A pony’s paradise equine rescue seems to be the newest “pop up” rescue looking to cash in on the kill buyers horses..from what I’ve gathered this organization is run by a Melissa G. Ulmer and various other non-important members. So I did a little digging after seeing a post about a horse they are looking to save with the hefty price tag of $2000 (meanwhile the horse is listed for less then $400). Apparently this $2000 is for QT, transport and bail..I’ve been around horses and rescuing them for over 30 years…nobody needs that much money to get a horse from the kill buyer and safely home after QT. So, disappointed, I continued my search and found multiple parties who were very willing to say a few words about this Melissa. Long story short, this organization is nothing more then an attempt to have personal horses paid for through donations, lying, deceiving and fundraising to purchase goods for the boarding business that is running out of the same location by this Melissa. I also gathered from their facebook page that a horse didn’t have his feet done for almost a year while in their care. I understand that they are a 501 but here in the state of PA- that means nothing (ac4h, miracles happen for horses) it doesn’t make them anymore worthy of your donations then any other private non 501 rescue. I also noticed that they have been in operation almost a year but haven’t really made any leaps or bounds in furthering their organization. I’d suggest donating to a worthy cause such as the SPCA or local humane society. It won’t be long before this rescue folds along side all the other pop-up rescues coming out of the woodworks to cash in! Unless you want to pay for this Melissa’s boarding business and personal horses, DO NOT DONATE and DO NOT SUPPORT. .
