Art Angels for Rescued Mini Horses Online Auction

“Art Angels for Minis” Online Art Auction to Benefit Miniature Horse Rescue


Calling all artists and makers! Want to make a difference in a rescued horse’s life? CRAFT NAPA/Crafting a Life LLC is hosting an online art auction to benefit Angels for Minis, a 501 c3 non-profit miniature horse rescue based in the Bay Area and with a location also in Texas.

Why the need?

“Angels For Minis” is a 501 c3 non-profit Miniature Horse Rescue with three locations: two in the San Francisco Bay Area and one in Texas. We cover rescue needs for the entire western and central United States. We are dedicated to the well being of the unique breed of Miniature Horses. Our goal is to rehabilitate abused, neglected, and unwanted Miniature Horses—innocent victims of the current economy—through the charitable works of our volunteers, sponsors, and adoptive homes. The problem is real: it has become a rampant and pervasive problem of people surrounding mini horses. Through continual education we hope to minimize the need for a miniature horse rescue.” 

What will the auction funds go to?

The Angels for Minis horse rescue has recently seen an extreme increase of mini horse surrenders, and mini horses requiring more intensive and expensive medical care due to neglect, starvation, abuse, and people needing to surrender because of the expensive cost to keep in this uncertain economy. The Rescue is seeking funds to improve their facility to meet these increased medical and rehabilitative needs.
