The owners of a horse sanctuary in Manorville says their property is in need of help.
The Twin Oaks Horse Sanctuary is a retirement village for horses that are too old to be raced or ridden. Many of the horses have been abandoned by their owners.
The Zalak family says taking care of the horses and the property costs about $6,000 a month, and finances are getting more challenging by the day. The Zalaks say after 26 years of living and loving everything about horses, closing the sanctuary is just not an option.
"We need help to keep going," says Christy Zalak.
The Zalaks say money is always helpful and goes toward paying for hay and grain for the horses. They say offers to help fix up the property are greatly appreciated as well. The barn roof was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy and other severe weather since then.
