LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---In Harrison County, Indiana… volunteers are scrambling to save a non-profit that is in jeopardy of foreclosure.
At Buck Creek Valley Rescue, horses like JC have a special bond with volunteers like Rachel Phipps.
"He comes and gives me hugs whenever he knows I'm feeling upset," says Phipps.
She helps to take care of the horses, and the horses have taken care of her.
She was scared to talk to strangers, until she started talking to the animals.
"I had to talk to him, and when I talk to him it felt like I was talking to family members," says Rachel Phipps.
There are 34 horses and other animals at the Rescue, many of which were abused. Oakley is a horse that was taken in after a halter was once embedded into her face.
Now, the safe place the animals call home is in jeopardy of foreclosure.
"Close to $300,000, but it's about $270,000," says Robin Mills, the Owner of Buck Creek Valley Rescue.
Unless owner Robin Mills and her husband can raise the money to buy the property, they will lose everything.
"I mean, it will be devastating if we lose it. I don't know...we're trying our best. That's all I'm saying," says Robin Mills.
"The amount of money that we have to raise in the period of time is not something that can come out of someone's pocket. We really need the support of our community," says Chase Horton, the Treasurer of Buck Creek Valley Rescue.
They're preparing for an auction where farm equipment, horse trailers, a camper, horse memorabilia, saddles and other items will be sold.
They've received nearly $5,000 in donations, but need more.
The owners have been cutting back on bills and groceries so the horses will have food to eat.
"Just cut down on stuff to keep them going," says Robin Mills.
How long the rescue will keep going is uncertain. What is very clear however, is that these volunteers are fighting to save the horses.
"They're happy here. They're really happy here," says Robin Mills.
The auction for Buck Creek Valley Rescue will be held on February 24th at noon.
They are also having a yard sale on Saturday February 23 from 9am- 5pm.
Both events will take place at Buck Creek Valley Rescue, located at 4700 Shewmaker Lane Se in Elizabeth, Indiana.
