UPDATE 3:18 p.m. (PST) Sheriff Les Mayer said that Karen has until midnight to approve applications. Those will be honored. You have 5 days for pickup.
Please get your applications in! Here is the online application: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdXEVFZhWzY6qKuPr5qAzaQcFF2-s7Ojpx-n1Qqi8zHgYlWjg/viewform
The deadline to get your adoption applications in is 9 PM (EST), 6 PM (PST) today. Right now the adoption fees are waived. There is a possibility ISPMB Mustang adoptions will be extended but right now we encourage you to get your applications in today to guarantee you will save their lives.
It’s urgent to get your applications in today, November 30, 2016 because tomorrow, December 1st, the 2 counties take control and move forward to take the remaining ISPMB Mustangs to be sold at the livestock auction. The counties put a lien on the mustangs to recover their costs for hay and care. According to the Sheriff it costs $50,000. per month to feed the ISPMB Mustangs.
Here’s the new adoption form. Be sure to click on the button to have a copy of your application sent to you: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSdXEVFZhWzY6qKuPr…/viewform
The State Attorney told me that all adoptions approved by Karen Sussman before December 1st will be honored. He said that as of December 1st they will prepare to take them to auction. The attorney said that this is a money issue and that International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB) needs to come up with more money to pay back the county, pay for hay and prove they can sustain themselves for 18 months. Even to get the adoptions extended through January 1st is all about money that the ISPMB needs.
Karen Sussman told me that the ISPMB will be adopting for the 3 weeks.
Please share the adoption application with an appeal to adopt to save lives. Reach out in your community. Call everyone in your contacts. Help people send in their applications today. The clock is ticking. Thank you!
When I get more information I will post it. Please pray for a miracle.
