FALLBROOK – Fallbrook resident Evelyn Zeller opened her estate to host a charity fundraiser for Laughing Pony Rescue of Rancho Santa Fe on June 14. Zeller is a friend and supporter of the worthy cause.

The event featured wine tasting, entertainment and a live auction, which raised over $1,200 to feed the horses.

Laughing Pony Rescue, a non-profit 501(c)3 founded in 2009, is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating sick, abused, and abandoned horses of any breed. The rescue effort helps horses and humans together.

"Our long term goal is to have a facility where disabled children and adults can take part in therapeutic riding programs featuring rescued horses," said an affiliate.

Celia Sciacca, the president of Laughing Pony Rescue, has rescued more than 300 horses to date, nursed them back to healthy mind, body and spirit and adopted them out to loving homes.

Each day, Sciacca and her team of volunteers take care of up to 20 horses at the Laughing Pony Rescue Ranch. They have other rescue horses in their network being fostered at ranches around Southern California.

The rescue operation, rehabilitation, training, and sponsorship/adoption efforts take hard work, but volunteers said it has been well worth it "when an amazing animal that has been given a second chance finds a loving home."
