Two horses rescued from Texas kill pen

Hunkapi equine therapy needs support for horses

Posted

On Wednesday, Sept. 28, Hunkapi Programs Executive Director Terra Schaad and her team of therapists rescued two horses from a kill pen in Texas and now need community support to welcome them to the 10-acre property in Scottsdale.

Each horse was shipped to Arizona and now needs vet care, immunizations, feed, shoes and more, totaling almost $7,000 per animal. Once the horses are safe and settled, they will begin training to become four-legged therapists at Hunkapi, which specializes in equine therapy for clients with a broad spectrum of diagnoses including ALS, PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADHD and more.

Horse #8177 is an 18-year-old draft mare and sweet mama who has been used for breeding the last several years, hasn’t been given proper nutrition and is underweight. She’s quiet, kind, gentle and is ready for a loving retirement at Hunkapi.

Horse #8143 is a 16-year-old bay gelding that is also quiet and easy going. He’s ready for his retirement and for a great deal of healing.
