Feral horse deserves a loving home

I am upset over the treatment of Avalon, the feral horse that Critteraid is refusing to allow Janette Damsa to adopt.

Dear Editor:

I am yet another reader who is upset over the treatment of Avalon, the feral horse that Critteraid is refusing to allow Janette Damsa to adopt.

I love all animals, and it breaks my heart to see how some are forced to live, simply because they were not lucky enough to be born into a loving home.

But here is the story of one feral horse, whose physical needs have been met, when he was taken in by Critteraid.

To hear that someone was willing to spend the time Janette has spent, working with him, and earning his trust, is heartwarming,

And to hear that he has also bonded with Janette’s other horse, completes the picture.

Critteraid holds that horse’s future happiness in their hands. To refuse to allow him to go to a home where he will be loved, where he will have the companionship of another horse he has bonded with, is cruel.

I hope each and every one of the board of directors at Critteraid will look into their own hearts, and will allow this poor horse to have the happiness he deserves.

As the saying goes, “Saving one animal will not change the world. But it will change the world for that one animal.”
