FCER is an all volunteer non-profit group dedicated to the rescue of horses, burros, and mules: their rehabilitation (both physically and mentally), and their adoption into good, loving homes. We will assist wherever, whenever we can, to help horses in need.
Located just outside Aztec, in the Four Corners area of New Mexico,we follow the guidelines for rescues as set forth by the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners). This guide can be viewed by clicking on the Forms icon, then AAEP.
Bambi, Drifter and Thumper are now safe after being secured by FCER. Now they begin rehabilitation in preparation for adoption into good, loving homes. This is a lengthy, expensive process and your help will be greatly appreciated. We estimate spending $1200 in training for EACH horse! Additionally the 2 stallions need castration and all need a good vet evaluation.
McKinley was first spotted by a lady driving along the highway. She was lying down off the roadside with no mother in sight. When this same lady returned the next day, McKinley was still there. Thanks go out to this Good Samaritan who called the ladies at Shiprock Animal Control. ACO Stacey traveled out to find McKinley indeed without a mother and apparently that way for 2 days. Stacey called FCER to see if we could help. The next morning we were on the road to pick up McKinley (she is named for the areas where she was found near the San Juan and McKinley county line). Our first stop for McKinley was at Animal Haven Clinic in Farmington. There she was examined, fed, given IV"S and pronounced healthy enough to go to the rescue. Now the volunteers will be called upon for help feeding and caring for McKinley. And then there is the money. McKinley requires feeding every 3-4 hours. The formula costs $78 a bucket (estimated to last 10 days - less as she grows). If you can help save McKinley please donate through the PayPal button just below this writing.
