Five of the 12 currently sheltered by the NHSCPA are in protective custody, waiting for the courts to decide their fate: return to the families they were originally removed from, because of abuse or ne- glect, or be awarded to the NHSPCA, which will adopt them out to new owners.

has topped $10,000. After four years of hard

times, Live and Let Live Farm remains a blessing, and other non-profit or- ganizations have stepped up to help. Lucky’s Leg- acy in Epping was formed two years ago when EPO- NA, Equine Protection of North America, folded because of lack of funds. Becky’s Gift, a New Hamp- shire non-profit formed in memory of Becky Lang, an avid horse lover killed in a car accident, pro- vides food and assistance for medical care so own- ers can continue to care for their horses. Volunteers across the

state remain the unsung heroes of animal res- cue at a time when de- mand outstrips facilities, charitable donations are shrinking nationwide, and more horse owners are finding themselves in hot water. Today, Paradis, 56, man-

ages the day to day op- erations at the non-profit refuge she started 15 years ago, overseeing an army of 290 regular and oc- casional volunteers, in-

cluding homeschoolers, animal lovers with nine- to-five jobs, retirees, a youth group from the Con- cord Unitarian-Universal- ist Church, handicapped people in wheelchairs who enjoy brushing and caring for horses, and first-time non-violent offenders do- ing community service through the Merrimack County Department of Corrections. Each year Paradis raises

roughly $200,000 to keep the farm going - $60,000 for hay alone. In February Live and Let Live became a designated recipient of funds from the Granite State United Way. The refuge still depends heav- ily on individual and busi- ness donors. Ongoing supporters include area supermarkets that donate unsold produce. Rustic Pizza contributes organic pizza crusts. Chichester Country Store sponsors clinics and fundraising events and provides coffee and donuts for farm vol- unteers and food for wild birds and the smaller farm denizens.
