We are forced to close
All right Facebook community, work your magic. A Little Bit of Heaven
has one last chance and it can only happen with your help. We are
facing having to close our doors and shut our organization down. We
are disheartened to make this plea but it is necessary. Due to the
recent slanderous allegations made by individuals who have vowed to
have us shut down, donations have completely ceased and we have no
funds to continue saving these horses. Our Board of Directors has
stretched their personal limits to continue funding our cause but they
are drained of personal revenue. At this point, we face closing and
sending our horses to other sanctuaries unless we can get your help.
You have been with us since our inception 4 years ago. You have seen
horses come and go, completing our purpose of rehabilitating good
horses instead of sending them to slaughter. You have seen the
beautiful and loving horses that have found forever homes with our
help and yours. Please help us continue saving horses. There is a dire
need for a rescue/rehabilitation facility in the North Country.
Hundreds and even thousands of horses go to slaughter every year, good
horses from your own community that deserve a second chance at life.
And they can find that chance at A Little Bit of Heaven but not if we
close our doors.
We have strived every day of our existence to provide as best we could
for the horses we house. We have provided medical care, birthing
assistance, community education classes, emotional and physical
rehabilitation of horses, and so much more all with your help! You
have helped us fulfill our mission: Help us help them. And we have
done this together. But your generous support has declined since these
untrue allegations. The integrity of our Board of Directors and our
organization as a whole has kept us from speaking out against these
people. But we ask that you find it in your heart to see past the lies
and the stories to see the truth. The truth is that we provide an
invaluable service to this community by taking in these unwanted
horses and giving them a second chance at a good life.
We at a Little Bit of Heaven understand being donors as well as
facilitators. Each of those involved in our organization donate their
time and donate financially. We understand what we ask of you. But
even small donations of $5.00 can be life changing for these animals.
If each of our 2,749 followers on facebook donated just $5.00 in one
month A Little Bit of Heaven would pay off all current accrued
balances and still have a profit to use to further help our horses. If
each of you continued that donation for 1 year, your total donations
would be just $60.00 while our total donations would be almost
$165,000! Could you imagine how many horses we could save together
with that? Ask yourself, what do you believe in? What makes you happy
and what is $5.00 worth to you? Please help save A Little Bit of
Heaven and our horses. We are at a last resort just as our equine
charges have been.
