About Becky's Hope
We saw Becky for the first time on a hot summer day in 1997. She did not look like a horse, but a walking skeleton with weeping wounds and severe hair loss. The enclosure she was trapped in was full of junk and weeds, not at all suited for the needs of a horse. She had no water or shelter to help her cope with the blistering summer sun. Authorities were immediately contacted and her owner was ordered to provide adequate care for her. Just one day later, she was spotted again, conditions unchanged. We took legal action and won custody of her in just a couple of days.
As soon as we could, we removed her from that desperate situation. Then, the real work began. We promptly transported her to Texas A&M University where she underwent several surgeries to mend her many wounds. Becky was put on a rigorous program for rehabilitation by the veterinarians that she was being treated by. Her recovery was long and arduous. Considerations had to be made for everything from long term wound care to specialized feeding programs to help boost her immune system and speed recovery.
After several months of constant care, Becky made a full recovery. Her name, Becky, is a tribute to the grandmother of one of our co-founders; Hope comes from our belief that we can provide hope for all of the abused and neglected horses that are found globally. Becky passed in July of 2016. She is remembered as the beloved matriarch of the rescue that bears her name and was founded to save her and the as many animals, like her, as possible.
