ICHS Equine Edition- Update!


As some of you may remember, ICHS took possession of two horses in April that were in a bad situation and in desperate need of immediate help. While we do not have the facility for large animals, we were lucky enough to have a wonderful foster home willing to take on the two girls (Rosie and Delia) and provide the much needed care to nurse them back to health. During this time we asked for donations to help with their care, and received some very generous support for these sweet mares- thank you!. Rosie in particular (pictured) was a body condition score of 1, extremely malnourished, and was close to not making it. However, in just a couple short months in their foster home, both girls flourished.

They came a very long way, and with good food and meticulous care, quickly gained weight and began the process of learning to trust humans once again. Once the girls had returned to decent health and were ready to travel, we transferred them to the Dane County Humane Society (DCHS). DCHS has a beautiful new equine facility and is much better equipped to handle the process of adoption with horses- we are very appreciative for their assistance with Rosie and Delia. Both horses now have a clean bill of health and are awaiting their perfect homes! Please contact the Dane County Humane Society if you would consider opening your home to a very special rescue horse.

Check out the before and after photos of Rosie! What a lovely senior mare!
