Happy Hooves Equine Rescue Group has been in operation since 1995.

It rescues and rehabilitates abandoned and unwanted horses and provides a renewed sense of purpose to their lives and the lives of those who come into contact with them.

"I get people that need help, and they help horses and horses help them, so it's kind of a nice symbiotic relationship that they have," said CEO and founder, Mary Evans.

But, this fall Evan's supplier delivered bales of moldy hay, which is essentially poisonous for her animals, and refused to refund her money.

"From the beginning, when it was cut, it probably didn't dry properly," Evans explained. "Then it was baled damp and then it molds."

Evans has been able to sell some of the moldy hay to a cattle farm. Unlike horses, a cow's digestive track can process mold. And she's been able to recoup some of her losses, but not all of it.

So, she's hoping to raise $14,000 through an online fundraiser and raffle. Anyone can buy a raffle ticket for $10 and they will be entered for a chance to win.
