Much more info to follow! Here we go..... Hope the horses can count on you.



Please “like” and follow us on Facebook:

Chris' Hope House for The Gingersnap Girls Foundation page – Chris' Hope House will have a wide variety of wonderful items that will be used to raise funds for the horses. Items will include antiques, vintage items, tack (saddles, bridles, etc.), turn-out blankets, furniture, gently worn riding clothes & boots, horse-themed gift items, and equine art work.

The Gingersnap Girls Equine Education & Rescue Foundation group – This will be where we will have the day to day activities of what GGF is doing. This group is for the people who want to be closely involved with GGF and our current and ongoing projects. This group is for like-minded individuals who want to help the horses in a positive way. This will be updated every couple of days on average.

Due to our non-profit status and the way we are structured through the IRS, the GGF cannot attempt to "influence legislation" but........we, or I, as an individual CAN suggest that all Virginia state residents acquaint themselves, as soon as possible, with House Bill 1541 and Senate Bill 1026 that will "dilute minimum care standards for horses, farm animals, and livestock in the state of Virginia."

If you would like more information on this most urgent humane matter, please e-mail info@gingersnapgirls.org.

January, 2018

Dear Friends,

First of all, we want to wish all of our supporters a very Happy New Year.

Thank you to those of you who have supported our mission of rescuing the abused, abandoned, sick, and slaughter bound. As we head into our 15th year, we are trying to raise funds to get us through the winter. (Picture below is of Willow, rescued from a hoarder this summer and now adopted into a loving home)

Unfortunately, we have fallen very short on funds needed to start this new year and it is a pressing concern. We missed the deadline on a much needed grant due to lack of office help. Though we have done all we know - held a raffle, a generous donor offering to match all donations through the end of 2017, and selling donated items, we are far from what we need to enter 2018 and it is very worrisome.

Our resources are low and needs are great.
We must pay our vet bill by the end of this month.
Currently, we owe $3000 to Haymarket Veterinary.
If you would prefer to donate directly to our vet,

Haymarket Vet - 703/754-3309

We have recently take in 3 mini ponies who were slated for auction. We know that all 3 would have been headed for slaughter. Fortunately, 2 of the 3 have plans ! Fudge has been adopted by one of our previous adopters and Elf (in the picture) will be learning how to fill the shoes of our beloved, Chief, as the official mascot of the Gingersnap Girls Foundation. He will, hopefully, be visiting schools, fairs, festivals, nursing homes, and more.

Sadly, these little ones will be the last for awhile as the Gingersnap Girls Foundation has made the decision to not allow any more intakes for the time being. It is sad for us but we recognize our limitations. We will be continuing to network to help others, continuing our humane education program, and
our Good Samaritan program will continue with funding from Col. Sam O'Brien.

We need your help now, more than ever. Winter is the hardest time for us. We have several permanent residents with health and lameness issues. We must provide for their care through these difficult months.

Monetary donations are desperately needed as are volunteers to help with paperwork, public outreach, and events, such as our upcoming Silent Auction Benefit (April 7, more information to follow).

Thank you to all who continue to believe in our mission. We are very much in need of your help.

We are very grateful to all.
