Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Penny Lane Foal Rescue has a three year plan to increase adoptions, fundraising, promoting equine welfare, building volunteers and youth participation, and developing infrastructure of our Board and facility.
Penny Lane Foal Rescue will continue its involvement in community consortiums to promote equine welfare from minimum standards of care to reasonable standards of care.
Our goal is to increase adoptions to two a year, or three over a two year period, to very committed and trained individuals who have relationships with our rescues and will provide them with forever, loving stable homes. By making successful adoptions, we can keep space open for new orphaned intakes and possibly returned adoptees, if needed.
Penny Lane Foal Rescue's fundraising goals will increase from $50,000 to $75,000 annually over the next three years. This will not only cover our ongoing program expenses of approximately $20k per year but will assist us in building our facility's infrastructure, provide emergency foal assistance, and issue early gelding grants to our community.
Penny Lane Foal Rescue will continue its involvement in community consortiums to promote equine welfare from minimum standards of care to reasonable standards of care. We will continue to advocate for clearly defined standards of equine care with the New Mexico Livestock Board, in agricultural cities, and horse registries for consistent and objective investigations and prosecutions of extreme neglect and abuse cases throughout our state.
Penny Lane Foal Rescue will recruit twenty-five adult volunteers over the next three years by attending outreach events, senior and active living facilities, and promoting volunteering at our facility on social media and word of mouth. We will increase our number of youth providing rehabilitation, socialization, and foundation skills to our rescues from twenty to thirty participants a year over the next three years. We will advertise our youth programs at schools, social media, home schooling programs, special-interest groups, and word of mouth.
Penny Lane Foal Rescue will continue to build our infrastructure for sustainability of services to orphaned foals throughout New Mexico and on the Navajo Nation. We will offer short-term Board positions with voting privileges for six months to one year of service. These temporary Board positions will be responsible for fundraising, in addition to a specific area of focus such as volunteer and youth recruitment and retention, education, donor acquisition and relations, and overseeing projects at our facility. his year, we are installing a backup generator to the property for electricity to our well should power become unavailable for an extended time and several large water storage containers in case we experience problems with our well that provides water to all of our rescues. We are starting a permaculture growing project to provide additional food sources for our equines.

This year, we are installing a backup generator to the property for electricity to our well should power become unavailable for an extended time. We are purchasing several large water storage containers, from 150-2500 gallons, to fill water troughs throughout the facility in case we experience problems with our well that provides water to all of our rescues. In addition to ensuring an emergency water supply at Penny Lane Foal Rescue, we are starting a permaculture growing project to provide additional food sources for our equines and to encourage greater volunteer participation from our non-horsey community who might not want direct contact with the horses. As these raised bed vegetables, bushes, and fruit tree food sources grow over the next three years, they are expected to become additional sources of income for our rescue to sell to the public.

Penny Lane Foal Rescue will continue its involvement in community consortiums to promote equine welfare from minimum standards of care to reasonable standards of care. We will continue to advocate for clearly defined standards of equine care with the New Mexico Livestock Board, in agricultural cities, and horse registries for consistent and objective investigations and prosecutions of extreme neglect and abuse cases throughout our state. We encourage redefining equines from livestock to a modified livestock definition with greater protections. We will continue to work with our community, as well as with the Rangers and members of our reservations, to provide education, resources, and assistance for orphaned foals culled out from the round ups and those purchased at auctions. Over the next three years, we will provide more opportunities for early gelding across our state and on the Navajo Nation by working with animal welfare groups, the Rangers, NN Dept. of Ag, R-Vets, local veterinarians, and veterinarian programs.

Penny Lane Foal Rescue received its 501(c)3 in 2019. Since that time, we have rescued and rehabilitated eight medically fragile orphaned foals that would have likely died without our interventions. Our success rate is 100% for rescuing and rehabilitating orphaned foals at our facility. We provide an average of five orphaned foal emergency kits and ongoing case management to the public each year ensuring that these most vulnerable little ones receive the necessary supplies for their survival within the community for the first six months of their lives. We have assisted in matching two feral orphaned foals with nurse mares throughout our state this past year. This year, we have thirteen active adult volunteers and twenty youth from our community providing rehabilitation, socialization, and foundation skills to our rescues. In addition to our 10 weekly volunteers, we hosted two large fence repair projects with 16 volunteers from our local churches. In the last three years of operation, our community building and fundraising efforts have been so successful that our current financial security is very strong with total net assets exceeding $150,000. Additionally, we have placed two of our rescues into caring long-term homes and continue to provide follow-up case management around their ongoing welfare.

In 2021, we partnered with Navajo Technical Institute and R-Vets to provide comprehensive gelding clinics on the Navajo Nation. We also provided gelding assistance grants to individuals throughout New Mexico for the early gelding of colts preventing unwanted horses from going through the slaughter pipeline. Additionally, we provided emergency assistance and ongoing case management to eight care takers of orphaned foals in our community with only one fatality.
