The Aiken Equine Rescue suffered a devastating fire last Saturday, April 3rd. No humans were injured, but one pony, named Whistle, is still currently recovering from burns to his back and belly. The entire main barn did burn to the ground, and the loss of it and all its contents will be difficult for the non-profit. If you can help this organization get back on its feet, please visit their website for more information about donations.
