Redemption Road Rescue invites the public to an open house after new additions
JACKSON, Tennessee – A local rescue nonprofit welcomes two new additions.
Redemption Road Rescue welcomed two foals to their stables.
The rescue takes care of horses in need of a good home, and volunteer Patti Simpson says the horses they recently received had an unexpected surprise.
“We don’t always know when they come to us that they’re pregnant,” Simpson said. “We do not allow reproduction. The situation they were in, in fact, these two dams were in hoarding situations where they just let the stallions roam with the mares.
And now the rescue has the two foals: Lucky Buckets and Nugget.
The rescue is organizing an open house on Saturday June 5 for the public to come and see the horses.
However, Simpson and volunteer Herb Williams say the event is also a celebration.
“This is the only time the public can come out and take a look at the rescues firsthand. We’re going to serve hot dogs, hamburgers, ”Williams said.
“Our volunteers make cupcakes for sale,” Simpson added. “But it will be a celebration for the birth of our two baby horses.”
The Open House is one of Redemption Road’s fundraisers, helping to raise funds for the 41 horses they currently care for.
And since the rescue is a non-profit, Williams says they are creating these events to make sure the horses stay healthy and ultimately find a home forever.
“Controlling a horse is much more expensive than controlling a dog or a cat, and when you have a lot of horses like we have here, it takes a lot of money to take care of them”, Williams said.
Simpson says that since the rescue typically doesn’t open to the public for events, it’s a great opportunity for Redemption Road to show people what they’re doing.
“We love that people see what we’re doing,” Simpson said. “This year we’re really trying to empower people to learn what we’re doing.”
The open house is scheduled for June 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
