TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Horse Shoe Equine Rescue, Inc. invited everyone to come visit their rescue animals Saturday afternoon.
They're well known for horses but they were showing off much more Saturday afternoon.
From goats to ponies, donkeys and pigs and of course the horses - visitors saw it all at the open house.
The rescue center wanted to show the community everything they offer at their shelter. It was also a great chance to get the word out about their cause - a rescue that's completely community funded.
"We don't have any type of financial assistance. We're hoping for the public to help us out on that,” said Ron Barnett, Horse Shoe Equine Rescue, Inc. “We're actually trying to replace our 4-wheeler now that was stolen, (key) and hoping to get some funds to do that."
Because of weather the open house was cut a little short. They are re-opening Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m.
If you would like to make a donation, you can do it directly to the rescue center by visiting their Facebook page or by sending the donation to 7337 E. Devonald Ave. Terre Haute, Indiana 47805.
In the coming weeks there will be an account with the Terre Haute First National Bank where donations can be made.
