Animal rescue group plans hay drive, fundraiser

Stockyards Championship Rodeo and Argyle-based Ranch Hand Rescue announced a second Hay Drive to benefit the non-profit farm animal rescue group.

The Hay Drive will be held this Friday, November 18, at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards and will feature a special guest appearance by 5 Time Emmy Winner Actress Doris Roberts.

Stockyards Championship Rodeo begins at 8 pm this Friday the 18th and a portion of rodeo ticket sales will go to benefit the Hay Drive effort for Ranch Hand Rescue. Volunteers will be passing “feed” buckets around the audience during the performance to gather additional monetary donations. 

Hay donations will be accepted all day this Friday and Saturday at Cowtown Coliseum by Ranch Hand Rescue.

“An intimate Evening with 5 Time Emmy Winner Doris Roberts” will be held at BillyBobs Texas on Saturday, November 19. This special event will raise money to cover current operating costs which have been strained due to the excessive amounts of critical care horses received by Ranch Hand Rescue.

In addition, Ranch Hand Rescue needs to purchase a custom trailer for Midnite, a neglected miniature horse who found a new life and a new prosthetic leg at Ranch Hand Rescue.  He is called Ranch Hand Rescue’s “Horse of Hope” and is a wonderful inspiration and source of hope to Children’s & Veterans Hospitals around Texas & surrounding areas. Midnite has become an international celebrity and his story has been featured around the world in various media outlets.

Ranch Hand Rescue is the number one source in North Texas for humane organizations and animal control law enforcement to depend on to care for these forgotten critical care horses. Ranch Hand Rescue fosters, houses, feeds, and medically cares for ranch animals in distressed situations.

Using a farm location and other established rescue organizations, they offer a loving and caring home for the animals. Ranch Hand Rescue was founded as a result of the growing need to save farm animals from neglect and starvation. The sanctuary is physically located in Argyle and serves surrounding communities and all of North Texas.
