Horses in need of Sponsorship

Sponsor a horse

 

As horses in need are rescued and welcomed at Whispering Hearts, it is hoped that the majority will go on to adoption into loving forever homes. However, for those with dealing with chronic health issues, past injuries or trauma or advanced age, Whispering Hearts becomes their loving forever home.

Providing lifelong care for these horses is a considerable demand on resources. The WHHR Sponsorship Program offers generous donors a rewarding way to be an important part of the solution - a way to show how much you care.

If you are undecided about which horse is right for you, a general sponsorship of the HERD could be the way to go.  So many stories, so much hardship in their past and all so deserving of the opportunity of a wonderful future. While it is hoped that the majority will eventually find loving forever homes, allowing more horses to be rescued by WHHR, many will wait a considerable length of time before they find their perfect match. In the meantime, diligent care will continue and donations to help fund that care would be gratefully welcomed.

These horses are in need of your sponsorship:

BELINDA is a 9 year old chestnut thoroughbred mare who arrived at WHHR in January 2016 as her owner could no longer care for her.  This beautiful girl is in foal, due in the next few months. Belinda has a massive brachial cyst on her neck which is very difficult to remove without causing nerve damage to her face therefore the vet recommends leaving it for now.   Belinda brought with her a substantial level of anxiety but she is gradually learning that being at WHHR means she can begin to trust and relax.

Beautiful BELLA is a 12-year-old black quarter horse. Unfortunately, Bella has severe cataracts and is close to being blind. When Bella was one year of age she was rescued from a terrible home. Sadly, her new home and the next proved to be unsuitable for her. Bella’s disability makes it difficult for her to be in an enclosed space therefore life in the herd at WHHR is the best environment for this girl. Brenda’s innate knowledge and compassion have turned Bella’s life around and have ensured that a safe and comfortable future lies ahead for Bella.

HALO SLEW was one of a group of nine horses and one donkey rescued by Whispering Hearts from a farm in Brockville in April 2015. Halo arrived at the farm underweight, sick and one side of her face paralyzed. She had gone blind in her left eye, because her paralysis prevents her from blinking.

Shortly thereafter it was discovered that Halo’s grandfather was Seattle Slew, a Triple Crown winner and widely considered to be one of the top ten thoroughbred race horses ever. Fate was not so kind to Halo and her life as a brood mare took her down a rough path with questionable owners. When Halo’s last owner could no longer care for her, her journey to WHHR was a positive stepping stone to a life where she will receive an abundance of love and the best of care.

HOLLY is a 12 year old paint who came to Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue Centre in the fall of 2015. Four years prior to being welcomed at WHHR, Holly was sent to auction with a severe knee injury and faced a very uncertain future. She was lucky enough to be rescued by a family and the next chapter of her life began. Unfortunately Holly’s family suffered a tragedy and had to rehome all their horses. The family turned to Whispering Hearts who accepted Holly with her foal, Nashville, by her side. As Holly was not handled routinely prior to her arrival, she was fearful of interaction with humans however with the compassion and patience so prevalent at WHHR, Holly began to trust and accept the loving care and medical treatment she so sorely needed.

WILLOW is a beautiful 22-yearold Appaloosa more who arrived at WHHS in 2009. Willow’s owner went through a very difficult period and sadly passed away leaving Willow with no home. Sadness and uncertainty was followed by good fortune when Willow was welcomed with open arms at Whispering Hearts. Her transition to a new life was not always easy due to her nervous nature however in time Willow gratefully realized she had found her forever home. Only good things await this lovely mare!

Handsome ZEUS is a 12 year old bay thoroughbred, 17 hands high, who has been at WHHR for 6 years.  In his earlier career, Zeus was a successful racehorse.  Sadly Zeus went from a great owner to a not so great owner and his life took a downhill turn.  Lucky for Zeus, his first caring owner tracked him down in the U.S. and brought him back to retire at WHHR.  Although Zeus has a commanding appearance, his battered confidence is still a work in progress.  Lots of WHHR TLC will continue to do wonders for him.
