Clydesdales help Purina deliver surprise to horse shelter in need

August 29, 2019


Finding homes for horses can be tricky sometimes so at Far View Horse Rescue we work together with the horse and the volunteers to get that horse to a level where an adoption is possible. Our focus is to help horses heal from whatever problems they’ve had in the past and then have them adopted out into homes that are appropriate for that particular animal. And our biggest goal is to find a forever home for every horse. At Purina, it’s a no-brainer for us to be the title sponsor for a home for every horse. Shelters like Far View you have a lot of challenges in terms of what these horses need when they arrive and to take feet out of the equation and make sure they have high-quality premium feed that allows them to really get the animals back on the right track, fits with our belief that all horses deserve their forever home. But it really is all the volunteers that come to these shelters and really work with the horses, that make the biggest difference. We don’t have a single paid volunteer or board member or director. Nobody gets paid here; so we’re all doing it out of the passion of our hearts toward these animals. We get about two calls a week and would love to rescue all the horses we get calls about, but that is impossible so we we do our best. We write grants to pay for the feed, but we are in a position where we’re facing winter, a very harsh one we understand coming up, and we have exhausted our food budget – we really have. The volunteers here think that we’re here to thank them and show our appreciation for all their hard work and dedication. Which is true, but what they don’t know is that were also here to surprise them with the delivery of two tons of feed for the horses. We have some special celebrity guests. Thank you so much for being here today on behalf of Purina we are so grateful for all the work that you do here to help rescue horses achieve the greatest potential. And as you know this time of year is a time for surprises. Today we’ve got a great surprise for two tons of feed is about to be delivered by eight celebrity horses. For a group of people who like horses this was pretty much the best surprise you could give us. Every aged person out there lit up with excitement at seeing these clysdales coming towards us and behind it is a truck with 4,000 pounds of donated Purina Strategy Senior Care for us. That’s like so much grain. I’ve never seen that much green. Such an amazing, amazing donation, it means we can take on more rescues and hopefully find good homes for them, and it’s just an unbelievable, unbelievable day. It’s an incredible gift. We are truly thankful, pretty choked up. Thank you. The fact that anybody cares what we’re doing, is just really really valuable.

  9. didnt know horse need rescuing, the most valuable animal on the planet. I want one, what’s the requirement to adopt a horse or horses?

  10. Budweiser, you made me cry again. You too Purina. My heart swelled with happiness. Thank you for caring about those loving people.

  11. "Its an incredible gift, we are truly thankful. Thank you."
    "Pretty choked up!"
    "The fact that anybody cares what we are doing, is just really really valuable."
    I love these people!!

  12. This is NOT a Purina commercial. But I've been feeding Purina Dog Chow for ages. They're doing something right, because my two 13 year old littermates, BIG dogs have never had a sick day. Their coats are shiny and thick. Although big girls they haven't suffered the hip problems many big dogs do. I dunno, maybe luck. But I won't ever buy another brand of dog food. Supporting critter "rescues" just adds icing to the cake. Thumbs up to Far View also. We appreciate you.

  13. Brought me to tears………….happy tears!! ❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️

  15. Thank you so much Purina!!! And what a great way to "deliver" it!!! I am so glad there are people out there that care so much for our animal "brothers". Much love and Light!!

  16. This would make a Super Budweiser Ad, maybe you have to edit, but the story is a tear jerker and not too long from now is the Super Bowl!!

  17. Gracious. Love what these great people are doing. Love the Clydesdales and have since I was a very little boy (I am now 71). Much thanks to Purina. And last … I sure wish I was young enough and able to be out there helping …

  18. This never,ever gets old. What magnificent horses, bringing magnificent food, to magnificent volunteers. I have to pay HUGE homage to Budweiser for doing this unbelievably incredible act. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  19. Lovely to here that there are places like that for horses to be rescued – hope great things like the above continue to happen for them when in such need.thanks for showing us.

  20. This was a beautiful thing for Purina to do. ….I'm only sorry that Purina Senior is such an awful food for horses. I used to have mine on them. Because of that food, all of them foundered. Still, this was ten years ago. Maybe Purina has fixed its formula since then.

  21. Oh wow,with tears running down my face,thank you purina,budweiser and all the wonderful volunteers who rescue these amazing animals. The clydesdales were the topping on the cake. Brilliant

  22. I think this is a really great gift, however, is the grain non-gmo? If it is GMO then you are poisoning the animals the same way humans are being poisoned with GMO products. These products are KNOWN to reduce reproduction in humans. I can't help but worry for the animals that are also being poisoned.
