Helpings for Northwoods Animal Rescue Sanctuary & Adoption Center
You can help Northwoods Animal Rescue
Sanctuary & Adoption Center like never before. We've arranged doubled
donations at over 1,200 great stores. But time is limited. You must make your
purchases by midnight, 12/2/12 to get the double donations. There is no limit,
but after midnight, donations return to their normal (but still pretty awesome)
This status alert is only for you. Unfortunately, it cannot be
shared with friends and family. The double donation is secret, and won't show
on our site, but when you make a purchase, it WILL show up in your iGive
Here's an easy link to use: http://www.iGive.com (you
may need to login first), but no matter how you shop via iGive, your donation
will be doubled this weekend.
iGive Button makes it really, really simple
automatically makes sure that a portion of your purchases at over 1,200 stores
means a free donation. Shopping = Giving year 'round. Care to try it out?

above picture shows the extensive damage the buck-shot caused throughout his hind quarters, legs, belly and back. In
addition to being shot, this poor kind horse had hooves that had not
been trimmed in what looked like 3 years causing crippling and severe tendon damage. He was covered in hundreds of ticks and he showed obvious signs of abuse as well as malnutrition. He had not been dewormed or vaccinated. His teeth never done and he was a stallion (he is now of course a gelding). Silver's intake expenses were well in excess of $1,000.00. Silver is currently in rehab and will reside in our sanctuary for quite some time, possibly for the rest of his life. Silver is only 5 years old.Every little bit helps. We cannot do this without you.

I Take Responsibility For The Horse Within
I will see that he has every day,
plenty of clean water and good hay.
Shelter from cold, wind and rain
and the ration he needs daily of grain
I'll see to his need for play and exercise.
and Love him, for that is the bind that ties.
I’ll teach him and I promise to learn
His trust in me, I’ll take time to earn.
He’ll not be just a toy that I can afford,
that I forget, except to pay board.
I’ll see to his needs day in and day out,
not leaving him in his stall to sulk and pout.
I know that I own him but he too owns me,
I’m responsible to keep him happy and healthy.
He is not a burden, but a lifelong friend.
Not one I’ll abandon when his life nears its end.
It was my choice, not his, to have a horse
From that choice his life should be better, not worse.
I’ll not ship him off when he’s too old to ride,
finding excuses and reasons behind which to hide.
Like marriage it was meant to last, not end in divorce.
For that divorce often means the death of the horse.
It is more like a child, the purchase a birth,
a being to care for, a life that has worth.
I acknowledge this commitment with honor and pride,
I’ll care for this horse, he’s not just something to ride.
If the day ever comes, when my promise I can’t fulfill,
I’ll see that he is placed with someone who will.
