CHINO HILLS (CBS) — The Red Bucket Equine Rescue group cut the ribbon Wednesday on a new Chino Hills ranch that 45 abandoned and neglected horses will call home.
The horse rescue center, which was founded three years ago, saved and found homes for more than 120 horses from a half-dozen western states. The horses had been deserted or suffered from malnutrition. In some cases, they were near-death.
The non-profit organization was given short notice to leave its Orange County home, so it used emergency funds to purchase the new ranch.
“We’ve been hoping for a miracle,” said Red Bucket Rescue co-founder Susan Peirce.
Thanks to the group’s latest donor, Pam Bilak, the 5-acre facility is getting a new coat of paint in time for the official grand opening September 9.
