OXFORD – Faced with escalating day-to-day costs like fuel, hay and grain, a local horse rescue shelter is reaching out to the community for help.
The Destiny Equine Rescue Center, a nonprofit horse rescue located in the Town of Oxford, will host “For the Love of Horses” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 19. This fundraising event will be held at Lilley Farms, 5116 state Highway 41 in Greene. Organizers hope the event will go a long way in helping Destiny Equine maintain its shelter, which currently houses more than 20 equines and other livestock animals in need of rescue, treatment, or retirement.
For the Love of Horses will feature door prizes and raffles throughout the day, a chicken barbecue and a variety of vendors, including Origami Owl and Tastefully Simple, selling handmade jewelry and other artisan crafts. All proceeds will directly benefit Destiny Equine in sustaining its mission.
