Thalia Ochoa, a 22-year old who lives in North Delta and a lifelong horse lover, searches for horses that do not do well in horseracing. These horses are either sold or auctioned off for slaughter. The woman then proceeded to create a rescue agency named Second Chance Horse Rescue.
Within the span of eight months the agency has already saved 25 horses and placed them in their forever homes. Rescuing horses in need would not have been possible if it not for Liz Smith’s help (whom she met through her boyfriend last year). Thalia focuses on fundraising and promotion whereas Liz helps with the horses in getting them ready for adoption.
The agency is continuously holding fundraisers to save and take care of horses until they can find their forever home.
