Laughing Pony Rescue Honors Veterans with Special 4th of July Campaign
In honor of Independence Day, most Americans will be celebrating with barbecues, parades, music, American flags and firecrackers. But if you are at Laughing Pony Rescue, you will be celebrating by trying to raise money for a new shelter and grooming tack stall for the newest member of the family, a very special military donkey named Dynamite. Laughing Pony Rescue (pictured here with just a few of our military relatives who are also volunteers) has partnered with WonderWe, a free fundraising platform to help raise $7000 for the new stall for Dynamite. Both WonderWe and Laughing Pony Rescue are excited for the collaboration to raise funds and awareness for our veterans and Dynamite.
Dynamite served in the US Military at Fort Irwin, California where he was used to transport dynamite into places the military jeeps and cars could not go. Dynamite completed his service in the military honorably and now it is time for him to retire. Because of Dynamite’s sweet nature he is going to be our lead “equine” in our new Veteran’s Therapeutic Grooming Program. This program will provide our military veterans with a chance to learn about proper ground techniques and grooming, as well as connect with rescue horses and donkeys here at Laughing Pony Rescue. Dynamite will remain our ambassador until he is lovingly adopted into his forever home.
Dynamite came to the ranch in terrific health, was well trained and overall a happy donkey. Although Dynamite has had an easy transition to Laughing Pony Rescue, unfortunately most stories don’t go as smoothly. Laughing Pony Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of unwanted and abused horses of all breeds. Visit WonderWe to make a donation to support Dynamite. Laughing Pony Rescue supports all military veterans both animal and human and wishes everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July.
