A Message from Mary
The arrival of spring is always a time of new beginnings for plants and animals, and this year, spring also brings a fresh start for New England Equine Rescue North. After years of uncertainty about our future, we have purchased and are now settling in to our new facility at 52 Ash Street in West Newbury, a safe and sustainable home for our rescue operation for years to come.
It’s hard to overstate the positive impact of the move on our ability to fulfill our mission. With safe fencing and better shelters, a brightly lit barn, frost-free hydrants, our own hay field, and enough pasture space to allow our rescues to relax and roam, animals and volunteers alike are looking at a future full of possibilities. To everyone who contributed to NEER North’s Home of Our Own campaign—donors, in-kind givers, volunteers, businesses, and financial institutions—thank you for helping to make our dream come true!
In this newsletter, look for updates on the status of some of our rescued equines and a wish list that reflects ongoing and new requests. One wish in particular—a tractor with a bucket—is especially needed to help us manage chores in our expanded pasture space. Also look for details of our June 13 Open House. Featuring live music and refreshments, this event will be a chance to celebrate NEER North’s new beginning together. Hope we see you there!
