For Immediate Release
For more information:
(May 12, 2012; Conroe, Texas) Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society (BEHS), an organization that helps starving and abused horses across Texas, is joining forces with the Horse & Rider Store in Conroe, Texas to hold the first Bluebonnet – Horse & Rider Adopt-a-Thon. The event will take place from 10am to 4pm on May 12th at the Horse & Rider Store on at 15210 I-45 in Conroe, Texas.
Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society will bring several horses of different ages, breeds and training levels to the event to meet the public. Anyone who is pre-approved to adopt may take their new horse home that day and will pay half the normal adoption fee! Individuals interested in being pre-approved to adopt can download an adoption application from the organization’s website at http://www.bluebonnetequine.org.
Anyone who applies to adopt during the adopt-a-thon will receive half price adoption fees on any horses they adopt within the following 30 days. The Horse & Rider Store will also be offering discounts on items in the store to Bluebonnet adopters.
The event will include a saddle raffle, silent auction, and much more. Proceeds from the silent auction and saddle raffle will benefit the horses of Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society. “We want to make this a fun-filled horse day for everyone to attend,” commented Dr. Jennifer Williams, President and Executive Director of Bluebonnet. “We’re hoping people will come out, meet some horses, learn about the rescue, take advantage of the great deals the store is offering, and decide to become part of the Bluebonnet family by adopting a horse or joining the rescue and becoming a volunteer.”
BEHS still needs help to make this a successful event. The organization is currently seeking: new and used tack, farm and ranch items and horse and ranch-themed jewelry and home décor for the silent auction. All donations are tax-deductible.
Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of equines by educating owners, assisting law enforcement agencies, rehabilitating abused and neglected equines, and placing them into safe, permanent homes. BEHS has been overwhelmed with calls about starving horses throughout Texas, and the organization hopes to make the Bluebonnet Adopt-a-Thon an annual event that will enable them to help many horses throughout the year.
