PAT NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!
Big Pat was surrendered to The Large Animal Protection Society, Inc when he was deemed unfit for sale due to bilateral blindness. Pat is a 14 year old Draft horse who bears the scars of long hours in harness and very hard work. His body is riddled with reminders how difficult it can be on a work horse then when blindness set in he was dumped at an auction to squeeze the last few dollars out of his battered body knowing full well he would likely go for slaughter. Thankfully the auction house prohibits debilitated animals from being sold so we were contacted to take Big Pat. Everyone who has come in contact with this gentle giant is in awe at his sweet and trusting nature and his ability to compensate for his disability, even all the veterinarians, nurses, techs, and specialists at New Bolton Center for Large Animals have been touched by Pat and are eager to help restore sight to the eye with the least trauma. Your contribution will go a long way to giving Big Pat the second chance at a life he has certainly earned. The Large Animal Protection Society is an animal cruelty policing organization relying solely on the generosity of folks like you. We thank you. Pat thanks you.
