Hay Is Needed for Homeless Horses

Iron County has a new horse sanctuary called the Dust Devil Ranch Horse Sanctuary.  This sanctuary was developed and is being run by Ginger Grimes.  The animals placed with her sanctuary have come from various situations including hoarding, neglect, abuse, age or illness.

She is supported by Best Friends on a limited basis and is in need of donations.  The donations needed primarily consist of hay (alfalfa, 3 way, grass mix) , grain (senior grain, rice bran, alfalfa pellets, oats & rolled oats) as well as cash donations for incidentals or donations made directly to local veterinarians for medical care.

The sanctuary has applied for 501.c.3 non-profit status but has not been approved by the IRS as yet.  Friends of Festival Country K9s is an approved 501.c.3 that helps all species of animals throughout Iron County and is offering a tax deductible receipt for any donations made to Dust Devil or any of the Iron County Animal Shelters.

All the Iron County Animals Shelters are also in need of donations ranging from medical expenses (spay/neuter expenses) to food, to toys and blankets to cash donations for incidentals like pooper scoopers, disinfectants, crates for pet adoptions and transportation, and many other needed items.

Friends of Festival Country K9s has set up a donation page on their website where you can make a cash donation to the location of your choice or directly to the sanctuary or shelter.  

Dust Devil Ranch Horse Sanctuary is located at 3305 South 6500 West in Cedar City.  Ginger's direct cell phone number is 410-596-5444 if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment with her to tour the facility.  She is on site but is working so appointments are best.
