Horses are starving. The Southwest has been hit hard with a deadly drought and countless families are struggling to feed their horses. The situation is heartbreaking. It is dire. People are running out of options, and they need our help fast.

Horse rescuer Debbie Coburn's heart sank when she read a local farmer's sign: Hay Sold Out. "I thought, 'Oh God, no.' I really depend on him." This year hay prices are five times higher, with most of the increase occurring over the past 12 months. Worse yet, in many places there is no hay left. No food at all.

And the situation is only getting worse. "The horses are already bones," Coburn says. "I just don't know what will happen if we don't get help."

This plea is urgent. Please help us save horses from starvation. Every single penny you give to this campaign will go straight to providing food for hungry horses. This is an emergency, and we need your support. We can't let them starve.

"Giving up is not an option," Coburn says. "If we do that, they will die."
