You may have seen the article this morning in the Tri-City Herald about Spot O Faith Farm rescuing seven horses Tues from a rural farm in Pasco.Volunteers from the non-profit organization in Pasco, went to the property on Birch Road after the horses' owner reached an agreement with the Franklin County Sheriff's Office that he would hand over the starving animals.

There are also a number of dogs that need fostering or permanent homes.

 Spot O Faith Farm is run by A woman who dedicated her entire life to helping people and animals needs some help.

Linda Christiano has been a registered nurse for more than 30 years, but last summer she broke her back, forcing her to take extended medical leave.

Linda runs Spot-O-Faith Farm out of her Pasco home, where she boards, and takes in horses. Right now she has eight horses and five of them are injured or sick.

"Until recently I wasn't even able to lift a bucket to carry grain," says Linda of her injuries.
"Abused horses, rescued horses, horses that would normally be put to slaughter, Linda rescues them," explains Karen Nicksich a holistic animal healer who volunteers her time with Linda's injured animals. Linda's injury has also put a financial strain on the farm. "My husband works two jobs and a third one here at home to help with the animals. it's expensive," says Christiano, " but he knew he would be getting all these animals when he married me, because it's what I love." 

Donations can be made online under "How you can help" tab at Spot O Farm website.

There is also an account set up at Yakima Federal Bank. And, you can also buy feed or make donations at Columbia Grain and Feed on 20th Street in Pasco.

The Non-profit is also looking for people good in construction to help with the finishing of a barn that is being built (hopefully before winter) to shelter all the horses.

Thanks to all of you who choose to help in this worthy endeavor!
