This fundraiser is closed

Meet Melody, the Morgan horse who ranks as a Marine Corp sergeant major, E-9.  She serves veterans across the state in the riderless horse tribute program, where the boots of the fallen soldier ride backwards representing their last ride to their final resting place.  Melody, with her Marine Corp Vietnam veteran owner Rick, tirelessly serves veterans across the state in funeral processions.  Now, she needs our help. 

CATALES, INC, local cat rescue, is leading the charge for raising funds for Melody. PLEASE note that all funds raised on behalf of Melody through this campaign will be used only for the immediate needs of Melody, not for CATALES, Inc.
When making a donation online, please add "The Shelter Melody Project" in paypal memo line. 

Please pass this on to family, friends, co-workers, and military and service personnel in your town.  

Melody has served many families.  Let us now serve her.

Melody updated - Permit for the barn has been submitted to the town.  It may take up to 2 weeks to be approved.  Once we have an approval we will set delivery for barn.  At that time we will start ordering supplies and food.  Clean up of the old shelter will happen this weekend and additional land prep work will be needed in the near future.

thank you all for your support!
