Hey Fox Fam, last week we celebrated National Horse Day here at Arctic Fox!
In honor of National Horse Day, we donated $50,000 to Viva Global Rescue to assist with their mission of providing professional rescue, rehabilitation, and sanctuary to horses and animals in need. This rescue is very close to our hearts, you may recognize them from our donation of a horse trailer with our Founder, Kristen Leanne last June. You can read more about our previous work with the rescue here.
Viva Global Rescue was founded by Maya Benperlas & Kalli Quigg in Los Angeles. In the last year and a half, they have rescued over 1,100 animals in need. In addition to rescuing animals from slaughter, abuse, and neglect, they work with disaster response teams in the Southern California fires to provide a comprehensive network and system of dispatchers, volunteers, trucks, and trailers to get hundreds and thousands of animals to safety.
Like many rescues and sanctuaries worldwide, Viva global rescue has faced an increased demand with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. With this donation, we will be sponsoring the care of four horses in their sanctuary for one year as well as bringing in two additional horses. This includes high quality food, supplements, bedding, medical care and any other financial needs! Meet the horses we are sponsoring:
We will also be partnering with Viva to build a chicken paradise! This includes chicken coops, a chicken quarantine area, a large fully enclosed predator proof run, and an enrichment area. These chickens will be living the life!
We are so thankful for the support of our #FoxFam who help make donations like this possible. With your help we have been able to make an extraordinary impact on the lives of the animals at Viva. Make sure you follow us on our social media for updates on the sponsored animals as well as a few other exciting donations we have in the works for 2021!
