New Quarantine Facility needed at All Breed Equine Rez-Q

 


For several years now, owner Dale Squeglia, has used her land and her talents to rescue horses in need. The lucky ones have been treated well and feed, but for circumstances beyond control their owners can no longer afford them. These are the lucky horses, and sometimes Squeglia even finds a good home that will adopt them. Then there are the true rescues. Those horses that have been mis-treated, abused, not feed, and are still afraid of humans. These are the sad cases she sees and takes, providing she has enough space to house them.  At this point all professional services possible are given for free or almost free.  However, horses still cost money.  Lots of money.  Ask any horse owner, they all have a story or two about just how much money having a “pet” horse will cost!

All Breed Equine Rez-Q would like to build an area where they can quarantine any horse that is ill or may be showing signs of something that’s just not right. These horses should not be around the other horses. Having a sick horse is one thing, but having ten sick horses is another!

For several years now, owner Dale Squeglia, has used her land and her talents to rescue horses in need. The lucky ones have been treated well and feed, but for circumstances beyond control their owners can no longer afford them. These are the lucky horses, and sometimes Squeglia even finds a good home that will adopt them. This is one reason why All Breed Equine will have their Philly-Steak Fundraiser this Saturday at the Garden City Grange in Snohomish at 800 - 2nd Street. They will offer their Philly Steak Cheese Sandwich meal for just $7.00. They will also offer a homemade Meatball Sandwich with chips and a soda for just $6.00.  All proceeds, 100%, will go towards the new Quarantine Facility and towards hay and grain to feed their horses. The event will be taking place between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. this Saturday, June 21st.

The goals for All Breed Equine Rez-Q are straight forward:  To provide sanctuary and protection for needy, homeless,  abandoned, abuse neglected and donated horses.  To provide an educational format to assist people to be better horse owners, supporters and equestrians. To stimulate public awareness and participation in horse protection issues within the community at large.

They also need volunteers. Any type of volunteer, skilled or unskilled, they will help anyone with a heart for horses and their well-being get started.
