We are in crisis!!!

The economy has caused people to dump their dogs and cats in the country. There are a lot. Some property owners shooting them. Now there calling me to pick them. We have old dog, young dogs, pregnant dogs, a dog who had puppies under the house. We need medical care for some of the dogs in Dog food ain't cheap. We are getting them vaccinated and adopting them out but we need donations to take care of them and feed and care for our Sanctuary horses. We are protecting these dogs from predators such as coyotes, Bobcats and foxes. Please help if you can.

The drought, inflation, and the Pandemic have been scary times for the us. Our funds have run dry.

We also other needs:

We need $20,000 for our Mustangs. Our herds need hay, grain, and water. The drought has past for now but will return in the summer. It always does. Our stock ponds our full. It is great. The ponds don't only support our horses they support deer, raccoons, rabbits, bobcats, squirrels, and all North Texas wildlife in our area depend on our ponds as a water source. So many have died through the high temperatures of 107°. Bobcats sound scary but Mustangs have no fear of them and a Bobcat is smart enough to stay away from a dominant wild Mustang.

We try to help horse owners keep their horses by supplying hay to help them through these tough times. Your donations help so much and the horses appreciate it more than you know. God Bless

Our Needs

WE NEED WATER, HAY, GRAIN,DOG FOOD, CAT FOOD AND SUPPLIES TO CARE FOR ALL OF OUR WILD MUSTANGS. PLUS DOG AND CAT SUPPLIES, DOG CRATES SIZE 15 INCH TIRES FOR OUR HORSE TRAILER.

Shawnee Trail Wild Mustang Sanctuary, formerly Horses Lives Matter, has continued through the most challenging years. 

Hay is $29 a small bale if we can find it, in most places. Grain has risen. I cannot give up. God has handed us major obstacles we keep moving. If we give up the Mustangs could end up in slaughter. That will never happen.

With the state of the economy, we have had few donations. We must raise $6000 to keep doing what we do.

Mission

Shawnee Trail Wild Mustang Sanctuary, formerly, Horses Lives Matter Equine Sanctuary 501c3 is committed to using our expertise and resources to achieve our cause of protecting our national heritage, the wild Mustang.

We are extremely small but our reach is broad.

I was a battered a battered woman. I have added a program for abused women in shelters. We are supplying make-up to them. This will help over all for job interviews as well as increase their self-esteem. I hope to create my own brand created just for these ladies.

Our yearly budget is $25,000 to $50,000. We pay $125 Per Mustang from the Bureau of Land Management to save these horses from slaughter. Once they are at our Sanctuary they are released into 1000 acres.

We keep them as free as we can. The purchase is just the beginning.

The donations buy hay, grain, wormers, medical needs, other items needed to care for each horse. It cost $275 a month to care for them. Our goal is to keep each horse in its home.

Make-up although most is donated. I, myself, was a victim of physical abuse. I finally hot out.

For the last two years, we have focused on caring for the herd. We have had so many challenges but we stay positive to save as many animals as we can.

Donors are spread so thin and we understand. We appreciate any amount you can spare. God bless all.
