Elaine Nash received a call in October of 2016 that would forever change the way she saw horses. She learned that there were about 270 horses that were about to be neglected and needed homes. She is an executive director of Fleet of Angels – a non-profit that connects horse adopters with affordable transporters, so she was equipped to handle situations like this. She knew that if she did not get involved that these 270 horses plus many many more would end up in the slaughter house. She could not stand by as “kill buyers” tried to get these horses. With the help of the Humane Society and her organization they were able to raise enough funds to pay off the lien on the horses! She now had to find homes for 907 horses!!!
