The racehorse breeding industry is fiercely competitive. Breeders force mares to give birth to as many foals as possible, but their only goal is to obtain valuable milk from nursing mothers in order to raise competent thoroughbreds for racing, writes ilovemydogsomuch.
Victoria Goss, founder of Last Chance Corral, comes to their aid as unwanted foals are dumped and left to die. She cares for these newborns and assists them in surviving without their mother. She has achieved a much lower mortality rate of young foals than the industry average thanks to her tireless efforts.
Victoria has been rescuing horses since she was 12 years old. Her heart breaks for these abandoned foals, but financial constraints prevent her from hiring a competitive staff. She relies on volunteers when they are available, but she mostly runs the sanctuary on her own.
Unfortunately, the assistance available to these foals is completely disproportional to the massive number of horses being bred and dumped. Because of her limited resources, she has to turn away many foals every day, which breaks her heart. Our hearts have been touched by Victoria’s selfless mission. You can donate to the mission or adopt a horse by going to Last Chance Corral’s Facebook page.
