DUSZKA and DOROTKA

Update 09/27/2021
Dear ones,
On behalf of Duszka and Dorotka, we bow down to you. The animals have a fresh start. They can forget about the fear and suffering that always kept them company. They are already with us and are slowly beginning to believe that life can consist of happy, carefree moments. We would like to thank you for that with all our hearts!

The girls are now in quarantine, soon a farrier and a vet inspection, after which a decision will be made whether they will become our permanent residents, or our sanctuary will be just a stop on the way to the new adoption home.

Their story

Look at them for a moment. It will take you 10 seconds. As much as washing your hands. Or deciding which coffee to drink in the morning. 10 seconds. Apparently that’s enough to make up your mind.

Duszka and Dorotka. What can I write to you? We know nothing about them. Nobody called us. Silence. We weren’t looking for them. They came out of the blue. They didn’t ask for approval

We were taking oats on a large farm yesterday. Lots of oats. It took a long time to load.
A drama was unfolding behind the fence, on a property next to the farm . Double drama. A mare and a child were being loaded onto the truck. The foal fell off the gangway three times. Everyone was running, screaming, jerking, probably kicking, and doing other things too. This is already a live meat. Nobody cares about the animal anymore. Just throw it down the truck somehow. Close the door. Forget it. There is still more to be thrown in…

We know that it is impossible to save everyone. We tried to look the other way for a minute. Into the sky. Count the wood boards in the fence or the Oat bags.

But when the little one squealed, we lost our patience. We ran through the gate, tearfully grasped the rope of the foal and simply begged the traders to stop. Everyone looked at us as fools. It wasn’t wise to rush in there like that. But sometimes one does first and thinks later. It was that time….

If then we had a million dollars with us and someone would demand it for their lives, we would probably pay it on the spot, driven by emotions. The little one was sweaty, scared and bruised. The mother stood at the top after climbing the gangplank humbly. But the little one fell over on her oversized hoofs at the end of crooked, short legs and the people nearby didn’t care how but when they will put it inside.

I don’t know why they agreed. Trading for slaughter is legal. Loading was a violation of everything, but we had no witnesses nor evidence. They didn’t have to talk to us at all .. I think they thought we were so unpredictable and emotional that we better get what we want. Because, soon, half of the village will come to witness the loading.
We really wanted to take both of them with us and not leave them there any minute longer. However, we could only make a down payment and give the rope back to the owner.

Look at them for a moment. It will take you 10 seconds. As much as washing your hands. Or deciding which coffee to drink in the morning. 10 seconds. Apparently that’s enough to make up your mind.
make up your mind. Life or death.

Let’s grab the rope together and do not let go. Will You grab it?

We have to collect PLN 6,300 (1596 USD) to buy a mother and a daughter and cover their transport to the Centaurus Farm.

We have only 3 days. September 24 is the deadline. Later they will open the truck doors again. But we won’t be behind the fence anymore to grab the rope …
