Lost and Found Horse Rescue Foundation, Inc.
UPDATE 9/25/14: Lost and Found Horse Rescue would like to welcome our new manager, Bethany Serafin. Bethany will be caring for and training our horses and donkeys while organizing adoptions in an effort to downsize the rescue.
Bethany comes to us from Colorado where she began working with horses and riding at a young age. While taking jumping lessons in high school, she decided that her love and passion for horses was something that she wanted to make into a career. This led her to Colorado State University where she graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Equine Science and minor in Business Administration. Bethany has had the opportunity to work as barn manager at two equine hunter/jumper facilities and traveled abroad as a polo groom. She has extensive knowledge handling, training, and caring for equines and will provide exceptional care for all of our animals.
Please direct any questions and inquires to Bethany at LostandFoundMaryland@gmail.com or 240-469-9521.
UPDATE 8/4/2014: Thirty years ago Cleveland Armory at the Fund for Animals asked if we would become the Fund's 17th adoption center. We received 200 donkeys from Death Valley and Crystal Lake. As the years went on, we began getting in horses and mules from race tracks, court decisions, livestock auctions, and individuals.
For the last four years, Maria Anselmo and her assistant, Anna Jacobs, have done splendid jobs of rehabilitation, training, and finding homes, all accomplished with great care and compassion, and with skill to matching horse to rider to family. Gary Young, our farm manager, and Sergio Galdamez have both supported, directed, and advised Lost & Found Horse Rescue. We have been blessed with Dr. Javier Donatelli, our veterinarian; Dave Phillips, our blacksmith; Raymond Hyde, our dentist; and the scores of volunteers and friends who have worked long hours with the horses and donkeys. We have appreciated every minute of it.
Now we come to the point where unfortunately we can no longer support Lost & Found, and we are reluctantly compelled to wind down the population, especially the horses, as they have consumed the greatest percentage of our funds. We are going back to our roots with a dozen or so donkeys populating the pastures under the watchful eyes of Gary, Sergio, and Dr. Ashley Young, who lives on the farm.
We thank you for all your help over the years, and we want you to be assured that any of the wonderful animals on this farm will ALWAYS be well taken care of, as they have been for the past three decades.
