Horse rescue receives $4,000 grant for rehab work

— “They are doing good work their for their horses and this grant will help guarantee a safe place for the animals to live,” Shultz said.

In May of 2002, Nancy Van Weie and Eddie Mrozik started CMVHR. They have worked tirelessly ever since to provide a safe and comfortable place for every horse they take in.

Ninety-four percent of all donations to the rescue go directly to the care of horses and 6 percent goes to administration fees. The rescue is operated 100 percent on volunteer work. Mrozik manages the farm as a full-time volunteer. Van Weie dedicates as many as 40 hours per week to rescue efforts, and works full time at the Adirondack Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and The Adirondack Land Trust.

Van Weie said the financial support the ASPCA has given to the rescue is a great relief to helping the rescue continue to care for their 12 horses.

“We couldn’t thank them enough. The aid will ensure each of our horses have a comfortable place to live,” Van Weie said.

Anyone interested in donating to the CMVHR can get in touch with Van Weie by email at horses@cmvhr.org or call CMVHR at 962-8512. For more information about the horses or volunteer opportunities at the rescue visit their website, www.cmvhr.org.
