Our Painted Horse Rescue

Written by 

Horse tumor before surgeryToby came to us by way of a kind hearted neighbor of this paint quarter horse. The man who spotted this horse with a huge sarcoidosis  tumor on his neck did not have the financial means to treat this cancer and the man who possessed it did not care. The animal loving neighbor gave this poor excuse of a man $200 to take the horse so he could find help for it.

 

He quickly loaded up the horse and brought him to our farm at 9:30 pm, on a Sunday night, with the horse dripping blood at an unbelievable life threatening rate ...

We called our vet who came out and removed the sarcoidosis tumor and stitched him up. Treatment began and after three types of cancer treatments failed, it seems as though the fourth worked. The tumors (now about six of them) seemed to go into remission after being cryogenically removed.

 

Toby can now be trail ridden, however due to his unpredictable nature, he often stays home and races through his pastures waiting for his pals to return.

Karrin Campf

President and Sanctuary Director


Karrin's love of animals blossomed at an early age bringing any animal home that she could sneak past her parent's watchful eyes. Cats, kittens, bunnies...lead to dogs and now camels and elk. It was her good luck when she met Rob who had an equal passion for all animals, especially the "underdogs". The two of them have proudly stood side by side for a quarter of a century...dedicated to the animals that mean so much.

Together they have adopted three children from other parts of the world and have enjoyed teaching their children about animals and educating them about their proper care.
