Why should this person or animal be a PetPartners Animaltarian of the Year?
Christine Distefano rescues, saves, and rehabilitates unwanted, neglected, abused, injured, etc. horses from the racing world, your neighbor's backyard, divorce situations, neglect situations, and any other situation an animal can find themselves in. At this time they have around 40 horses who Christine and her 19 year old daughter care for on 6 different farms every day with no help. They tirelessly&selflessly work hard to ensure these horses & other farm animals are safe and well cared for- even spoiled. Most of these animals do not know what it means to be loved until they land safely at Amaryllis Farm. Christine has devoted her life to saving horses and giving them a place to call their home forever. Some are adopted out to very well qualified and researched homes before Christine allows any of the animals to leave the farm. Christine is one of a kind and loves these animals more than words can say. For one to devote their entire life to animals- she is a true animaltarian!
If this person or animal was selected, what would they do with the $5,000?
Christine would use the money to care for the horses who no one supports. Many of these horses are dumped and neglected and Christine must pay the expenses to make sure they are cared for and safe. With little to no donations coming in, Christine would use the funds to provide feed and shelter.
