Help us save neglected animals! The Lazarus Rescue Fund has been created to finance the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected animals. We predominantly serve horses, but with the growth of the project, we hope to open our services to as many animals as possible. Just in these past months, our organization has rescued 3 severely abused Chihuahuas. With your support, we can provide medical care and adoption services to all animals in need. Donate today!
