Molino Mustang seized after abandonment

On, 2-11-15, Panhandle Equine Rescue assisted Escambia County Animal Control in seizing one mustang gelding, that we have named Smarty. He was abandoned at a vacant property with no food or water, so authorities had to step in and remove him. Dr. Sara Clark, DVM came out this morning to evaluate Smarty (and help us name him). He will have to be fed small amounts of grain for several days, but should fully recover.

Donations would be appreciated to aid in Smarty’s rehabilitation. Your tax deductible contribution can be sent to: P.E.R., P.O. Box 777, Cantonment, FL. 32533 or you can use Paypal on our website:
We rely on your support to rescue horses like Smarty. Please help if you can; no amount is too small.

Lucky Out on Trial Adoption

Lucky was transported lucky 2to Ocala, FL. today to a foster home. Thanks to Tara and her daughter for traveling the distance to come and pick him up. He will remain with Tara for a two month trial period, after which they will adopt him or return him to PER. We usually don’t have foster homes more than 100 miles away, but this was a special case, so we allowed it this time. We pray this will be his forever home. And also thanks to Victoria for coming out and spending time answering questions and riding Lucky. lucky 3
