RAINBOWS EDGE INC. is a 501c3 not for profit. Donors got together to get a piece of land to develop not just a year-round horse rescue facility, but a fully functioning DISASTER RELIEF AND RECOVERY FACILTY IN NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDA, to specialize in EQUINE AND AG animals during and after Natural Disasters. Rainbows Edge has been setting up and managing supplies and shipments to and from staging areas for several years. With each storm we learn more. This facility is in the name of Rainbows Edge Inc. so all created and built will be taught to and handed down for generations. IT IS HERE TO STAY! We the board never set out to be anything more than a training shelter for rescue horses, but YOU showed us a need that was being overlooked and also a doorway to scammers and those that take advantage of those needing help. We have seen groups have shipments stolen, misplaced, or not land where they belong. We have seen people pop from one staging area to another hoarding for themselves, and sadly others going without the help they need to care for their Equine or other animals. We have networked with several Rescues, Groups, and amazing people around Florida, the Carolinas, and Puerto Rico. This allows donations to leave Your Staging Area and be moved to hub locations that are Trusted, Vetted, and get the help to the Equine and All Animals in the communities getting the donations where they are needed the most. Why do we say YOUR STAGING AREA? Because it exists because of all of you. We are but the caretakers of what you have said is needed, created, and support during times of need. We are so honored to have been given your trust to do so. HERE IS THE CHALLENGE! We believe in people and their love for Equine and all animals. We want you to donate only $10 and to ask all of your friends to donate $10. The more of us that come together, the more we can help the Equine, and all animals, and can create positive changes for them. We are stronger in numbers! We are out to prove there are Thousands that care and this facility is being built for one purpose. The purpose of helping Equine and all animals as well as their humans when they are in need due to a disaster. We are located in Greenville, Florida, near the Florida/Georgia line and can be easily reached from every direction. We are part of the Jefferson County FL CERT Team. We have a MOU with Jefferson County. We have set up, maintained, and managed their Equine and AG staging area for disasters. Most counties use their own workers, they pull from different departments to cover their staging areas. After a month or two they need those workers back in their departments. Since we are a private 501c3 and network with many groups from all over the country for donations and supplies to help Equine and all animals, after a disaster we can stay working until the donations stop coming in. We were able to keep active after Hurricane Michael for 7 months, when most all other help for Equine and all animals had left. WE were blessed to meet dog and cat groups to network with. We were able to haul supplies to rescues and the public to help feed their animals as well. Amount of Goal is $30,000. It will purchase shipping containers to store donations as they come in waiting to go to locations needing them. Covered areas to hold horses found or needing to evacuate from an area. A large shed to set up for the Veterinarian to care for injured Equine and animals as they come in for help and safe keeping. Horse fencing for small paddocks for those needing to stay a few days and stretch their legs. Small shelter for goats, pigs and/or chickens. Water buckets and feed pans. Portable bathhouse for transporters and those needing to stay at the staging area. A couple of low-cost RV’s for those that have driven all night to get donations to the staging area. THIS IS ALL UP TO YOU, AND WE BELIEVE IN YOU! THIS WHOLE MISSION RUNS ON DONATIONS VOLUNTEERS 100%. There are NO paid employees! WE INVITE YOU TO CHECK OUT OUR LINKS AND PICTURES TO SHOW YOU ALL WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU!
