For the Winter of 2016, BioStar has pledged a portion of our proceeds from Bio Yeast EQ to help support Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc (HLER).
In October of 2015, Peaceable Farm in Orange County Virginia was the center of a sad and horrific scene. Animals abused, left to die, or already dead. There were 101 live horses, donkeys and mules on the property plus a number of dead animals. These horses, ponies and donkey were all in varying states of starvation and neglect. Some were not much more than skin and bones, others were physically decent shape but were very fearful.
Many animals were taken to rescue centers, and are on the mend. However, the rescue centers that have taken the animals need continual support to aid the animals in the longer term, more than just during the shock of the news that came in October. Rehabilitating these horses will be a long process; it could be many more months.
Hope’s Legacy in Afton, VA took in 29 of these horses, 24 of whom have survived. HLER is an all breed rescue, working to save equines from a variety of situations including abuse, abandonment, neglect, slaughter or whose owners can no longer care for them. They provide rescue regardless of age or disability. Equines will be rehabilitated and placed in adoptive homes whenever possible.
BioStar believes in HLER’s mission and wants to help. Your purchase of Bio Yeast EQ from January through March, 2016 will help BioStar donate a percentage to help these animals get the care they so badly need.
