We are always excited to partner with other rescue groups who are working towards the common goal on St Croix of ending pet overpopulation.
Cruzan Cowgirls Horse Rescue, a 501c3 non-profit, is the first of its kind on the big island. As of late spring 2018 they support a herd of over 41 horses rescued across the island.
One of their biggest challenges is keeping new foals from being born. Most male horses on St Croix are stallions and there currently has not been an equine veterinarian on the island for many years.
When Cruzan Cowgirls approached Dr. Stacia Jung about working with them to geld horses (the term for neutering male horses) she was ready to take on the challenge. With assistance from the Cowgirls, Sunshine Foundation has been making farm calls to provide gelding services for the herd.
The eventual goal is to work alongside Cruzan Cowgirls Horse Rescue to provide gelding services to the St Croix horse community.
You can help us with our goals to end horse overpopulation on St Croix by donating to their Horse Rescue Project Fund with Sunshine Foundation.
