Unless they're a LEGITIMATE, REGISTERED rescue that's proven by their listing as a 501c3 organization, you're extremely naive if you send things to people just because they're begging.
Do you really
want to help someone else support their horse hoarding habit? Because that's all it is. They want to sit back on their butts and let other people throw money and tack at them.
My money, items, and time can be better spent on local shelters and legitimate
It amuses me that you think somehow you're more noble
that the rest of us, because you're not smart enough to get a tax deduction on items and money you give away.
Anyone can call
themselves a rescue. Doesn't make it true. Real
rescues do their due diligence and get all the proper paperwork and legal classifications in order before
they start asking for donations.
OP, if you want stupid people to just blindly give you stuff because you're claiming to be a rescue, go over to the ABR Forum. Those people are dumber than a box of hair, and throw money at anyone who will give them a sob story.
