Estaban's rescue

By Dannielle Marturana | March 17, 2010

Estaban is a beautiful four – five year old mahogany bay Mustang, possibly a Paso Fino cross as his movement is gaited. He was one of six Mustangs rescued and brought to Luv Shack Ranch Horse Rescue by the Pinal County Animal Care and Control on January 20. His owner was sent to jail for animal cruelty.


Rescues save pets and people but can use our help too

By Marielle D. Marne | March 17, 2010

Nowhere in Arizona will you find a group of people with bigger hearts than in the Desert Foothills. Put out a call for a sick child and neighbors pitch in to help. Someone in an accident? We send food. That selflessness extends to those with paws instead of hands, fur instead of skin. Yes, we love our companion animals! The majority of households in the area have pets, be they horses, dogs, cats or guinea pigs. We do our collective part to help them all!

Then, there are some who go above that and aim for the stars. These are the folks who establish rescues and the volunteers who pitch in to assure they keep running.
