Since she was just a young child Victoria has always been driven to save the horses that everyone has given up, trying to turn their life around by giving them one last chance. One or two at a time, horses have come in and out of her life inspiring her to firmly believe that there is always a horse out there in need of refuge, and always a need for someone to feel responsible and intervene on that animal's behalf. Establishing the Last Chance Corral a 501(c)3 non-profit 1986 was the realization of her vision of creating a much-needed facility to offer horses asylum.
Today, not only is LCC still providing save haven for the mistreated, unwanted and simply misunderstood horses, it is also one of the largest (if not the largest) and longest running independently operated neo-natal equine facility. 150-200 orphan nurse mare foals cross through the barn doors every year beginning in Jan. and going through June. Over 20 yrs of experience in rescuing, caring for and re-homing of orphan foals, has earned LCC much respect. Often called upon for advice from veterinarians, breeders and others experiencing the pit falls of orphan care.
We are 100% donor funded and have a small staff that is employed year round. During foal season our staff increases to handle the demands foal care. Having trained competent employees is is essential to our success. We do love having volunteers to help us out but just can't rely on volunteers alone, given the level of critical care that we provide here.
