You can help - Oak Meadows Ranch needs your help. The city of Wildomar has requested that Oak Meadows Ranch get what is called an Unconditional Use Permit so Oak Meadows Ranch can continue to share the rescued, unwanted horses with the visitors and continue to allow visitors use of the property. The cost of this Unconditional Use Permit may be as high as $10,000. With your help Oak Meadows Ranch from donations can continue to share the rescued, unwanted horses with the community such as with special needs children, special needs adults, senior citizens, children, teenagers and adults of all ages. Visitors will be able to still be able to groom, care and exercise horses and ride the rideable horses and for those that need to do community service with this Unconditional Use Permit. Oak Meadows Ranch needs your help for all of this to continue in the future or the city of Wildomar may not allow visitors visiting the ranch if the Unconditional Use Permit is not paid. These rescued, unwanted horses need your help, love and affection. Without our help many of these horses would be dead today. Many would have been slaughtered and used for food in other countries. You currently are hearing on the local news that many well known companies to us are using horse meat for food and serving it to people. Blue Pearl Project and Oak Meadows Ranch would appreciate if you spread the word that a donation of any kind, small or large would be greatly appreciated so that the Unconditional Use Permit fee can be raised and be paid to the city of Wildomar so that the city of Wildomar will be happy and those that have and still do plan to visit the rescued, unwanted horses and use the facilities at Oak Meadows Ranch can.
