In August, Harmony New Beginnings Animal Rescue (HNBAR) helped in one of our largest and most complicated rescues of 2022. Polk County Animal Control contacted the rescue about several horses in need of help at an illegal, unregistered equestrian business. Upon arrival, the neglect and abuse that these poor animals were subjected to became evident. Many of the horses’ hooves were overgrown and extremely painful. The stalls were filthy and the horses needed immediate medical attention. Nine horses were transported to our facility to begin their recovery.
Our wonderful professionals and volunteers got to work giving these horses the best care possible. The hooves were the first thing to get fixed. With the use of power tools our farriers did their best to alleviate the pain. Unfortunate, one of the horses never recovered from the damage caused by the neglect. Next dentals, immunizations, a healthy diet, constant care, and lots of love were administered.
Today we are happy to report that seven of the horses recovered from their ordeal and have been adopted into their new homes.
Thank you for your support!

Here we all go into the last month of the year. The pressure for most of us because intense. For non-profits the pressure for fund raising and the increased need for services hit, while our families of course want all of our attention for the holidays. We hope everyone will remember to be kind to themselves and those around them. Winter can be a great chance to help others and love each other.
