Sept 22

celebrate the horse 2

We are very proud that ABC Channel 10 chose Easy Street Horse Rescue to be one of their “Horse Heroes for 2019.  The horses especially loved the interview and kept trying to be on camera. I guess our volunteers have been taking a lot of selfies with them, as they were jostling to be in front of the camera. I wish I had video of that, but below are several pictures of the interview, along with a link to the news broadcast.

image10image9image14image12We hope you will also donate to the horses of Easy Street Horse Rescue.  We especially are low on funds now and need donations for veterinary fees, farrier visits and HAY.  We need $11,000 for this coming fall and winter hay budget PLUS $1,000 for healthcare (VET/FARRIER). Please donate today.  We need every dollar you can spare.  Please use the DONATE BUTTON to donate via PayPal from our site, or mail your check payable to Easy Street Horse Rescue, 109 Langley Road, Amsterdam NY 12010. All donations are fully deductible to the extent of the law.

We hope you enjoy watching and seeing our current horses, which are all sweet and loveable. Maybe a few of you might even consider volunteering…. we need more volunteers in a multiple of capacities, not just in horse care. We even have stuff you can do from home.  I am always happy to give an orientation (weekends) by appointment. The horses love visitors.  Especially those taking pictures!   BELOW IS THE LINK TO 2019 HORSE HEROES AS BROADCAST. ENJOY!    (if the link does not show a video of Easy Street at first, then click on the link to Easy Street website and then click “Back” – the video should then be shown).

Below is info on the large seizure on March 22, 2012:

 Two mares, Lizzie (white) and her yearling filly (Joy) were seized and brought to safety at Easy Street Horse Rescue in March. Little Joy (as named by volunteers) tried vainly to survive, but after ten days had to be put down humanely after continuing problems of rectal prolapse compounded by undernourishment, dehydration, and parasite infestation.

NY State Trooper Bednarek arrested Carl Vitale on Sunday, April 15 and charged him with 2 felony counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, 15 misdemeanors and 4 violations. The charges came after the March court ordered search and seizures of Mr. Vitale’s farm located at 656 Lynx Street, Sprakers, NY 12166, ended with 15 untamed, sick and malnourished horses taken to safety at Easy Street Horse & Barnyard Rescue, Inc. in Amsterdam NY. Two dozen dedicated volunteers of Easy Street Horse Rescue, along with some very helpful NYS Troopers and folks from Saratoga Equine, spent two days in March out in very mucky pastures and dilapidated barns catching the horses, none of which were even halter trained. A total of seven stallions and eight mares were seized, but a mare and stallion later had to be humanely euthanized after examinations by Dr. Julie Cornell of Saratoga Equine.

 Excelsior (Celsy) is now the greeter at Easy Street Rescue, as he has the run of the barnyard. Visitors quickly fall in love with the little guy whom is extremely underweight and malnourished. It is a very long road to recovery for Celsy, whom still is not out of danger. This sweet little guy is very gentle and loves to be groomed. Celsy’s brother Ulysses had to be humanely put down after an old injury which was painful was diagnosed as only getting worse. Ulysses looked a lot like his younger brother, Celsy, and he was loved by all the volunteers that petted and groomed him after his arrival at Easy Street Horse Rescue. Both Ulysses and Joy went to God’s pastures in heaven after knowing peace and love.

Donations: Donations to help these horses can be made via PayPal Make A Donation button below or mail a check payable to Easy Street Horse Rescue at 109 Langley Road, Amsterdam NY 12010.

We would also love donations of good horse quality hay (round and square) and calf manna supplement.  We also need muck buckets, corral panels (new or used with no broken parts), and a couple stall mats.  All cash and in-kind donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

What we saw…


    VOLUNTEER NOTES:  We need a lot of volunteers to take care of these horses; plus we need other volunteers in areas of fundraising help, event coordinators, adoption coordinators, etc. If you’ve been thinking about helping, then please do it today!

    FOSTER HOMES: We need foster homes once these horses are ready for new homes, which will be soon. Foster homes have the first right to adopt once the court gives us ownership (which we expect to happy, so please let us know if you can help in that manner. Please download the foster app under Forms tab. All foster homes can take full tax deductions of all expenses for the horses. Fostering a horse is the same as donating the money to us. Please spread the word for the need. We are located in Montgomery County NY so the foster home should be in the surrounding area and/or have the ability to come to us to get the horse(s). All horses currently have vaccinations, rabies and coggins. We will not foster a horse that hasn’t been quarantined or vet approved to move.     Donations: Donations to help these horses can be made via PayPal Make A Donation button below or mail a check payable to Easy Street Horse Rescue at 109 Langley Road, Amsterdam NY 12010. We would also love donations of good horse quality hay (round and square) and calf manna supplement and beet pulp (shredded).
