Blaze's Tribute Equine Rescue was established in early 2001. We named our rescue on behalf of one of our horses, Blaze. That summer we were residing in Guthrie, Oklahoma, when a large fire spread very quickly throughout Guthrie. We had to evacuate, but not without our precious horses. As we were leaving ,we crossed a wooden bridge and the floor of the horse trailer fell through underneath Blaze. Unfortunately, her hind legs were injured pretty badly. We tried to get her veterinary assistance, but upon examining her legs, they all stated that we needed to find another horse. We weren't giving up on her that easily. After much searching we located a vet that was willing to give her a chance. A chance that she deserved. After a month of rehabilitation following surgery and keeping it easy on her legs, she made a full recovery. Blaze only has minor scars on her legs today. Little did we know that was only the beginning of our rescue attempts.
Blaze's Tribute Equine Rescue depends upon the heart felt generosity of others to accomplish our goals. Not only do we depend on you – our horses do as well. Caring for a rescued horse requires substantial yearly costs. Many rescues require specific dietary needs, extensive hoof care treatments, X-rays of injuries, geldings and at the minimum a complete dose of yearly shots including West Nile and routine wormings. To meet these needs we accept both Cash donations and item donations consisting of hay, grain, or any supplies directed to Horse Care. All donations are tax deductible.
