My name is Crystel Denton and I am the Founder of Ranger's Legacy Equine Rescue. The New Mexico Livestock Board has filed misdemeanor charges against me for picking up a horse that I was legally asked to rescue.  I need help to pay an attorney to help me fight these charges.

In February 2014, we were asked to help rescue a horse who had been neglected, starved and abandoned.  Not only had the horse been abandoned, but several months prior she had been attacked by a couple of dogs.  That attack left her with horrendous injuries to her face.  She survived these injuries with no medical attention. 

After driving 4.5 hours to pick up the horse and obtaining a bill of sale signed by the owner of the property that the horse was abandoned on, I and a couple of volunteers brought her back to Ranger's Legacy.  The horse came to be known as Journey.

One week after her arrival, the New Mexico Livestock Board (NMLB) showed up with a warrant, accused me of stealing Journey and took her away.  Not only that, but they then gave her back to the very man who had neglected, starved and abused her.

Now, although the NMLB has not charged me with theft, they are charging me with two other misdemeanor charges.  I have found an Attorney to help me with this case but I need $2500 to retain him.  $1500 has already been pledged.  Time is of the essence since my arraignment and first appearance is scheduled for March 28th at 8:30 am.

Please help!  I appreciate your generosity!!
