UPDATE 2: FULLY FUNDED!
A great big thank you goes out to our wonderful sponsors. We have reached our goal and are on track to get these boys taken care of. We can express how grateful we are.
UPDATE: DIESEL IS CRYPTORCHID TOO!
Our sweet little boy, Beau, needs surgery
He is what is called “cryptorchid,” meaning he as one undescended testicle. While this currently does not cause him any discomfort, he is at a high risk of having his retained teste develop cancerous tumors, so we would like to have him castrated. Unfortunately, castration of a cryptorchid is more expensive than a typical castration. Additionally, as a sanctuary, we will not adopt out a stallion, so Beau needs to be castrated. As such, we are asking for your support.
The cost of the castration is approximately $2,000 at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital.
We’ve updated the goal with the remaining funds needed for both Beau and Diesel.
Thank you all for your wonderful support!
