt who is very sick with a lung infection. Although Buddy resides in a safe place, he needs a very expensive surgery to save his life. CVHR is desperately trying to raise funds for Buddy, but they can’t do it alone.

Buddy’s story has also helped me remember that many other horses are going through hard times. This is not the first nor the last time a horse will need our help. It’s the very least I can do to share this story and let you all catch a glimpse into the life of a horse rescue. The stories are  not always happy, but we try our damnedest to help each and every horse reach their fairy tale.

Even if all you can do is share this story, please remember that every little bit helps. We must all come together and try to help this horse reach his fairy tale. Won’t you help save a beautiful, loving horse get a third chance at a happy and healthy life?

Please share this story if you can. If you are able to donate anything towards Buddy’s surgery, please visit CVHR on Facebook or here to learn more. You can donate via PayPal to donations@centralvahorserescue.com or mail a donation to 389 Boydton Plank Road Brodnax, VA 23920. Do what you can! Remember, every little bit helps. 🙂
