Meet Lucky, the official mascot for Misfit Acres Inc. located in Amboy, Minnesota. In August of 1994, Lucky was saved from the “kill pen” and given a new home thanks to Jody, the founder of Misfit Acres. After learning more about the “live slaughter” industry, Jody decided to become actively involved in equine welfare. She started her own sanctuary to give previously unlucky horses a permanent home that is safe. The horses that arrive at Misfit Acres are free to live the rest of their lives happily and worry free from abuse and neglect.
Why is recycling important to Misfit Acres?
“Misfit Acres depends on recycling! Not only is it the right thing to do, it provides additional funding for our horse rescue and engages people in our mission. So many people are realizing that recycling is the only way to save our environment. As more and more people become aware that their “trash” feeds horses in rescue, we are contacted weekly through either email or phone with questions from people about recycling, which we embrace. It is not unusual at all for us to come home from work and there will be a bag of inkjet cartridges sitting on our deck.
Recycling – a true environmental win, a true fundraising win and a true capacity-building win situation. After all, who could not resist feeding these little cuties?”
– Bruce & Jody Thisted, Owners of Misfit Acres
Dixie moved in seven years ago and loves to chat your ears off!
Little Boy enjoys hanging out in the front pasture and Peanut gives hugs by wrapping her head and neck around your leg.
Misfit Acres Inc. has been recycling inkjets, cell phones, and other small electronics with Planet Green for four years. To help provide funding for these adorable sanctuary horses, visit http://planetgreenrecycle.com/misfitacres.
