Metchosin Equestrian Society
Metchosin Equestrian Society (MES) hosted a
Ride for BCSPCA Horse Care
Sunday, August 7th, 2016
Contact: Bev Bacon, email@example.com or 250 474-7202
This year's ride is to support the work that BCSPCA is doing with horses. They now have two large-animal facilities, one in Surrey and one in Kelowna. Horses are returned to health and good condition before being re-homed. The cost is about $20 a day to have a horse in care.
Last year MES started with the modest proposal of “Let’s organize a trail ride on local trails that people don’t usually access and ask the riders to make a donation to BCSPCA specifically for the care or horses.”
Horses seized during cruelty investigations:
Rough Estimate for Average Cost of Care / Horse:
$3000 / horse (includes care, feed, vet/farrier care, medications, hauling, deworming, etc.)
The majority of horses that come into our care are emaciated and compromised as all of our horses come into our care through cruelty investigation warrants. These horses require the support of our staff, volunteers, veterinarians, nutritionists, and other professionals, and require a weight gain diet and supplements which can be very costly (along with vet bills).
