A voice for the voiceless

A voice for the voiceless

Tommie has been at Equine Voices for two months and recovering well.

She was a starvation case. She stood day in and day out in a pen, without food and little water while her owner drove past her each day ignoring the fact that this precious animal needed to be fed.

Tommie, like so many others, is a victim of neglect.

Fortunately, a neighbor contacted Equine Voices asking for help. They convinced the owner to release her to us. When we picked her up, it took over two hours to load her in the trailer, but once she knew we wanted to bring her home she jumped right in.

Monthly operating expenses are averaging $25,000.

Because of the economy, donations are at their all time low and their expenses are at their all time high.

Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary is a 501 c3 organization located in Southern Arizona. Equine Voices rescues Premarin (PMU) mares and foals from slaughter as well as working to end the senseless slaughter of horses for overseas markets where horse meat is considered a delicacy. At Equine Voices horses are nursed back to health, some are adopted or some live the rest of their lives at this beautiful sanctuary where they are well cared for by many volunteers.

Please consider making a donation to Equine Voices directly or buying a bracelet or three. It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday gifts as retails stores already are displaying decorations.

Bracelets are one of a kind made with donated beads. They only cost $20 and are talk of the town. Every bracelet comes with a paw charm to commemorate what the Beading Divas to the Rescue do — raise much needed funds for animal charities.

Please consider buying a bracelet online or at any of these local venues:

–Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954
–Clues Unlimited Mystery Book Store, 3146 E. Fort. Lowell Road (SE corner Country Club), 326-8533 (closed Sun/Mon)

Wrist candy for Heart of Tucson horse rescue

HEART of Tucson horse rescue has so far  done a marvelous job  promoting the Beading Diva bracelet sales on their Facebook page.  On the first day of March, 11 bracelets were sold!

They were at the Arizona Animal Fair with their rescued mini horses which proved to be very popular with the crowd.

You can read about their many horse rescues here.

One particular former racehorse named “Gifted” has a sad story (not unlike racing greyhounds) but luckily has found his way to HEART of Tucson and is on the road to hopeful recovery. You can read the story about Gifted here.

One of a kind bracelets are available online (add $3 S&H) via Etsy.com.

You can also purchase them from Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave., 520-624-9954 OR Dirty Dawgs dog wash, 2510 N. Campbell Ave., 520-777-6045.  Every bracelet is handcrafted from beautiful beads which have been given to Beading Divas to the Rescue from our latest Bead Drive as we raise money for numerous  animal charities. Bracelets cost $20/each and no two bracelets are alike. Not only do you get an original piece of jewelry but it’s meaningful too.

You can read about our donation history here.
