Please help us raise the urgent amount of $2,000 to help pay for his surgery!
We were touched by the story of this little colt who is only 6 months old, but faced being "disposed" of due to a severe hernia that he suffers from. The current care takers are not able to afford the surgery.
Fortunately, Hope Farm in Delta has agreed to adopt him, provided that Karmavore can raise the funds required for his surgery. We will be saving him from a terrible fate of either being put up for disposal auction or possibly even rendered into fertilizer.
In honor of our campaign, the colt will be named "Karma".
His hernia (which you can see in the 2nd picture) is a sac that formed because his abdominal wall muscles did not close. A bit of bowel sticks into it. If this twists and cannot be pushed back in it will get gangrene and he will die in pain. If we do not pay for the surgery then his owners will "dispose" of him... and he will die. He is otherwise a healthy little fellow and should just be able to run and play with the other horses. He will never go to the track and he will find a forever home if we can get together and give him a chance.
Karmavore has agreed to raise the funds required for the surgery. We know that we can count on all of our wonderful supporters and save Karma!
Karmavore will be accepting donations in-store and online, as well as putting 20% of all sales until the end of September towards the cause.
Please consider making a generous donation and/or shopping at Karmavore this month!
Special thanks to Janet at Hope Farm for making this possible!
