Animal heaven! Best rescue ever!

Viva Rescue Is run by two women whose lives are dedicated to the well being of all of their animals. They rescue horses, goats, chickens, and more from abuse, neglect, slaughter, hoarding cases, shelters, etc. I have seen first hand the care they provide their animals with and they literally give their animals everything you could ever imagine! Their animals get chiropractor care, many therapies, and massages… I’m never not amazed at the high quality care given. Viva Rescue deserves so much more funding and I really hope the word can get out about them. They are doing incredible work and deserve all the support in the world!!!! Woohoo Viva Rescue and team! 🙂
