A Tribute to the Equine~Human Bond
Wishing On Stars
Written & Contributed By
I wished on every star last night
That time could shift to make things right.
That somehow I just had a horrible dream
And nothing separated our valiant team.
I dreamed that you hadn’t gone away
That tomorrow we could still run and play.
I wished that death wasn’t the end
I wished my heart could solemnly mend.
I prayed for a promise that we’d reunite
That in the end everything would be alright.
You’d run to me and I to you
We’d be better than before, good as new.
A place where age couldn’t cripple and sickness wouldn’t stay
We would be forever together, with nothing in our way.
In Memory of Riley
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Sir Winston Churchill
The United SPCA, Founded in 2010 is a leader in Oregon in equine protection and rehabilitation. We are a 501(c)3 and depend on private donations to continue our work. Your bequest, a gift from the heart, guarantees that our life-saving work continues. Planned gifts are an important source of support in building a sound future for the United SPCA.
Although bequests are the simplest and most popular form of planned gifts, your gift can consist of almost anything--money, bank accounts, life insurance policies, securities, works of art or real estate. Additionally, you may establish a charitable remainder trust as a way to help the United SPCA in its endeavor to provide for homeless, neglected, and abused horses.
