Rest In Peace, Ashton.
Ashton is a 15.2 hand Quarter horse gelding born in 2004.
Ashton came to us in December, 2013 from a law enforcement seizure.
He has a long way to go to regain his weight and health.
Ashton's jaw had been broken and healed incorrectly causing a great deal of swelling.
We tried to correct the damage, but, after a number of veterinary visits and procedures, it became clear that he was suffering and the wound would never fully heal.
Ashton was euthanized on May 20, 2014. We miss him greatly.
2014 ASPCA Staffers' Choice Grant
We gratefully acknowledge the award of the ASPCA Staffers' Choice Grant for General Operating Expenses in Honor of Shelley Jump. The rescue applied this valuable grant money to veterinary costs on Ashton, with the remaining balance going to purchase feed.
