Thanks for helping rescued horses on Whidbey | Letters


Whidbey Island Farm Animal Assistance Program recently provided assistance for a North Whidbey family who had fallen on some hard times and were unable to provide proper care for their four horses.

WIFAAP team of volunteers came together and improved the horses’ living conditions by donating hay, grains that were purchased and repairs for their fencing.

The horses also received veterinary services including trimming of their hooves.

Two of the four horses were surrendered and are currently in foster care for rehabilitation and training.

These goals of our organization can only be met through the generous donations of time and resources of our volunteers.

It is with pride and gratitude that we publicly thank our volunteers for this successful rescue.

Thank you for your assistance: Engle Farms, Bobby Engle (hay); Sherman Farms, Don Sherman (hay); Chuck Kelso (fencing/hay); Ray Sullivan (hay); Dylan Dahl (hay; Lonnie Emery (Farrier); Kim Knott, Wendy Thorne, Kelli Short, Hailey Maier, Heather Roderick, Dr. Robert Moody (DVM) and Skagit Farmers Supply for discounted prices.

WIFAAP is in need of and accepting hay donations on a continuing basis.  Anyone wishing to contribute please contact Carol Barnes at 360-240-5542.

As with any organization financial assistance is always needed and appreciated, pending our nonprofit status.

We are currently not tax exempt. Cash donations may be mailed to WIFAAP, PO Box 402, Coupeville, WA 98239.

Pamela Price, President
