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.
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

of all, we want to wish all of our supporters a very Happy
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)
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.
resources are low and needs are great.
must pay our vet bill by the end of this month.
we owe $3000 to Haymarket Veterinary.
you would prefer to donate directly to our vet,
Vet - 703/754-3309
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.
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,
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.
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
