New Windsor Farm Closing April 2014
HORSENET HORSE RESCUE MOVES TO SINGLE LOCATION
Horses Located At Closing New Windsor, MD, Location in Need of Foster Homes
Mt. Airy, MD (February 12, 2014) – In response to declining financial support HorseNet Horse Rescue (HNHR) is closing its New Windsor Farm location leaving many horses in need of foster care homes. The struggling economy and a severe decline in donations is the cause for the closure.
For several years HNHR has successfully maintained two Maryland farms - New Windsor and Mt. Airy - to support the horses calling HNHR their home. With over 80 horses in their program, HNHR is looking to move those horses that have not been re-homed or relocated to foster care facilities to the Mt. Airy Farm. These moves are necessary to reduce the financial burden of operating two facilities.
“We hope to transition the New Windsor horses directly into new homes or foster care to reduce the stress on them and to avoid overburdening our Mt. Airy farm,” said Melanie Biemiller, HorseNet’s Assistant Executive Director. “Unfortunately, we will lose some of our dedicated volunteers who are unable to travel to our Mt. Airy farm.”
This closure will not affect the care HNHR provides to the horses in its care. HNHR remains committed to the horses and their well-being. Staff is asking the horse community to open their stalls and fields and provide the New Windsor horses homes.
The owner of the New Windsor farm has generously given HNHR until May 1, 2014 to vacate the premises. HNHR would like to thank the owner of the New Windsor farm who has been very understanding and supportive of HorseNet and its horses.
This time of year is very hard on our horses so we can use all the support we can get to get each and every one through the winter. Please consider making a monetary donation, 100% of which is used for their care or a donation of good quality hay and blankets (of all sizes) is welcome.

MONTHLY PLEDGE CAMPAIGN
OUR HORSES NEED YOUR HELP!!! HorseNet cares for 70+ horses at any given time, and to care for our special herds we rent two properties. Our "land lords" have been incredibly understanding of our situation, and we greatly appreciate them working with us; however donations are down significantly and making ends meet is getting increasingly difficult.
The economy has affected us all and HorseNet is no exception. This decrease in donations leaves us struggling to pay our expenses, and we need your help to ensure our rescued horses have the security of these farms while they wait patiently for their life long loving home.
Our goal is to raise $3,000 per month to cover rent expenses, and if just 150 amazing supporters donate just $20/month we can reach that goal.
OUR HORSES NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE JOIN US FOR THIS CAMPAIGN, TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
