Meet MORNING STARGLOWMORNING STARGLOW

Morning Starglow was just 6 weeks old when she lost her mother to slaughter. Deprived of her Mother's milk to nourish and protect her, she collapsed and nearly died. She was in the hospital for 17 days before she had the strength to come home and it has taken many months to restore her delicate system with special milk-replacer feeds, immune building supplements, high quality hay and endless TLC. Morning StarGlow has indeed fully recovered. Her recovery is a testament to the mission we serve with your support.

Our bills for vet medical care, supplies, feed and hay have added up into the tens of thousands. Your donations make it possible for us to continue this lifesaving work. Please give generously.
