HARRISON COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A shelter was on the verge of auctioning off everything and shutting down, but a local non-profit horse rescue organization said thanks to the community they can remain open, for now.
Buck Creek Valley Rescue in Elizabeth, Indiana takes care of abused horses along with working with prosecutors and police in cases involving neglected animals.
The group posted a message Sunday night on their Facebook page stating;
"I know a lot of you have been wondering what is going on with the rescue. We were able to stop the sale for now. Hopefully all works out for the rescue. We appreciate your kind words and support you have all given to the rescue. Thank you so much. Please note we are always looking and accepting volunteers for the rescue. There is always something to be done and we would love to have you come out. Don't forget Beef O Brady's day is tomorrow in Corydon Indiana. 10% of your bill will go to Buck Creek Valley Rescue. Please come support our rescue and enjoy good food too. THANK YOU..."
The fundraiser for the group will be held at Beef O' Brady's in Corydon, Indiana on March 25. Ten percent of food purchases will be donated to the shelter.
