Commend Shelter for Care of Starving Horses

Starving Horse - SaddleSoar Wikispaces

Target: Patricia Muncy, Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue

Goal: Thank rescue shelter for their amazing work and raise awareness for this great organization

Almost 2 million Americans own and care for over 6 million horses, but not all of those owners will care for their horses properly. As hay prices and the unemployment rate increase, horses are paying the price through increased neglect from their owners. Fortunately, there are people out there who are willing to help. Thank Patricia Muncy for the work her horse rescue does caring for starving, neglected horses, and raise awareness for this great organization.

The Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue is a not for profit group, established in 2002, dedicated to the prevention of equine abuse. They provide shelter, food, daily care, medical treatment, rehabilitation, and adoption services for abandoned and neglected horses. They also help horse owners find new forever homes for their horses to prevent neglect or abuse if an owner can no longer care for them.

Recently the shelter took in three new horses along with four pot-bellied pigs and three dogs that were being neglected on a small farm in Pembroke, Virginia. All of the animals were starving, with ribs and hips protruding. Earlier in the month they had taken in two other horses in similar condition. All of the animals are now receiving medical care, food, shelter, and love from this organization. As they recover they will be adopted to forever homes and the organize will monitor them for the rest of their lives to ensure that they are well cared for.

If it wasn’t for the work of this amazing rescue shelter, these animals might not have survived. Thank Patricia, and the Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue, for everything they do to help and protect animals, and sign the petition to raise awareness of this great organization.


Dear Ms. Muncy,

I wish to thank you for the great work you do caring for and rehabilitating neglected horses, and I heard you recently added pot-bellied pigs and a few dogs to your rescue family! If it wasn’t for the work done by your organization, many of these animals may not have survived. What you do is vital, especially as the cold winter months set in, and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate that there are people like you in the world.

Thank you for all of the hard work you do every day to care for these amazing animals.

  1. I admire rescuers so much, imagine what the world would be like without you.

    most people have no knowledge of what it requires to rescue animals. it is your money, time and energy. it is deciding where to keep the creatures when one may not have a place waiting. therefore, any person who sees our fellow creatures in distress and makes the decision to ‘take it in’ is always to be commended.

  3. Thank you Rescue Groups for rescuing these fine animals. Glad you spoke up and stood up for them. We certainly do not need any more animal abuse or violence. We have too much of that now.

  4. Thank you animals shelters so much for your devotion, compassion and care for animals. The owner of these animals will hopefully be lawfully punished.

  5. 98% of the time tears run down my face when signing these petitions and my heart is aching because I feel so helpless and yet so enraged I would kill out of that rage if the abuser(s) stood before me … without remorse … without guilt … so nice to read something kind … the tears at least are those this time of relief … of joy

  6. Thank God that there are rescues in this world, for where would the hope and saving come from if we did not? God bless you each and everyone of you. There is a special place in heaven for those that rescue.
