At each of the five Sunset Concert this summer Foxhollow Farm has been proud to partner with different nonprofits in our community. Partnering with nonprofits has been a way for Foxhollow to shine a light to the organizations that are dedicated to those in need in the community both 2 and 4 legged.
On September 14th Kentucky Humane Society is joining Foxhollow at the final Sunset Concert of the season. A champion of companion animals The Kentucky Humane Society states in their mission that "Through Leadership, education and proactive solutions, we are creating more compassionate communities.”
In 2015, KHS launched the Equine C.A.R.E. Program (Connect, Assist, Rescue, Educate) to focus on helping the companion or recreational horse. Equine C.A.R.E. priorities include moving horses from crisis into safe homes or rescue, providing re-homing services to horse owners who can no longer keep them, matching available horses with adopters, implementing gelding and wellness clinics, and making educational tools and resources available to our equine community.
One of the stories Kentucky Humane Society shared with us is about the recovery of Talbert. Talbert arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society’s barn in critical need of help. He was estimated to be 25 years old, missing most of his teeth, and was skin and bones with a body scale of 1 out of 9.
Talbert is resilient. With a strong will to live and the help of KHS he is getting the care and nutrition he desperately needs and we are excited to see him on the road to recovery!
Sadly, stories of neglect among animals has become too common. Thankfully the work of KHS to care for animals like Talbert has given hope to many forgotten and mistreated furry friends.
We invite you to join us at Foxhollow on Friday, September 14th in support of KHS. And of course as always don't forget to bring your most loyal friend!
