The Brandywine Horse Shows has selected the USHJA Foundation's Horseman's Assistance Fund and Danny & Ron’s Rescue as the beneficiaries of the 2017 Summer Series.
The USHJA Foundation’s Horseman’s Assistance Fund has been established to provide emergency financial support to individuals, horses, or organizations that require assistance as a result of illness, injury and/or are otherwise incapacitated due to a catastrophic accident or natural disaster.
Danny & Ron’s Rescue speaks for helpless animals that have no voice. They began their rescue mission in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina by aiding dogs that were left homeless by the storm. Since then, their outreach has grown. Donny & Ron's Rescue is now rescuing puppy mill dogs, bait dogs used in dog-fighting, and hundreds of dogs from shelters—often moments away from euthanasia. They currently deliver pet food and supplies to more than 48 elderly people living in poverty—and pay for their dogs’ medical bills, too. They have rescued dogs from junkyards and shelters, freed animals chained to trees and living in small cages, and saved abandoned pets living on the streets.
