Rescue Network Database
There’s a whole page about this over on the Fugly Blog so for now I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
We’re looking to work with rescues across North America (well, we’re not limiting it, but it seems a little presumptuous to start off with a global goal!) to create a network of contacts that are available to provide information, answers, recommendations to people who have witnessed abuse and/or neglect and aren’t sure what to do about it. We all know there are places and instances where the authorities aren’t always able or willing to step in and help. In those cases we want people to be able to contact us with the details of their situation and we’ll forward that on to someone on the database. From there, it’s up to the rescue person whether they contact the individual directly or send a response to us to forward on.
You’re contact information will be kept confidential. For now, until we get a secure online set-up happening (and a leeetle more sophistamacated development-wise) we’re keeping everyone’s contact details on an excel spreadsheet. If we forward you a question and you don’t feel like you’re the best to respond, just let us know and we’ll try someone else. Our goal is to create a supportive community whose paramount objective is the health and welfare of the horses.
If you have any questions or would like to submit your contact info to be a part of the database, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you don’t feel you can contribute to the database at this time, please take a minute to share this amongst your horsey contacts! 🙂
