Max will be hosting and I will be performing to benefit Equine Advocates Horse Sponsorship Drive 2011 on Saturday, April 2nd from 4 pm – 7 pm in the gallery at TK Home and Garden (441 Warren St.) in Hudson, New York. The ultimate goal is to acquire sponsors for all 80 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules who reside at Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary in Chatham, NY.
“Horse Sponsorship is our most successful program,” says Equine Advocates President, Susan Wagner. “Sponsors visit the sanctuary whenever they like and play an important role in the life and upkeep of their rescued equine. There are several levels of sponsorship starting for as little as $50 a month. It’s a great program for people who love horses.”

I became involved with Equine Advocates in 2010 when I learned about the rescue of Bobby II Freedom, a former NYC carriage horse. I visited Equine Advocates to meet Bobby who arrived to live out his life away from a punishing life on NYC’s streets and pending slaughter. It made me so happy that a dream home is not only possible for Bobby, but exists at Equine Advocates. Seeing other rescued horses, ponies and donkeys and hearing their stories showed me the importance of Equine Advocates and the amazing level of love and care they receive. I applaud and support their tireless work to save, protect and care for discarded and disrespected equines.
