Help Us With Pablo’s Journey!
Local nonprofit raising money to give abandoned horse
a second chance at a happy home.
Sacramento, CA â€“TEAM (Teaching Everyone Animals Matter), the nonprofit affiliate of the Sacramento
County Animal Shelter, is raising funds to help cover the costs of an expensive surgery needed to give
Pablo the Pinto horse a chance at finding his â€œforever home.â€
Pablo arrived at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter on Bradshaw Road in mid-February. He was
seized by Animal Care and Regulation officers, along with several other horses (including a very pregnant
mare), because of severe malnutrition and neglect.
With lots of good food and attention, Pablo began to flourish at the shelter. But soon after his arrival, an
equine veterinary exam revealed that Pablo was suffering from a relatively rare medical condition that
would require extensive urogenital surgery. Without the surgery, his adoption and health prospects would
Pablo’s surgery on March 13 at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine was successful, but some
post-operative concerns required a longer stay for him at UC Davis, ultimately resulting in a substantially
larger vet bill for the county shelter. TEAM’s Special Medical Needs Fund has helped defray some of the
expenses relating to Pablo’s surgery, but additional funds are still needed .
Community donations are now being sought to help pay for Pablo’s remaining medical costs.

A nonprofit organization that has been rescuing horses and other animals for nine years said Wednesday that it was curtailing its activities and considering closure.
The Grace Foundation is on a 600-acre ranch in a rural part of El Dorado Hills.
For the past year, the group has been locked in a legal battle that has left it with more than $800,000 in unpaid bills.
The battle began more than a year ago when the Grace Foundation rescued 36 horses from Whispering Pines Ranch near Susanville in Lassen County.
A situation involving the Humane Society of the Sierra Foothills earlier this year has raised questions regarding the structure of the organization, particularly its chain of command.
Although the incident happened in February, a couple involved has only recently taken the matter to law enforcement, and the incident is now reportedly being investigated by another humane society.
Roseville resident Alexis Reynolds said that she and her husband, Michael, and friend Dominique Landis were helping care for two horses after they were removed in 2011 from the A Chance for Bliss sanctuary, which turned its animals over to HSSF when faced with foreclosure.
The horses were Mystery and Ranger, a blind horse in her 20s and her 36-year-old friend. The pair was pastured in Loomis, and the Reynolds and Landis checked on and fed them regularly for four months. When Alexis Reynolds, who has ridden horses since she was a child, requested that she and her husband adopt the pair, she said, Humane Officer Rosemary Frieborn told her no.

Oregon could be the site of the latest proposed horse processing plant since Congress lifted its ban on USDA funding for horsemeat inspections, according to the projectâ€™s organizer Dave Duquette. In February a Wyoming-based group announced its intention to develop a horse slaughter plant in Missouri. Feasibility and site selection studies for that plant are currently under way, despite the fact the initial proposed plant site was abandoned earlier this week.
Duquette said the Oregon plant would be located on a 250-acre parcel in Hermiston. When operational, the plant would process more than 100 animals per day and employ between 50 and 100 workers, he said. The $3 million project would be developed by private investors with possible participation by Native American tribes in the region.
This is a truly amazing tale that involvesÂ a woman, a horse, and a group of dedicated rescuers on a beach in Australia.
AÂ woman was out for an afternoon ride with her daughter when her horse suddenly sunk neck deep into the thick mud of Avalon Beach in Geelong, Victoria. What followed, reports Newspix,Â was aÂ grueling three-hour rescue caught inÂ photos. As Nicole Graham held the head of 18-year-old Astro from drowning in the rising tide,Â members of the fire department, emergency services, and a vet attempted to free theÂ 1,100-pound horse. First they tried using fire hoses, then a winch. Making little progress, the vet, Stacey Sullivan, sedated himÂ so that he could be pulled outÂ with a tractor.
