Daisy Christmas 2012

Happy Holidays from The Herd and Team at PAH

2014 has been a year full of smiles for Teens and Horses as teens from the Capital Region enjoyed an empowering summertime experience in PAH’s Teen Buddy Up program.

PAH served 34 teens, many who were referred into the Teen Buddy Up program from local schools and organizations. By the looks on their faces, it was a happy place to be! This spectacular program was partly funded by: The Price Chopper Golub Foundation, Stewarts Shops Holiday Match and NAILBA ~ thank you!

Team PAH is privileged each and every day to see the changes that occur in the horses and youth that we serve. This is made possible through our Program Partnerships, Champion Donors and Feed Partners. Without their support PAH’s programs would not exist.

Peaceful Acres Horses assists NY State Police on Whitehall, NY Cruelty Case

On Friday November 21st Peaceful Acres Horses was notified by a woman that she had pictures and video of horses she believed to be "at-risk" in Whitehall NY.
After reviewing the photos and video I contacted the NY State Police and asked to meet them at the Rte 4 property as soon as possible. On Sunday November 23rd, 2014 Team PAH volunteers and The NY State Police arrived at Charles W. McKinney's property,

I am very proud of our Peaceful Acres Horses Team for effectively and efficiently working to insure the safety and care of the horses associated with Charles W. McKinney. I want to recognize and thank our team and the entire staff of The Battenkill Veterinary Equine Clinic for working together to save lives!
I am posting this so you may see a bit more about the importance of Peaceful Acres Horses and the necessary roll we serve in and around The Capital Region for horses that are at-risk. Had PAH not had the knowledge and ability to step in to help with the NY State Police, other lives would have been lost to a painful death, as was the sad fate of Chocolate (photo above)

I am reaching out to ask you to lend a helping hand as a contributor to the horses' veterinary care. Battenkill Veterinary Equine has literally save 3 lives! Strawberry, Spirit and Rhiannon are still hospitalized and in "guarded condition" Chocolate died as a result of his condition caused from chronic neglect and animal cruelty.

Charles W. McKinney of Rte 4 Whitehall, NY has been charged with animal cruelty
11 Horses have come into the care, custody and control of Peaceful Acres Horses in relation to this animal cruelty case.

Please help us to help them if you are able.
