Another Chance 4 Horses Inc. official Document regarding Mule Rescue Ranch
Date - 5-27-12
After careful consideration we have deemed it necessary to correct misinformation after an unwarranted attack. Mule Rescue Ranch has led people to believe that they sent funds they collected $800.00 to Another Chance 4 Horses, Inc., for mule #4-24-7 - $600.00. We made every attempt to help this mule. However, the funds were in the hands of Mule Rescue Ranch and unfortunately were never received. It is a complete tragedy that the mule was lost.
We received a fundraising application from Mule Rescue Ranch on 5-4-12 (Friday) for Mule #4-24-7 the application stated that they are a 501c(3) organization based in Kopwsin, WA 98388 also on Facebook as Mule Rescue Ranch. (see Fundraising Application page 1 of 3 below as exhibit 1) The organization stated on their application that they had raised $800.00 (the bail for the mule was $600.00). The $800.00 raised through donations by Mule Rescue Ranch was never received by Another Chance 4 Horses, Inc. On Sunday in a last attempt to save the mule I, Christy Sheidy, personally emailed them stating no funds had been received from their organization and asked if they had changed their mind or needed assistance explained the program was over but we were still reaching out to help any others we could as long as we were able to. We received no reply back. (see below -exhibit 2)
As per our policy, if a horse is not available donations received by Another Chance 4 Horses, Inc. will be rolled – our chip in collected $185.00 Gross amount. Any sponsorship or direct bail which is payment in full will be refunded. However, no payment was received from Mule Rescue Ranch. Possibly the reason that they diverted totally away from the truth is that the donors would not be receptive to the fact that their money $800.00 collected by Mule Rescue Ranch was not used for the intention that it was collected for, to save mule 4-24-7 bail amount $600.00 and subsequently the mule was lost, shipped to slaughter. Not even an ounce of remorse over losing the mule has been observed. Their conduct attacking a 501c(3) rescue is not ethical also collecting funds and not using the funds for the purpose collected is not ethical.

Thank you so much for emailing us and wanting to help the long ears. We received the placement form and the mule is currently available but we didn’t receive payment. Please let us know how we can help you or if you have changed your mind or if you need assistance. We will be leaving shortly and the program is closed today but we will still try to help as long as we are able to. I have copied (name removed) and (name removed) on this email as well they are both seasoned horse helpers who can assist if I am not personally available.
Please contact me at (Removed)- this email address goes directly to my cell. Thank you so much.
