Argyle-based Ranch Hand Rescue CEO Bob Williams (center), Manager of Grants and Fundraising Nan Flaten and Midnite accept a $10,000 grant from CoServ Charitable (CCF) Foundation Executive Director Dennis Engelke.
Midnite, a miniature horse rehabilitated with a prosthetic leg, helps abused children all over Texas meet the challenges of their own healing.
Ranch Hand Rescue works in cooperation with Texas law enforcement officials to rescue abused and neglected farm animals and to prosecute the offenders. The funds from will pay for the animals’ medical costs.
Once the animals are rehabilitated, they are put to work helping troubled children through Equine Assisted Therapy, which provides a way for survivors of abuse or addiction to address and face their own challenges.
“They work with the horse to rehabilitate the animal and in the process heal themselves,” said Ranch Hand Rescue’s Chief Executive Officer, Bob Williams. “It’s been tremendous.”
