Helping MSSPA

I want to highlight the message below from the Maine State Society for the

Protection of Animals. I am on their Board of Directors, believe wholeheartedly

in their mission, actively support their programs and support their work

financially. I am asking you to help out as well.

Breezy, the colt born at MSSPA in February, is now a strapping 3-month-old with a big appetite! While he is still nursing for now, he already loves to eat hay and will need more and more as he grows. Horses take years to fully mature, and so Breezy will stay at the MSSPA shelter until he is grown and until his training has progressed far enough to ensure a successful adoption well into the future. During his time at MSSPA, Breezy will eat a lot of hay! An average horse eats a bale of hay every day, at a cost of nearly $2,000 per year. And that's in a year when hay is not as expensive as it is in Maine right now. This year, MSSPA needs to raise $80,000 to provide all the rescued horses the hay and grain they need to thrive. The Society's annual Buy-A-Bale campaign is almost over, and thanks to everyone's generosity the goal is within arm's reach! Since March 1st, an astounding $73,000 has been raised for the MSSPA horses. Can you support my campaign to buy a bale for Breezy and help raise the last $7,000 needed for hay this year?
