FARMINGTON — The Giddy Up & Go 4-H Horse Club will sponsor its 11th annual fundraiser for the Double B Equine Rescue this month.

The Double B Equine Rescue takes in surrendered, unwanted, neglected and abused horses and other equines from around the state and provides them with rehabilitative care.

They currently have 33 equines and need help. Donations of a monetary amount and/or hay, grain, shavings and related equipment would be appreciated as they take care of minis, ponies, donkeys and horses.

Members of the Giddy Up & Go Horse Club will begin collecting donations on Saturday, Feb. 17, although donations can be made anytime. Donations will be delivered to the Double B Equine Rescue on Saturday, Feb. 24.

To make a donation of hay, grain, shavings or equipment, contact club leader Donna Crockett at 207-578-2269, call/text. To make a monetary donation, send a check made payable to Double B Equine Rescue to Giddy Up & Go, UMaine Cooperative Extension, 138 Pleasant St., Suite #1, Farmington, ME 04938.
