Following a horrific case of animal cruelty in Susanville, Grace rescued A LOT of horses from the Whispering Pines Ranch. Although the owner of the ranch has been charged with 70 felony counts of animal cruelty, this doesn't end the struggle that these animals face. The cost of caring for this many animals is outrageous and has absolutely crippled the Grace Foundation. If you want to read just how much of a struggle rehabilitating these horses has been, visit www.thegracefoundation.com/susanville.
The volunteers at Grace don't want to see this be the end of the organization and are doing all they can to help raise funds. This weekend there will be a yard sale to benefit Grace with ALL PROCEEDS going straight to the organization. So if you're in the Sacramento/El Dorado Hills area - please come out and see what kinds of treasures you can find. The yard sale will be this Saturday, September 29 from 8am to 3pm at 1066 St. Andrews Drive, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762. And if you can't make it out and would still like to help, please visit http://www.thegracefoundation.com/donate to make a donation.

Ok really, I'm sure she'd like to eat him based on how she watches him, but because she can't, I'll pretend they're friends.

Since she first came home with us Ora has been difficult to please in the food department. If it's cheap and processed she's all over it, if it's somewhat healthy she'll take a bite to be polite and then move on. I've finally managed to get her on a good quality food - but treats were still giving me trouble. No matter what I brought home, nothing compared with the 50 cent bag of cheap-o treats. A few weeks back we got the new Greenie's Smart Bites. When I saw the package and realized they were similar in size and texture to the cheapy ones Ora loves, I may have let out a small squeal of excitement. FINALLY! A treat I could feel better about giving her!
With Ora's dental problems, I've tried to get her to enjoy the other types of Greenie's treats, but it wasn't really easy. I learned that if I mixed them in with her cheap treats she would eat them, but never just on their own. So I was anxious to see if she would love these like she loves her little kitty junk food. It didn't take Ora long to decide that she loves her new Greenie's. I tried to get a good picture of her enjoying the treats, but she was too fast. No sooner had I put them out she gobbled them up and was waiting for more.
I'm so excited to let her try all the flavors and finally have treats for Ora that she loves and I don't mind giving her!

Once he was taken in, Obie topped the scales at 77 pounds. Luckily, when he was given an examination by a vet, his blood work all came back normal. So despite his morbid obesity, Obie is a somewhat healthy guy. Obie's foster mom, Nora, has him on a special diet and with time plans to get him involved in swim and treadmill therapy. If you would like to help Nora with the costs of getting Obie healthy, please consider making a donation.
