Providing Help and Hope to Animals in Need...
Following the brutal torture of a horse named Northstar, the Northstar Equine Foundation was formed to provide financial and physical assistance to critically abused, neglected and/or injured animals and to become a catalyst to strengthen the animal cruelty laws in Pennsylvania.  We are a volunteer run organization and donations to our organization are tax-deductible, ID #46-0876636.

Bella is a 2 year old Quarter/Thoroughbred cross filly that was burned during a wildfire near Guthrie OK.  Her owners lost virtually everything in the fire (their home and all structures) but Bella managed to survive.  She sustained burns to her head, neck, body and legs - some of her head injuries resulted from trying to smash her way out of her enclosure!  Bella wants to LIVE!

Bella is currently stabled at Horse Feathers Equine Rescue and Sanctuary in OK, where she receives multiple daily treatments for her wounds.  As we know from other equine burn victims, the cost of caring for and recuperating these poor souls can cost prohibitive.  Medications, topical treatment, veterinary care, high fat/calorie feed and providing a sterile environment often prove too much for the average owner, and many burn victims are euthanized despite having a good prognosis.

Luckily, Bella's costs are remarkably low.  Her vet has deeply discounted her bills and her caregivers donate their time.  Even so, she needs about another $2000 to fully recover.  If you can help us help Bella and her owners with a tax deductible donation, please visit her paypal account.

Bella wants to live.  Let's make that happen!!
