We have a new arrival today from Harnett County! Kinsey has been loose and on her own since early December, and no one was able to catch her. Thanks to a good Samaritan in the area, Deborah Gillis, bringing hay/feed to her since Sunday when told of her, and to Tori and Justin McLeod of NCSMART for their help with roundpen panels and gentle coaxing, the mare was easily caught this morning and brought to USERL quarantine/rehab barn. She is thin, and very timid. We will update with more info later! Update! Read more...
Donations for her care can be made via paypal below. Please type "For Kinsey" in the note box.

Susan Lee is a dear lady and a big supporter for USERL - NC Triangle Region who was recently in the news with a plea for help in finding her animals new homes. Sadly, Susan passed away February 2nd after her long battle with cancer. She will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
All of her horses (6) are USERL adopted or fostered from our program. Currently, and since her treatments began in 2011, dedicated USERL volunteers have been helping with the daily care of the horses.
Go to "Susan's Sweethearts" to see dogs and cats needing adoption. Contact info for dog/cat adoption and the horses is listed on the website.
